  • Publication number: 20220167641
    Abstract: This invention addresses the problem of suppressing deterioration in the flavor of ice cream containing PUFAs over time. This invention was arrived at by discovering that in ice cream containing DHA and/or EPA, abnormal flavors which arise during low-temperature storage can be effectively suppressed when a water phase containing polyphenols is micro-dispersed at 500 nm or less in an oil or fat containing DHA and/or EPA.

  • Publication number: 20220079181
    Abstract: The present invention addresses the problem of providing a method for producing a flavor oil having a burnt cheese flavor, said flavor oil being capable of imparting a roasted cheese-like fragrant flavor or enhancing a cheese flavor when just used in cooking. The present inventor found that a flavor oil having a fragrant burnt cheese flavor can be obtained by a production method that comprises heating an oil in the presence of 3-20 mass %, relative to the oil, of a starting material derived from cheese. In particular, a stronger and better flavor could be obtained by using a cheese powder and conducting the heating in a reaction system purged with an inert gas.

  • Patent number: 11090282
    Abstract: Oxidation stability is improved and a long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid-containing fat with a good flavor is obtained with a method for manufacturing a long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid-containing fat with a moisture content of 3 weight % or less, the method comprising a step for treatment by contact with rosemary. Consequently, it is possible to limit the generation of reversion flavor, unpleasant odors, and peroxides that have health-harming effects over long periods and to provide a highly healthy long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid-containing fat at less cost than in the past. By adding a relatively small amount of an antioxidant substance, oxidation stability can be further improved.

  • Patent number: 11051530
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a chocolate-like food containing a highly unsaturated fatty acid-containing fat or oil, and the objective of the present invention is to provide such a chocolate-like food that is suppressed in change in the flavor over time. The present invention is able to suppress change in the flavor over time of a chocolate-like food containing a highly unsaturated fatty acid-containing fat or oil by adjusting the pH thereof to a value within a predetermined range. It is preferable to use a highly unsaturated fatty acid-containing fat or oil which has been subjected to antioxidation treatment. It is preferable that the antioxidation treatment is carried out by dispersing water phases, in each of which a predetermined amount of a water-soluble antioxidant is dissolved, in the highly unsaturated fatty acid-containing fat or oil such that the water phases have particle diameters of 300 nm or less.
