  • Publication number: 20190208808
    Abstract: A method for making a shredded product having a marbled surface and the resulting product are provided. The method includes partially cooking an uncooked mass in a first cooking process to form a partially cooked mass and then combining the partially cooked mass with an inclusion component to form an inclusion mass. The inclusion mass is cooked in a second cooking process to form a fully cooked mass. The material is shredded to form continuous net-like sheets having a marbled appearance defined by a first portion of the continuous net-like sheets with the low or non-glutenous material having a first overall color and a second portion of the continuous net-like sheets with the inclusion component having a second overall color different from the first overall color.

  • Patent number: 9820499
    Abstract: A method of preparing a whole grain rice shredded product is provided. The method includes the steps of combining water and a whole grain rice component, the whole grain rice component comprising at least about 75% by weight rice, or up to about 100% by weight rice, cooking the whole grain rice component and water to form a cooked whole grain rice material, cooling the cooked whole grain rice material, tempering the cooked whole grain rice material for less than about 90 minutes to form a tempered whole grain rice material, and shredding the tempered whole grain rice material to form continuous net-like sheets of the whole grain rice shredded product.

  • Publication number: 20130011541
    Abstract: A dough sheet for producing thin, baked chips is obtained continuously by compressing a dough sheet to a thickness of less than or equal to about 0.035 inch between counter-rotating gauge rolls while maintaining the surface of each gauge roll at a temperature of about 85° F. to about 95° F. Maintaining the gauge roll surface temperature at about 85° F. to about 95° F. avoids sticking, tearing, and shredding of the thin dough sheet as it is compressed and transferred by the gauge rolls, even at high production rates or line speeds. A rotary cutter is employed to obtain thin, irregularly shaped, scallop-edged snacks in a variety of shapes from a single dough sheet without producing dough scraps between the pieces.
