  • Publication number: 20130142903
    Abstract: Rice protein concentrates prepared at low temperature exhibit improved functionality and beneficial physiological benefits, including lowered cholesterol and enhanced lactic acid dehydrogenase activity, without an increase in blood urea nitrogen. The rice protein concentration could be made into a wet dough with comparatively less water than a soy protein concentrate. Use of the rice protein concentrate thus improved processing steps in the formulation of a food article containing the concentrate. The food product advantageously shows an extending shelf life and improved palatable texture.

  • Patent number: 8057485
    Abstract: The present invention provides a surgical specimen retrieval device that allows one-handed use by incorporating a geared spool to amplify take up of a flexible line to close the mouth of the specimen bag after the surgical specimen is deposited in the bag. The retrieval device includes a spool with an attached gear that is rotated by movement of a deployment rod with serrated teeth. A flexible line has a proximal end attached to the spool and the distal end attached to the mouth of the bag. When the deployment reel is moved from an extended position to an inserted position, the spool rotates and pays out flexible line to allow the mouth of the deployed bag to open. Once a specimen is taken and deposited in the bag, the deployment rod is moved from the inserted position toward the extended position. This rod movement rotates the spool to take up the line and close the mouth of the bag.
