    Abstract: To provide a gene that controls the deep rooting of a plant, a transgenic plant introduced with the gene, a method for controlling the deep rooting of a plant using the gene, and such, high-resolution linkage analysis was performed for a genetic locus (Dro1 locus) capable of controlling the deep rooting of a plant, which was detected between a shallow-rooted rice cultivar IR64 and a deep-rooted rice cultivar Kinandang Patong in a large-scale segregating population. As a result, it was revealed that the gene region of Dro1 is located in a region of 6.0 kbp sandwiched between Dro1-INDEL09, which is an InDel marker, and Dro1-CAPS05, which is a CAPS marker. Furthermore, it was confirmed that a transgenic plant transformed with the Kinandang Patong-type Dro1 gene shows a significantly high ratio of deep rooting. It was also confirmed that a plant having the Kinandang Patong-type Dro1 gene is resistant to drought.

  • Patent number: 8309153
    Abstract: Shredded whole grain products, such as ready-to-eat cereals, and sweet and savory snacks, such as whole grain shredded corn chips are continuously produced by pelletizing agglomerates of cooked, tempered, whole cereal grain particles. Cooked whole grains, such as corn and other non-gluten or low-gluten containing grains have a tendency to become hard and rubbery after cooking during the cooling and tempering process. The pelletization results in the production of whole grain pellets having a soft, pliable texture, which are shreddable into continuous net-like sheets on a mass production basis. The pelletizing may be at a pressure of about 200 psig to about 600 psig, preferably from about 400 psig to about 500 psig. The pelletizing temperature may be controlled to provide a pellet temperature of about 80° F. to about 135° F., preferably from about 90° F. to about 110° F., upon exiting the pelletizer.

    Abstract: A continuous oil fryer used to fry food slices, such as potato chips, having an internal oil stripping capability. The fryer accumulates the steam produced by the frying process in a hood and utilizes such steam, after superheating the steam by passing it through a heat exchanger, to strip oil from product immediately upon removal from the hot oil bath by passing the superheated steam through a product bed while on an output conveyor. The superheated steam removes oil from the product on the output conveyor without increasing the moisture level of the product.

The process comprises a step of contacting the oil or fat to a carboxymethyl cellulose or an ion exchange resin. The carboxymethyl cellulose can be a Blanose® cellulose gum and the resin can be a cationic resin. A deodorized vegetable oil or fat and a food product made there from is described. The food product can be an infant formula. It exhibits low levels of bound MCPD and/or low level of bound 3-MCPD. In one embodiment the oil or fat has a reduced level of free fatty acid as well as a limpid aspect and no off-flavors.

  • Publication number: 20120114828
    Abstract: The present application relates to a method of preparing a beer or beer-like beverage by adding a Post Fermenting Optimizer (PFO) in form of an infusion of roasted malt or a distillate thereof after fermentation. This addition of PFO provides the beer or beer-like beverage with additional body, base flavour and/or top notes. The present invention relates also to the PFO infusion itself, its distillate, the methods for preparing them and their use for reducing staling during beer or beer-type product shelf-life.

  • Patent number: 8173193
    Abstract: A stabilized bran component and a stabilized whole grain flour containing the component are produced by subjecting a bran-enriched coarse fraction which contains bran, germ and starch to grinding or milling to reduce grittiness of the coarse fraction without substantially damaging the starch due to abrasion. The coarse fraction may be stabilized by heating to substantially reduce the lipase and lipoxygenase activity of the coarse fraction without substantial gelatinization of the starch. High levels of natural antioxidants and vitamins are retained while avoiding substantial acrylamide formation during the stabilization. The stabilized coarse fraction or stabilized bran component may be combined with a fine fraction which contains predominantly endosperm to obtain a stabilized whole grain flour. The stabilized whole grain flours and the stabilized bran component exhibit extended shelf life and may be used for making baked goods, such as cookies, with desirable oven spread, and a non-gritty mouthfeel.

  • Publication number: 20120100248
    Abstract: Disclosed are nutritional compositions comprising a synergistic combination of cereal beta-glucans, including oat and or barley beta-glucans and Salacia extract, including Salacia oblonga, that are particularly useful in controlling the blood glucose response in a diabetic or other appropriate individual. The nutritional compositions are especially useful when formulated in powder form and then reconstituted with an appropriate liquid or sprinkled onto food during a meal, to thus control the postprandial blood glucose response to that meal.

  • Publication number: 20120070535
    Abstract: The aim of the invention is firstly to dry the wort necessary for beer production and subsequently to re-dissolve the above for the further processing, in particular, the fermentation. According to the invention, the application of fluid bed technology is particularly suitable for the production of dried wort, in particular fluid-bed drying and fluid-bed coating. The advantage of said method for the production of granulates is that no loss of quality in the wort occurs during suitable temperature changes during the drying. The granulate can thus be coated with one or several further coatings, in particular with further flavourings. Above all flavourings can be encapsulated within the dried wort, such that the above is not lost on storage and possible transport.

  • Publication number: 20120064207
    Abstract: A food cooking method and a device in which a combustion chamber and a food cooking vessel are separated by a surface having fine holes or slits, and a fuel or a substance which gives off an aroma produced in the combustion chamber while the combustion chamber is screened from the atmosphere, such that heat and aroma are transmitted to the food as the aromatic and hot combustion gasses are discharged to the exterior through the food in the food cooking vessel. In the cooking method, flavor is enhanced as a smoky aroma is directly added to the foods in forms of pastes and the foods in a solid phase which is distributed by mixing into a liquid phase or semi-liquid phase. The method also can be used to remove unwanted smells and to cook rice.

  • Publication number: 20120058243
    Abstract: A method for processing barley to make a quick-cooking barley product is described. Barley is pearled to remove hulls, and is then precooked to raise the moisture content and gelatinize starch in a single step. The precooked barley is dried in two stages. The first drying stage causes case hardening of the kernel, while the second stage heats moisture trapped within the kernel to cause steam expulsion from the hardened kernel and final drying of the precooked barley. The resulting dried product is a porous kernel that may be shipped, stored, and easily reconstituted by the end user.
