  • Publication number: 20070128322
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for improving the solubility of non-starch polysaccharides of a vegetable material. The products prepared by the method and the use of the products are also included in the scope of the invention. The method comprises crushing of the material by mechanical energy to form particles, with at least a major portion of the cells containing non-starch polysaccharides in the material being damaged. Preferably, the non-starch polysaccharides end up in particles as produced by crushing to form particles smaller than that of the initial cell containing these polysaccharides in the material. Disruption of the cells allows effective interaction between the dissolving medium and the polysaccharides to be dissolved, appearing as increased solubility. The material crushing can be performed under the joint effect of pressure, heat and shearing forces.

  • Patent number: 6304875
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of handling the event recordings in a service database system. The database contains stored measurement tables (MT) which include consecutive rows (Ri). So that the activation values of individual objects can be changed or individual objects can be added/deleted at any time causing as little interference as possible to the measurement, the value of the activation parameter of the measurement object is stored on the row and the zeroing of the counter groups of the measurement object is performed during the recording and zeroing phase of the counters so that for each counter group of the measurement object the first processing after the activation of the measurement object in question is forced to be such that the recording of the counter group is blocked, but the zeroing of the counter group is allowed.
