NewswireToday – /newswire/ – Silver Spring, MD, United States, 03/26/2007 – Manny & Olga’s first pizza shop to ban trans fat in Mid-Atlantic region.


Manny & Olga’s Pizza® a popular pizza chain in the DC metro area, proudly announces it is testing trans fat free oils. Tran’s fats, which are neither required nor beneficial for health, will not found in any of Manny & Olga’s fresh, gourmet ingredients. Manny & Olga’s health conscious menu is just one of the many reasons their pizzas taste so good.

As consumers become increasingly aware of trans fats and the health risks associated with them, people are starting to demand healthier options. Cities from New York to Los Angeles and everywhere in between are starting to rebel against the unsaturated fats by taking such actions as banning them from restaurants. Even Crisco® recently announced its first reformulation in 95 years, recreating its entire line of shortening products to contain zero grams trans fat per serving.

Their completely trans fat free menu makes Manny & Olga’s one of the most health conscious pizza choices available. All of their ingredients, ranging from traditional choices of pepperoni and cheese to the more “gourmet” options including Spinach, Broccoli and Fresh sliced tomatoes, are fresh. “We take pride in the fact that we make a product that is both healthy and delicious,” says Bobby Athanasakis, President of Manny & Olga’s Pizza. “Taking the initiative to have a healthy and trans fat free menu is one of the things that puts us on a higher level of pizza creation.”
