  • Patent number: 11013358
    Abstract: Disclosed is a food preparation apparatus (100) comprising a food preparation chamber and a pressure chamber (120) for generating steam coupled to the food preparation chamber through a conduit (130), wherein the pressure chamber comprises a heating element (121) for converting water into steam; and the conduit comprises an auto-relief valve (140) arranged to release the steam at a set pressure above atmospheric pressure from the pressure chamber into the food preparation chamber, thereby creating superheated steam in the food preparation chamber by the rapid expansion of the released volume of the above atmospheric pressure (saturated) steam. A method (200) of preparing food in such a food preparation apparatus (100) is also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200260907
    Abstract: A device for cooking a starch-based food item is provided in which there is a drying cycle at a temperature below the gelatinization temperature and a cooking cycle at a temperature above the gelatinization temperature. The drying provides a relative weight drop by a first amount and the cooking provides a further relative weight drop. The weight is monitored during drying and cooking to provide feedback control of the duration of the drying and cooking times. The device and method make healthy food with reduced rapid digestible starch (RDS) and increased resistant starch (RS) content. In this way the glycemic index (GI) of a food item is reduced and the resistant starch is increased, which is beneficial to health especially for diabetes and obese groups.

  • Publication number: 20200054024
    Abstract: A cooking appliance (100) is disclosed comprising a cooking chamber (170), a heating stage (150) for heating a food product within the cooking chamber and a humidity adjustment stage (160) for adjusting the humidity within the cooking chamber. The cooking appliance further comprises a user interface (110) configured to allow a user to specify a texture of said food product and a degree of browning of said food product; and a controller (120) responsive to the user interface and configured to control the heating stage and the humidity adjustment stage in accordance with an algorithm having the user-specified texture of said food product and the user-specified degree of browning of said food product as parameters.

  • Publication number: 20190365147
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a temperature control device comprising a control unit for controlling a heating unit of a food cooking device according to the following control scheme: i) a preheating period for heating up the food to a first food temperature of at most 60° C.; ii) a temperature holding period for holding the food temperature within a temperature range of 30° C. to 70° C. for at least one minute; and iii) a heating period for heating up the food to a second food temperature of at most 100° C. This control scheme ensures that ?-glutamyl hydrolase is not thermally inactivated and thus can hydrolyze polyglutamate forms of folate into monoglutamate forms and that folate bioavailability during cooking processes is enhanced.

  • Patent number: 9253998
    Abstract: The material container disclosed in present application, comprises a cylindrical body with end covers attached to its ends. Multiple holes are distributed across the end covers. A movable sliding rack is located inside the cylindrical body. The axial direction of movable sliding rack coincides with the axial direction of the cylindrical body. The movable sliding rack has at least two hollow columns which axis is in the same direction of the axis of movable sliding rack. Any two neighboring hollow columns are isolated by their walls. Water can be timely added into the cylindrical body through the holes, without damaging material container due to water pressure. Turning around one end cover allows the cylindrical body to be opened for food materials conveniently loading or unloading. It provides quicker loading and unloading for cup or bottle packed materials with the movable sliding rack, utilizing the space inside the cylindrical body efficiently.
