New products
feed Shintani
diet regimen

The Shintani food empire expands once again, this time to a salad dressing and soup mix, being sold through Zippy's restaurants to benefit the Hawaii Health Foundation and Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center.

Dr. Terry Shintani is creator of the Hawaii Diet, developed to help seriously overweight native Hawaiians slim down and control chronic illnesses such as diabetes by returning to ancient eating habits involving whole foods and few meat or dairy products.

Last year, Zippy's began offering "Shintani Cuisine," dishes from the Hawaii Diet menu, both as plate lunches and in family-size home-replacement meals.

Now available: Oriental Dressing, a gingery soy vinaigrette (12 ounces for $5); and Almost Chicken Broth Mix, a powdered mix that will make 32 ounces of fat-free vegetarian stock ($6).

They are sold at Zippy's To Go counters in Kapolei, Kahala, Vineyard, Pearlridge and Waipio.

Also new: Whole Wheat Vegetarian Tacos, Whole Wheat Burrito Combo and Soba Noodles with Oriental Vegetables, recently added to the Shintani Cuisine menu at Zippy's.
