  • Publication number: 20220335537
    Abstract: An electronic receipt system includes a commodity sales data processing apparatus, an electronic receipt server, and a portable terminal. The commodity sales data processing apparatus receives an operation to issue an electronic receipt; when receiving the operation, reads a code that is displayed on the portable terminal; when reading the code; generates detail data of electronic receipt information; and sends the code and the detail data of electronic receipt information to the electronic receipt server. The electronic receipt server receives the code and the detail data of electronic receipt information; and stores the code and the detail data of electronic receipt information in a storage section in association with each other. The portable terminal receives an input of the code; receives, from the storage section, electronic receipt information associated with the code received; and displays thereon the electronic receipt information received.

  • Patent number: 11459167
    Abstract: A pouch container generating hydrogen water is provided. A beverage containing at least water and a hydrogen generating substance that reacts with water to generate hydrogen gas are contained in a pouch container that is sealed. Even when hydrogen in a gas form leaks from a sealed part or the like of the pouch container to the outside, new hydrogen gas is generated by the reaction of the water and the hydrogen generating substance in the pouch container. Hydrogen water having sufficient hydrogen gas dissolved therein can be provided even after the long-term preservation. For example, the hydrogen generating substance may be contained in a straw or may be kneaded into an exterior sheet material.
