Using the Zepter system we properly prepare healthy food, with no fats – creating tastier, yet healthier meals.
- Food looks better: color, shape and texture are preserved
- Food is tastier: natural flavors and aromas are preserved (even without adding salt)
- Food is healthier: nutritive and biological values (essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, proteins, micro and macro trace elements) are preserved. Food does not burn and there is no acrolein, a cancerogenic substance.
