Malaysians love to eat, so what could be better than enjoying favourite local treats but with fewer calories? Brand-new Scott® Calorie Light Premium Towel is specifically designed for superior oil absorbency, to help tackle one of the main concerns of fellow Malaysians – high calorie consumption. The product is made to absorb oil easily and effectively, especially the excess oil from the surface of foods, hence one could enjoy delicious great food yet with a reduced calorie intake from fat by up to 25 %*!
Many Malaysians consume more than the recommended daily calorie intake – the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization found that the average Malaysian consumes more than 2,900 kcal per day**, well in excess of the recommended 2000 calories per day for adult men and 1500 for adult women.
“Malaysia is a paradise of gastronomical delights and it is no surprise that one of the favourite pastimes of fellow Malaysians is to enjoy food. However, we all know that many of our favorite foods can be unhealthy due to the high oil content used during preparation, but it really can be difficult to say no when, for example, a delicious piece of fried chicken comes your way!” said Ms Soo Woon Yee, Marketing Director, Kimberly-Clark Malaysia.
“Being many Malaysians’ trusted household brand, Scott® is proud to have taken it a step further to help Malaysians take care of their family in an easier and more efficient way with the introduction of Scott® Calorie Light. The brand-new kitchen towel is a first of its kind kitchen towel designed for superior oil absorbency to address one of the biggest challenges in Malaysian kitchens. Not only does it remove oil effectively on the greasiest of kitchen surfaces, it absorbs excess oil effectively from food, making it possible for our consumers to enjoy great food, minus the calories, in the simplest way.”
Scott® Calorie Light Premium Towel is tested by an independent party, and found to reduce calorie intake from fat by an average of 25%* just using 3 sheets of Scott® Calorie Light kitchen towel to soak up the excess oil from foods like fried chicken before serving. It is made with revolutionary Fiber-Tech technology, and from 100% natural pulp in a thicker weave to support superior oil absorbency. The towel is also infused with green tea extract, an ingredient that is long known and used for fat reduction.
