  • Publication number: 20160144526
    Abstract: A tool useful with a flexible profile molding, for example a window film securement article having a self-adhesive coating. The tool includes a housing, a blade assembly and a cutting plate. The housing defines a cavity. The blade assembly is coupled to the housing and includes a blade disposed within the cavity. The cutting plate is selectively mountable to the housing, and includes a first profile and an optional second profile projecting from opposite faces of a platform. When present, the second profile is different from the first profile. Each profile is configured to retain a flexible profile molding in a flexed cutting condition during a cutting operation. In a first cutting state, the cutting plate is arranged such that the first profile faces the blade. In an optional second cutting state, the second profile faces the blade. The blade can be flat, with the cutting plate profile(s) dictating an arrangement of the flexible profile molding conducive to forming a curved miter cut with the flat blade.

  • Patent number: 8039037
    Abstract: A multi-textured ready-to-eat cereal flake includes a plurality of rice based pellets embedded in a cooked cereal grain. The plurality of rice pellets are formed from a rice product and have a first moisture content. A cooked cereal grain mixture is then formed and has a second moisture content that is greater than the first moisture content of the rice pellets. The plurality of rice pellets are then embedded within the cooked cereal grain mixture to create a multicomponent mixture. A multicomponent pellet is formed from the multicomponent mixture. The multicomponent pellet is then formed into a flake. The flake is heated to create a multi-textured flake. Based on the moisture differential between the cooked cereal grain and the plurality of rice pellets, the plurality of rice pellets expand to create a blistered appearance on the multi-textured flake.

  • Publication number: 20050281926
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for applying an oil mixture containing marine oils to food products in a manner that permits the marine oils to remain stable for extended periods of time. The marine oils of particular interest include the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) (20:5w-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (22:6w-3). Using the disclosed method these fatty acids can be applied to a wide variety of food products with no change in the organoleptic properties after extended storage. The disclosed method makes it possible to bring the health benefits of these fatty acids to a wider variety of food products than previously possible.
