Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection consists of Weast biographical material and a significant assortment of photos and slides that document Tillie Lewis Foods and Weast's interest in Spanish Missions.
Dr. Weast and his wife Elsie are credited with developing and patenting low-calorie and low-sugar diet foods in the early 1950s while working for Tillie Lewis Foods. They pioneered canned diabetic foods, low salt vegetables, low cholesterol eggs, low cholesterol pancake mix, low calorie carbonated beverages, and new processes for canning.
