ConAgra introduces new version of Pam cooking spray
OMAHA, Neb. — A new version of ConAgra Foods’ Pam cooking spray is designed to be calorie-free and leave less residue, the company said.
The food company said that the new Pam leaves up to 99% less residue and is available in three varieties: original, baking and butter.
"We’re excited to introduce the new Pam cooking sprays, which prevent residue better than leading bargain brands of cooking sprays and still provide superior no-stick results," ConAgra Foods Pam brand director Anne-Michele Harrington said. "It’s the perfect solution to help keep residue off cookware to avoid tough cleanup jobs."
