  • Patent number: 11051530
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a chocolate-like food containing a highly unsaturated fatty acid-containing fat or oil, and the objective of the present invention is to provide such a chocolate-like food that is suppressed in change in the flavor over time. The present invention is able to suppress change in the flavor over time of a chocolate-like food containing a highly unsaturated fatty acid-containing fat or oil by adjusting the pH thereof to a value within a predetermined range. It is preferable to use a highly unsaturated fatty acid-containing fat or oil which has been subjected to antioxidation treatment. It is preferable that the antioxidation treatment is carried out by dispersing water phases, in each of which a predetermined amount of a water-soluble antioxidant is dissolved, in the highly unsaturated fatty acid-containing fat or oil such that the water phases have particle diameters of 300 nm or less.

    Abstract: An apparatus and method for making frozen food products from a fruit puree, i.e. a flowable banana meat or a flowable blend of fruit meat and other edible ingredients. A composition that includes peeled bananas and at least one antioxidant may be mixed in a mixing device at ambient temperature and under less than one atmosphere of pressure, forming the puree. The temperature of the puree is reduced to a semi-frozen state by passing the puree through a heat exchanger. The semi-frozen puree is then formed into food products with a pre-determined volume, shape, and weight by a molding or extrusion process. Sticks, if desired, may be inserted, and the shaped puree is then frozen to solidified cores. The solidified cores may be coated with chocolate and treated with other edible toppings and then packaged.

  • Publication number: 20150017294
    Abstract: Methods and systems of making a meat-based food product, the methods and systems including forming minced meat into a blended form. Methods may include forming minced meat into a blended form. Encasing the blended form, heating the blended form to at least approximately 145° F. to 160° F. Chilling the blended form to at least approximately 40° F. Slicing the chilled blended form into a plurality of slices that have first and second sides spaced apart by a thickness having a range from approximately 0.039 inches to approximately 0.187 inches. Finally, drying the slices in a drying stage by an approximate 1,500 W for approximately 90 seconds to approximately 105 seconds in a dryer to produce dried slices, and moving the dried slices from the dryer stage to a cooling stage, the cooling stage incorporates an ambient air medium passing through the dried slices.

  • Publication number: 20150018435
    Abstract: The present invention includes a solid fat composition that includes an oil having saturated fat and a microbial oil having a long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid and an emulsifier. In particular, the solid fat composition can have high levels of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid and low amounts of emulsifiers. In preferred embodiments, the polyunsaturated oil is an unwinterized microbial oil. The invention also relates to methods for making such compositions and food, nutritional, and pharmaceutical products comprising said compositions. The present invention also includes a microbial oil product prepared by extracting an oil-containing fraction comprising at least one LC-PUFA from a microbial biomass, and treating the fraction by a process of vacuum evaporation, wherein the oil product has not been subject to one or more of a solvent winterization step, a caustic refining process, a chill filtration process, or a bleaching process.

  • Publication number: 20140205722
    Abstract: The invention relates to a composition of solid lipid nanoparticles taking the form of a nano-coating for natural fresh foodstuffs, such as seeds, cereals, fruits or vegetables, preferably fresh fruits and vegetables which are coated by means of fluidization, immersion or spraying. According to the invention, the composition comprises: (a) solid lipids or wax, (b) emulsifying stabilizing agents, and film-forming materials in an aqueous dispersion or solution. The inclusion of a submicronic lipophilic system in aqueous dispersion allows the application of the composition to be easily controlled since it is a fluid system with low viscosity, which is advantageous in that it can be applied easily and uniformly and provides improved coating properties, such as sheen, mechanical strength and gas permeability inter alia.

  • Patent number: 8784913
    Abstract: Use of dried rehydratable food, such as in a dried soup, a dried beverage, a breakfast cereal, a yoghurt and a dried sauce, is widespread. However it has been observed that when the dried components are fruit and/or vegetable, the components, on rehydration, do not resemble the fruit and/or vegetable before desiccation. That is to say they no longer have a fresh appearance but are discoloured and lack firmness. This transformation is due to cellular damage which occurs during desiccation. In particular, it is thought that phospholipid membranes are destabilised by insertion of cellular amphiphiles, phase transition into the gel phase and membrane fusion. This invention seeks to solve the above-mentioned technical problem by providing, amongst other things, a dried rehydratable food which is a fruit, vegetable or part thereof which, on rehydration, has improved appearance, texture and rehydration properties.
