If you’re in the business of keeping your customers' kitchens running safe and clean, you’re aware of the impact cooking oil can have over time on drains and pipes. A lot of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) can build up in systems like grease traps, sewage systems and industrial systems.

Many of us know what happens when you mistakenly under-preserve a biological product: the bottles start to bulge or suck-in (the latter can also be caused by fragrance issues), fungal growth starts to appear or it starts to have an unpleasant odor. But do you know what signs to look for if your product is over-preserved?

Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) that originate from restaurants, residential homes, and food processing facilities are commonly discharged into sewer systems. Picture things like vegetable oil and solid fats, such as lard. They eventually accumulate and can cause blockages in drainage systems, grease traps, and lift stations. Luckily for us (and our customers), FOG and other solids can be effectively broken down, digested and removed with the
