  • Patent number: 10827766
    Abstract: The present invention provides a high-moisture-content gummi candy as a novel fruity confection, including a gummi candy body having a moisture value of not lower than 20% by weight, a pH of not higher than 4.0, and a water activity value of not higher than 0.86 and a collagen casing coating and encapsulating the gummi candy body. Even with a high moisture content, namely, even with a moisture value of the gummi candy body as high as not lower than 20% by weight, the high-moisture-content gummi candy is remarkably reduced in syneresis, surface melting, stickiness, and the like, has an excellent shape retention ability, has a fresh flavor and an elastic texture, and is suitable for distribution at normal temperature.

  • Publication number: 20200278290
    Abstract: A tablet measuring apparatus has a stainless steel housing, which contains a measuring section having a conveyance disk and an optical sensor, a tablet feeding section for feeding a tablet to the measuring section, and a recovery section for returning the tablet having undergone a measurement process to a tablet coating apparatus. The optical sensor can be adjusted in its height position by a height adjusting mechanism so that the optical sensor and the tablet can be separated from each other at a predetermined distance. The tablet is sucked to and conveyed by the conveyance disk and, during the conveyance, physical properties of the tablet are measured in a non-contact manner by the optical sensor. Out-of-spec tablets are discharged from a defective product discharging section, while in-spec tablets are fed back to the tablet coating apparatus through the recovery section.
