UNIVERSITY PARK, ILL. — Avatar Corp. created ProKote 5022-AO, a water-miscible release agent for organic food processors.

ProKote 5022-AO is allergen-free and contains only naturally derived ingredients. It has a high smoke and flash point and is capable of withstanding extreme processing temperatures, the company said.

The patent-pending product is intended for use in bagel and tortilla production, dried fruit manufacturing and other applications where an oil-based solution is not desired. Customers interested in trying ProKote 5022-AO may contact Avatar Corp. to receive a 5-gallon pail for trial evaluation.
