  • Publication number: 20100196551
    Abstract: A process for making a frozen confectionery product by providing a mold with closed and opened ends in a refrigerated environment, filling the mold with a liquid mix to form a shell, removing non-solidified liquid mix from the mold, pressure-filling the shell in the mold with a frozen confection, inserting a stick in the frozen confection, removing the product from the mold and packing the resulting product. In such process, inclusions may be homogeneously distributed in the liquid mix or in the frozen confection or can be accumulated on the top of the frozen confection after filling the mold. The resulting product, a molded ice confectionery stick bar, is also an embodiment of the invention.

  • Patent number: 7658958
    Abstract: The present invention concerns an apparatus and a method for producing ice confection comprising mold cavities arranged on lamellae disposed in an endless belt along which are arranged process means for the production of the ice confection by conveying the lamellae between the process means, wherein the apparatus comprises an uneven number of lamellae and the process means are arranged along the belt in such a way, that the ice confection production process may be completed by two full circulations of one lamella on the belt. Due to the uneven number of lamellae a specific lamella will change stop position for each circulation. Hereby, a number of advantages are obtained through an optimal utilization of the lower lamella sequence, such that the shortest possible apparatus is obtained.

  • Publication number: 20100009050
    Abstract: A food product is prepared by mixing at least one egg and cheese with other ingredients, such as bell pepper, chili pepper, onion, mushroom, and meat, to form an omelet mixture. The omelet mixture is cooked to produce an omelet that preferably is formed into a generally semicircular shape. The formed omelet then is frozen. A round piece of pita pocket bread is prepared and baked using a conventional recipe. Then the baked pita pocket bread is cut in half diametrically and opened. The frozen omelet is inserted into the into the opened pita pocket bread and the combination is frozen. Freezing the omelet prior to insertion into the unfrozen opened pita pocket bread facilitates that insertion.
