  • Publication number: 20150359248
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a concentrate food composition and the use said food composition for preparing a bouillon, soup, sauce, gravy or seasoned dish. The dissolution or dispersion of the known high-salt food concentrates in water or through a dish may often take several minutes, while a rapid dissolution and dispersion through the dish is of high importance. Therefore, there is a need for a food concentrate that allows high dilution rates while maintaining the taste impact and which food concentrate dissolves relatively rapid in hot water or a hot dish. It has been found that a food concentrate in the form of a gel having a pH lower than 3.5, comprising water, sodium salt and a gelling pectin, dissolves quickly in hot water or a hot dish.

  • Publication number: 20090136637
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of dehydrating a comminuted food product containing at least 30 wt. % of water, the method comprising: (i) comminuting a food product to form a slurry; (ii) contacting the obtained slurry with a pressurised gas to reduce the water content of said slurry by at least 50%, said pressurised gas having a pressure of at least 0.5xPc and a temperature of at least Tc-60° C., wherein Pc represents the critical pressure and Tc represents the critical temperature of the gas, whereby the pressurised gas is dried by removal of water contained therein and the dried pressurised gas thus obtained is recirculated to the slurry, wherein at least 80 wt. %, preferably at least 90 wt. % of the matter removed by the pressurised gas is water, and (iii) separating the pressurised gas from the dehydrated slurry.
