    Abstract: Stabilized whole grain flours having a fine particle size and which exhibit good baking functionality are produced with high throughput using two bran and germ fractions and an endosperm fraction. One bran and germ fraction is a coarse fraction which is subjected to two stage grinding, but the second bran and germ fraction is a low ash, fine bran and germ fraction which is sufficiently fine so that it does not need to be subjected to grinding thereby reducing starch damage and increasing production with reduced grinding equipment load. Portions of the coarse bran and germ fraction which are ground in the first grinding stage to a sufficient fineness are separated out and not subjected to additional grinding further reducing starch damage and increasing production. The bran and germ fractions may be combined, subjected to stabilization, and combined with the endosperm fraction to obtain a stabilized whole grain flour.

Additionally the grain has can have a relatively high ? glucan content. The structure of the starch may also be altered in a number of ways which can be characterised by having a low gelatinsation temperature but with reduced swelling. The viscosity of gelatinised starch of the starch is also reduced. There is a chain length distribution of the amylopectin content and a low crystallinity of the starch. The starch is also characterised by having high levels of lipid associated starch exhibiting very high levels of V form starch crystallinity. The dietary fibre content of the starch is high. This has desirable dietary and food processing characteristics.

  • Publication number: 20120258229
    Abstract: A pizza is prepared while it is constructed using a novel process and device. Dough is placed onto a thermal mass, followed by the use of a handheld very high heat source to sear the top surface of the dough. As the pizza dough remains in contact and continues to bake on the thermal mass, toppings are added. The toppings and dough can be selectively seared with the handheld device, and/or allowed to temper with or without the aid of a lid. The lid has a low profile and flat top and creates a minimal cooking volume when placed over the thermal mass. The searing occurs in sections and allows the pizza cook to selectively cook, char, comingle and caramelize the toppings and dough of the pizza.
