  • Publication number: 20220126499
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and method for in-mould labelling of articles. In particular, the present invention pertains to a system and method for in-mould labelling of multiple labels on two or more adjacent surfaces of a container (102) with polygonal cross-section. The present invention provides a combination of mould formation coupled with a design for magazine and robotic arm (606) to enable simultaneous application of multiple in-mould labels across multiple surfaces of a polygonal container (102) with minimal dead space between the labels. Simultaneous application of multiple labels and the preform inside the mould opening as per the present invention reduces cycle time and increases output efficiency.

  • Patent number: 11306330
    Abstract: The invention is directed to an engineered yeast including an exogenous nucleic acid encoding a glucoamylase comprising SEQ ID NO:1 and SEQ ID NO:4, or a variant thereof. The engineered yeast are able to provide glucoamylase into a fermentation media and cause degradation of starch material generating glucose for fermentation to a desired bioproduct, such as ethanol. High titers of bioproduct (e.g., 70 g/kg of ethanol) can be achieved, along with low residual glucose levels. Further the yeast exhibit good growth and bioproduct product at temperatures of 32° C. or greater.

  • Publication number: 20220061353
    Abstract: A composition and method of preparing a pea protein hydrolysate includes obtaining a pea protein composition, adding a fungal protease to the pea protein composition, and hydrolyzing the pea protein composition to a degree of hydrolysis of about 4% or greater to obtain a pea protein hydrolysate. In an example, the degree of hydrolysis can range from about 4% to about 25% at a pH ranging from about 5 to about 7.5 and at a temperature ranging from about 30° C. to about 60° C. The resulting pea protein hydrolysate has a solubility of at least 30% at pH 3.4, a viscosity of at least 65 cPs at pH 3.4, a dispersibility of at least 115 seconds at about neutral H, and a suspendability of at least 1.5 TSI Global at pH 3.4.

  • Publication number: 20220061590
    Abstract: A characteristic of edible oil used for frying operations may be determined using a sensor such as a spectrometer or capacitive sensor. Other attributes indicative of a prior, present, or future frying operations can be specified, and an analytical model indicative of a composite aging parameter can be applied using one or more attributes along with data obtained from the sensor indicative of oil degradation. Application of the analytical model may be used to trigger various actions relating to oil management, such as ranging from automatically generating a notification to an operator or automatically initiating oil management operations such as top-off, oil removal, or oil replacement in a frying apparatus.

  • Publication number: 20220046953
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed relate to modified triglyceride including omega-3 fatty acid residue, structured fat blends including the same, food and fish feeds including the same, and methods of making any of the foregoing. A modified triglyceride includes an omega-3 fatty acid residue and a saturated fatty acid residue. A structured fat blend including the modified triglyceride can be a product of interesterification of a starting material triglyceride including an omega-3 fatty acid residue and a highly saturated triglyceride. When used in a fish feed, the modified triglyceride can experience less leakage in water than the starting material triglyceride including the omega-3 fatty acid residue.

  • Patent number: 11246329
    Abstract: Provided are methods of manufacturing a cooked egg product having irregular shaped egg curds similar in shape, size, and mouthfeel to that of freshly cooked scrambled eggs. Liquid egg product is optionally first preheated then transferred to a belt oven and cooked to form a layer of cooked egg product. The layer of cooked egg product is then transported through an agitator, which initially breaks down the layer of cooked egg product, and subsequently is passed through a forming plate to shape the cooked egg product into irregular shaped egg curds similar in appearance to that of freshly cooked scrambled eggs. This process allows for a simplified ingredient deck and reduces the number of fines present in the final product.
