  • Patent number: 9347934
    Abstract: The present invention is based on applicants' discovery, disclosed herein, of agonists for the TAS2R receptors TAS2R1, TAS2R4, TAS2R9, TAS2R13, TAS2R14, TAS2R16, TAS2R44, TAS2R46, and TAS2R60. The assignment of agonists to these receptors makes assays for identifying compounds that modulate bitter taste possible. For example, the present invention provides methods of identifying compounds that inhibit the bitter taste due to these agonists. The present invention also provides methods of identifying compounds that selectively inhibit the bitter taste due to these agonists. The present invention further provides methods of identifying compounds that mimic the bitter taste due these agonists. The present invention also provides methods of identifying compounds that enhance the bitter taste due to these agonists.

  • Patent number: 9072309
    Abstract: The present invention is based on the finding that stearin fats, obtainable by dry or solvent fractionation of sunflower high-stearic and high-oleic oils, optionally with seeding with tempered stearin crystals, have a high solid fat content at temperatures higher than 30° C., even higher than cocoa butter or other high saturated tropical fats with a similar disaturated triacylglycerol content due to the presence of disaturated triacylgiycerols rich in stearic acid, and improved melting point due to the presence of arachidic and behenic acids in these disaturated triacylgiycerols, being at the same time healthier that actual fats made from palm, palm kernel and coconut oils, or hydrogenated and trasesterified vegetable oils.

  • Patent number: 9011959
    Abstract: A novel canola protein isolate made predominantly of 2S canola protein and having equal to better solubility properties and improved clarity properties, has an increased proportion of 2S canola protein and a decreased proportion of 7S canola protein. The novel canola protein isolate is formed by heat treatment or isoelectric precipitation of aqueous supernatant from canola protein micelle formation and precipitation, to effect precipitation of 7S protein which is sedimented and removed. Alternatively, the novel canola protein isolate may be derived from a selective membrane procedure in which an aqueous canola protein solution containing 12S, 7S and 2S canola proteins is subjected to a first selective membrane technique to retain 12S and 7S canola proteins in a retentate, which is dried to provide a canola protein isolate consisting predominantly of 7S canola protein, and to permit 2S canola protein to pass through the membrane.

  • Publication number: 20150024105
    Abstract: The present invention concerns compositions and methods relating to the addition and use of par-baked and milled coffee beans in food products, beverages, and dietary supplements. Par-baked and milled coffee beans are a novel alternative to more costly chlorogenic acid extracts, and are edible and palatable as a food ingredient. The ingredient is prepared from the entire Coffea robusta or arabica green coffee bean and provides substantially increased amounts of dietary chlorogenic acid antioxidants compared to roasted beans. When the green coffee bean is appropriately par-baked at a temperature significantly lower than coffee roasting temperatures, the bean retains significant moisture, yet becomes embrittled, enabling milling to produce fine and beneficially hydrophilic particles, without any significant loss of bioactive chlorogenic acid and without significant pyrolysis occurring.

  • Publication number: 20140109262
    Abstract: A method of treating seeds includes piercing a multiplicity of seeds such that shells of a majority of the seeds are pierced, aerating the pierced seeds, and reducing a water content of the pierced seeds. Another method of treating seeds includes placing a bulk quantity of seeds in a container, forming a mass of seeds and liquid in the container, sealing the container to create a substantially closed environment inside the container, and fermenting the mass in the sealed container. Another method of treating seeds includes placing a multiplicity of pierced seeds in a ventilated enclosure, forcing air through the enclosure such that the seeds are exposed to the air, and mixing the seeds.
