    Abstract: There is a need to protect the health of hummingbirds by preventing the rapid microbial spoiling of sugar nectar used in hummingbird feeders, without using artificial preservatives. The invention is a method, composition and kit, for naturally preventing spoilage of sugar nectar liquid food by using a transition metal salt, an optional acidifying agent, and an optional functional additive. Certain transition metal salts, such as copper sulfate are surprisingly effective in protecting sugar nectar even at micronutrient levels, below the level consumed by hummingbirds in their natural diet. The invention prevents the formation of unhealthy microbial growth, reduces the need for frequent changing, and keeps the sugar nectar fresh and healthy.

  • Patent number: 8765202
    Abstract: A method of manufacture and a microwave or thermally cookable or reheatable food product comprises a substrate coated with an aqueous coating composition and a fine crumb to form a layer of fine crumb encasing the substrate. This is coated with a batter composition to form a batter coating and optionally a layer of outer crumb. Application of the aqueous coating allows formation of a complete coating on the substrate allowing adhesion of the fine crumb to the entire surface forming an integral shell of the fine crumb.

  • Patent number: 8728554
    Abstract: A method of manufacture and a food product with a substrate impregnated with a stabilizer composition, the impregnated substrate coated with an aqueous or gel coating. The impregnation of the core with the stabilizer contributes to the moisture content of the core during subsequent cooking or reheating. The coating exhibits good adhesion to the impregnated substrate, and can facilitate adhesion of subsequently applied crumb or other fine particles and serve as an additional barrier to loss of moisture from the substrate during the subsequent cooking or reheating.
