  • Publication number: 20200329720
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a microwave processing method for food made of flour and rice fermented with sourdough and belongs to the technical field of food processing. It comprises: adding a sourdough to the raw material to prepare a steamed cake batter; fermenting the batter under the dielectric constant of 20˜34, the loss factor of 6.3˜9.0, the moisture content of 45˜55% and the water activity of 0.920˜0.980; and using microwave heating to obtain the microwave-steamed cake. Due to the regulating effect of the sourdough fermentation on the dielectric properties of the food material, it solves the problems of hard core, textual firmness and toughness, dryness and weak flavor caused by fast and uneven microwave heating without adding food additives; meanwhile, the sourdough fermentation process is optimized and the DY and additive amount of the sourdough are controlled to obtain the microwave-steamed cake with larger specific volume, lower hardness, more fine and uniform pores and better taste.

  • Publication number: 20200300897
    Abstract: Disclosed is a sensor with compensation circuit for compensating offset by use of a switching circuit. The sensor has two operation modes for generating two output voltages, respectively. Offset is compensated by adding the two output voltages, and magnitude of the offset is calculated by subtracting the two output voltages. A noise threshold is set for checking if the circuit is affected by interference. When the circuit is affected by interference, the adding result of the two output voltages will be larger than the noise threshold, the output data will be hold and not updated, then a reminding signal will be issued to show that the circuit is affected by interference, and the output data flickers on a display unit when the adding result of the two output voltages is larger than the noise threshold for showing the circuit is affected by interference.
