  • Publication number: 20220408745
    Abstract: A solid food is a solid food having a solid form obtained by compression-molding a powder, the solid food including a body having a first face and a second face facing each other back to back. The body is provided with at least one hole penetrating the body from the first face to reach to the second face, and each of the first face, the second face, and an inner surface of the hole is an outer surface harder than an inner part of the body.

  • Publication number: 20220354143
    Abstract: A solid food is a solid food having a solid form obtained by compression molding a powder, in which in a case where a drop test in which the solid food is dropped onto a drop face is repeated until the solid food is broken, the number of times of dropping leading to breakage when a dropping energy density per unit fracture stress EF is 2×10?4 [(J/m2)/(N/m2)] is 3 times or more, the number of times of dropping leading to breakage when EF is 1×10?4 [(J/m2)/(N/m2)] is 10 times or more, and the number of times of dropping leading to breakage when EF is 5×10?5 [(J/m2)/(N/m2)] is more than 30 times, EF being obtained by dividing a dropping energy density in the drop test by a fracture stress of the solid food.

  • Publication number: 20220346431
    Abstract: A solid food is a solid food having a solid form obtained by compression molding and hardening a food powder, in which a specific surface area voxel ratio of the solid food is configured such that an average value A from a surface of the solid food to a depth of 2 mm is smaller than an average value C from a depth of 4 mm from the surface of the solid food to a depth of 6 mm, and a rate of decrease (C?A)/C×100 of the specific surface area voxel ratio obtained by dividing a difference (C?A) between the average value C and the average value A by the average value C is 9.5% or less.

  • Publication number: 20220330566
    Abstract: A method for producing a solid food having a solid form obtained by compression molding a food powder includes: compression molding the food powder to form a compression molded body of the food powder; and performing a hardening treatment on the compression molded body of the food powder, in which the hardening treatment includes placing the compression molded body of the food powder under an environment of a humidity of 100% RH or less and a temperature of higher than 100° C.

  • Publication number: 20220322688
    Abstract: A solid food has a solid form obtained by compression molding a powder. Where a dissolution process from the solid food starting to dissolve until completely dissolving is measured over time on the basis of electric conductivity, times at which a dissolution ratio where electric conductivity at the time of finish of dissolution is 100%, reaches 20%, 63%, and 95% are t20, t63, and t95, and times (sec) at which the dissolution ratio of a reference solid food, formed under conditions in which a difference in weight with the solid food is within ±0.3%, a difference in surface area is within ±2%, a difference in hardness is within ±4%, and a humidification treatment temperature is 100° C. or lower, reaches 20%, 63%, and 95% are t20ref, t63ref, and t95ref, a solubility index (Id) represented by the following Formula (1) is less than 1.

  • Publication number: 20220174971
    Abstract: Provided is a method for producing a compressed body of a powder capable of improving a hardness while suppressing a decrease in production efficiency of the compressed body of the powder. A compressed body 14 of a powder is compression molded by compressing a powder supplied into die holes 18 by a lower punch 31 and an upper punch 32. In the compression molding, a first compression and a second compression following the first compression are performed. In the first compression, the compression is performed at a first compression speed, and in the second compression, the compression is performed at a second compression speed that is lower than the first compression speed.

  • Patent number: 11148107
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to develop a mechanism capable of more effectively performing processing such as emulsification, dispersion, dissolution, atomization, mixing, or stirring on a processing object with fluidity using an atomization device including a rotor-stator type mixer while an inside of a processing tank is maintained in a pressured state, at atmospheric pressure, or in a vacuum state, and occurrence of a negative pressure state on a center side (inner diameter side) of a rotor is actively suppressed or prevented. An atomization device comprises a rotor-stator type mixer in a processing tank. The atomization device performs processing such as emulsification, dispersion, atomization, mixing, or stirring on a processing object with fluidity using the rotor-stator type mixer while an inside of the processing tank is maintained in a pressured state, at atmospheric pressure, or in a vacuum state.
