  • Patent number: 10899509
    Abstract: Described herein is a glass bottle configured to improve the mechanics of liquid flow and prevent drip initiation. Additionally, the glass bottle eliminates dripping during pouring to enable drip-free pouring. The dripping is prevented over a full range of pouring angles, which vary depending on the amount of liquid held in the glass bottle. A method of making the glass bottle and a method of enabling drip-free pouring using the glass bottle are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210017481
    Abstract: A gelled biological growth medium in a culture container, as well as kits and methods of producing the growth medium, utilize gelling of a liquid growth medium containing low methoxyl pectin on a film of calcium salt deposited on a growth surface of the culture container. The salt acts as a trigger for gelation and is conveniently deposited on the walls by evaporation of methanol or another volatile solvent.

  • Publication number: 20200281997
    Abstract: Methods of improving mammalian carbohydrate metabolism and treating, preventing, or halting the progression of type 2 diabetes mellitus involve the consumption of a nutritional composition containing fruit or vegetable pomace. The pomace is produced from native plant tissue and contains a mixture of soluble and insoluble fiber. Periodic consumption of the composition normalizes blood glucose concentration and controls body weight.

  • Patent number: 10278405
    Abstract: The present invention concerns compositions and methods relating to the addition and use of par-baked and milled coffee beans in food products, beverages, and dietary supplements. Par-baked and milled coffee beans are a novel alternative to more costly chlorogenic acid extracts, and are edible and palatable as a food ingredient. The ingredient is prepared from the entire Coffea robusta or arabica green coffee bean and provides substantially increased amounts of dietary chlorogenic acid antioxidants compared to roasted beans. When the green coffee bean is appropriately par-baked at a temperature significantly lower than coffee roasting temperatures, the bean retains significant moisture, yet becomes embrittled, enabling milling to produce fine and beneficially hydrophilic particles, without any significant loss of bioactive chlorogenic acid and without significant pyrolysis occurring.

  • Patent number: 9491955
    Abstract: Nutritional fat or oil-based compositions for increasing HDL cholesterol, decreasing total cholesterol (TC), LDL cholesterol and decreasing the LDL/HDL cholesterol ratio in human plasma are described. The compositions can advantageously include at least 10% of myristic acid and/or lauric acid in which at least 3% of said fatty acid composition is myristic acid and at least 3% is lauric acid; in some cases at least 1% by weight myristic acid and/or lauric acid is esterified at the sn-2 position in triglyceride molecules. The compositions also include between 5% and 40% by weight linoleic acid, and typically further include at least 10% by weight monounsaturated fatty acids and between 15% and 55% by weight total saturated fatty acids. The sum of weight percentages for saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids equals 100%. In desirable cases, the composition is substantially cholesterol-free.
