  • Publication number: 20090092732
    Abstract: A material to be extracted and an edible fat are introduced into an extractor equipped with a device for collecting stream and gases, such as a condenser. The contents are heated, and the resultant extract is cooled. The distillate collected with the condenser during heating is returned to the extractor. Alternatively, the distillate is further extracted with an edible oil and/or fat and the extract obtained by the distillate extraction with the oil and/or fat is returned to the extractor. Thus, an oil-based processed flavor with a cooked note is produced. This oil-based processed flavor with a cooked note is added to or incorporated in a food or beverage as it is or, if necessary, after having been diluted, emulsified, powdered, or otherwise treated.

  • Publication number: 20040133834
    Abstract: A test of an LSI device under test (20) including a physical layer section (21) which has a high-speed interface function is performed. An LSI device test unit (1) including a reference LSI device (10) which has already been confirmed as being non-defective is placed on a test board (2), and high-speed pins of the LSI devices (10, 20) are connected to each other. An LSI tester (3) accesses logical layer sections (12, 22) at a low speed to control a high-speed communication between physical layer sections (11, 21) and read received data, and determines whether or not the LSI device under test (20) is defective.
