  • Patent number: 6589328
    Abstract: The invention provides sponges (foams) produced from hydrocolloids by the expansion of gels of these. The foams have properties which can be varied, such as water absorption, biodegradibility, pore size and structure. Edible products can be produced which may contain an edible plasticizer, a sugar or sugar substitute and possibly also a flavoring agent or taste enhancer. The novel sponges are produced by preparing a gel of a hydrocolloid, and either sealing it in a closed vessel with a liquid of similar composition, pressurizing the vessel and abruptly releasing the pressure, followed by freeze drying, or by incorporating in such a gel a suitable microorganism, such as a yeast and inducing fermentation in the presence of a suitable nutrient medium, so that the carbon dioxide formed results in the expansion and foam formation, which is processed to the final product. The sponges-foams of the invention are such, that the initial network of the gel is maintained.

  • Publication number: 20020011181
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a co-crystallized product and a method of making the product. The product comprises a polyol and a hydrogenated maltodextrin that have been co-crystallized together. The co-crystallization of polyols and hydrogenated maltodextrin according to the invention provides a sweetener product that is sucrose-free, yet has a reduced sensory cooling effect compared to the original polyol(s). The reduced sensory cooling effect is due to an increase of the heat of solution that is observed when polyols are co-crystallized with hydrogenated maltodextrin. Because the product of the invention is a sucrose-free sweetener that does not demonstrate the strong sensory cooling effect typically found with polyol sweeteners, the invention has a wide variety of applications which previously are not available for polyol sweeteners.
