  • Publication number: 20220193162
    Abstract: Disclosed is a composition comprising a combination of at least one flavor compound and a taste-modulating portion of a filamentous fungus mycelial aqueous culture, e.g. a mycelia is from a Cordyceps spp, where the flavor compound is a combination and sodium chloride and potassium chloride and when combined with food, beverage or other product, reduces metallic and/or bitter taste resulting from the presence of KCl and provides an extended “salt” flavor perception in the product. The flavor compound can also include at where the at least one flavor compound is a bitterness blocker or a bitterness masker, wherein the combination is capable of synergistically reducing bitter tastes or reducing aftertastes of a food, beverage, or other product. Methods to enhance the taste of a food, beverage or other product using the flavor compounds and taste-modifying portions of a filamentous fungus are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20220030911
    Abstract: Provided is a food composition which include a myceliated high-protein food product and methods to make such compositions, which are mixtures of myceliated high-protein food products and other edible materials. A food composition includes dairy alternative products, ready to mix beverages and beverage bases; extruded and extruded/puffed products; sheeted baked goods; meat analogs and extenders; baked goods and baking mixes; granola; and soups/soup bases. Food compositions also include texturized plant protein which can be used for making meat-structured plant protein meat analog or meat extender products. The food compositions have reduced undesirable flavors and reduced undesirable aromas due to use of myceliated high-protein food products as compared to use of similar high-protein material that is not myceliated.

  • Publication number: 20210030044
    Abstract: A method enhancing the taste of a food product, which includes the steps of culturing a mycelial liquid tissue culture in a media, collecting a extracellular portion of the mycelial aqueous culture, e.g., the extracellular fluid of the mycelial liquid aqueous culture, and adding the collected extracellular portion fluid to a food product in an amount sufficient to enhance the food product's taste. The extracellular portion of the mycelial aqueous culture may include C. sinensis, and the culture step may be carried out for between about one and sixty days. The food products include foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and nutraceuticals and dairy alternative products, beverages and beverage bases, extruded and extruded/puffed products, meat imitations and extenders, baked goods and baking mixes, granola products, bar products, smoothies and juices, and soups and soup bases.

  • Patent number: 9512205
    Abstract: The characterization and isolation of F20G75, F20G76 and F20G77, anti-PA monoclonal antibodies which also have neutralizing activities is described. The monoclonal antibodies may be used as a pharmaceutical composition for treating individuals suspected of or at risk of or having a Bacillus anthracis infection. The monoclonal antibodies bind to a specific region comprising amino acids 311-316 of PA, ASFFDI or a larger fragment comprising amino acids 301-330 of PA, SEVHGNAEVHASFFDIGSSVSAGFSNSNSS. Vaccines comprising these peptides may be used to immunize individuals against Bacillus anthracis infection.

  • Patent number: 8300266
    Abstract: A method evaluates image quality in an ink printing system and generates data values for altering the operation of the ink printing system. The method includes generating an ink image on an ink image receiving member that corresponds to a digital image stored in the ink printing system, generating a scanned image signal corresponding to the ink image, generating firing signal waveform adjustments and image data adjustments with reference to the scanned image signal corresponding to the ink image, and operating a printhead in an ink imaging system with reference to the firing signal waveform adjustments and the image data adjustments.
