  • Publication number: 20130273209
    Abstract: An expandable starch-based component is extruded through a random extruder together with a colored component having a color unlike that of said starch-based component. The starch-based component may include cereal grains such as rice or corn meal or components derived therefrom. The colored component may include colored starches such as blue corn meal; seeds; and/or micropellets made from fine particle ingredients. When combined, the components form a color-comprising mixture that can be extruded into colored or colorful collets. The color-comprising mixture comprises between about 2% to about 10% colored component. The produced bi-colored collets may then be cooked, optionally seasoned and packaged for consumption.

  • Patent number: 8367143
    Abstract: Improved granola and granola products containing chocolate and their methods of preparation are provided. The methods include adding chilled chocolate containing dextrose to granola ingredients prior to the addition of a sugar binder formulated to perform as required at about 29-32° C. (85-90° F.) or colder. The methods include baking granola containing chocolate, cooling and packaging granola products such as breakfast cereals and granola bars. By using chilled chocolate and the sugar binder formulated for this method the problems of chocolate separation, smearing and off-flavors can be avoided in granola products containing chocolate.

  • Patent number: 8337880
    Abstract: The invention relates to a tri-enzyme hydrolysis method for preparing an oligo-saccharide enhanced oat-based drink product useful in lowering cholesterol, triglyceride, blood sugar and improving gastrointestinal function which comprises not only oat ?-glucan and but also a higher amount of isomalto-oligosacchride. In accordance with the invention, whole grains of oats are micronized to an average particle size of 100 microns prior to enzyme treatments, and a product of creamy milk-like texture is obtained without filtration so that nutrients of the whole grains of oats are retained. This invention enhances the value of oat-based processing to yield additional health-associated content and illness (such as hyperlipidaemia and hyperglycemia) prevention efficacy that are beyond the potential of oats per se.

    Abstract: One or more embodiments of the present invention describe a novel use of capsanthin and/or fatty-acyl ester of capsanthin to inhibit both the differentiation of pre-adipocytes to adipocytes and the accumulation of fat in the adipocytes. One or more embodiments of the present invention are based on findings that capsanthin contained in some natural products such as red pepper, paprika, bell pepper, etc. have anti-adipogenic activity by inhibiting both the differentiation of pre-adipocyte into adipocyte and the accumulation of fat in adipocytes, Therefore, this findings provide a functional food and a pharmaceutical composition wherein capsanthins and the extract of any natural products containing the same components are included in the functional food and the pharmaceutical composition, to offer obesity prevention and/or treatment effects.
