  • Patent number: 9833004
    Abstract: A cereal flour composition is made by subjecting a mixture to a heating treatment, the mixture including: a cereal flour; and 0.2-10 parts by mass of an emulsifier with respect to 100 parts by mass of the cereal flour. Preferably, the emulsifier is a monoglycerol fatty acid ester or lecithin. Preferably, the heating treatment is performed for 2 seconds to 3 minutes at a mixture temperature of 80 to 120° C. Preferably, the heating treatment is a heat-moisture treatment using saturated water vapor. A process for producing the cereal flour composition involves a heating step of directly applying saturated water vapor to the mixture including a cereal flour and an emulsifier, and heating the mixture, wherein the heating step is performed by using a production device including: a transporting path that transports an introduced raw material to an outlet; and a mechanism that introduces saturated water vapor into the transporting path.

  • Patent number: 9737085
    Abstract: A multi-component package is provided which enables simultaneous heat cooking of a food product which does not require a long cooking time and a food product which requires a longer cooking time. The multi-component package includes a lower container including a bottomed, lower container main body for containing a first food product. The container further includes an upper container including an upper container main body for containing a second filled food product. A flange of the lower container main body and a flange of the upper container main body are engaged with each other so that the lower container and the upper container are combined integrally. A vapor vent is provided in a lower container lid material, whereby water vapor generated upon heating of the first food product heats the second food product in the upper container.
