  • Patent number: 10349666
    Abstract: The present invention relates to confectionery products which are shelf-stable and are suitable for quiescent freezing to form frozen confectionery products. In particular, the invention is concerned with unfrozen packaged confections comprising a coagulated protein system which contributes to the stability of the confections in particular when stored at room or chilled temperatures. A method of producing such confectionery products and the products obtainable from the method are also part of the present invention. The use of the products for providing frozen desserts also forms part of the invention.

  • Patent number: 10292405
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for producing frozen confectionery products. In particular, the invention is concerned with a method which contributes to the improvement of textural and sensorial attributes of the confections obtained thereof, in particular of products based on lower fat formulations. The method includes the use of controlled heat (between 90° C. and 140° C. for 5 seconds to 30 minutes) on an acidified ice confection mix (pH between 5.6 and 6.5) to at least partially form a coagulated protein system including casein whey protein. Such a protein system is used according to the invention in frozen confection prepared by conventional freezing alone or combined with low temperature freezing wherein it improves the microstructure and stability on frozen products.

  • Patent number: 10219526
    Abstract: The present invention relates to frozen aerated products including products manufactured by low-temperature extrusion with superior creaminess. In particular, the invention is concerned with a partially coagulated protein system induced by controlled coagulation of milk protein which imparts outstanding sensory attributes on frozen confectionery including low-temperature extruded frozen products, in particular when containing low fat. A method of producing such frozen aerated confectionery product and the products obtainable from the method are also part of the present invention.
