  • 10/23/14--05:00: ACCELERATED PRODUCT AGING
  • Accelerated aging of a product is provided by submerging in a body of water a container having a product to be aged therein. The container is coupled to anchoring device(s) via a coupling apparatus. The anchoring device(s) and the coupling apparatus are operatively configured to limit movement of the container relative to the anchoring device(s) when the container is at least partially submerged in the body of water. Movement of the body of water causes agitation of the container when the container is submerged in the body of water, and the agitation accelerates an aging process of the product in the container. Example products that may benefit from accelerated aging as described herein include alcoholic beverages.

    High protein expanded products are produced by extrusion with unique blends of ingredients, such as wheat protein isolates, modified wheat starch, salts, gums and moisture. The mixture is extruded in a twin-screw extruder with the temperatures in the range of 50 to 140° C., screw speeds of 250 to 450 rpm and with a back pressure of 350 to 1200 psi for different recipes. A range of expanded wheat crisps and other expanded products with wheat protein contents ranging from 30 to 90% are obtained from this process. The expanded products have good cell structure with varying cell sizes when viewed under a microscope. This process can be used to develop a varied range of products such as, wheat crisps, wheat curls, wheat loops etc. The products may be used in nutritional or health bars and other comestible having a high protein and low carbohydrate content.

    Described are emulsion compositions comprising oil, water and partially hydrolyzed soy beta-conglycinin, as well as materials and methods for their preparation and use. The soy beta-conglycinin can be enzyme-hydrolyzed material, such as trypsinized material. The degree of hydrolysis of the soy beta-conglycinin can be light, for example up to 2.5%. The hydrolyzed soy beta-conglycinin can be effective to form fibril sheets adsorbed to oil droplets at the interface between the droplets and a continuous aqueous phase in an emulsion composition. The soy beta-conglycinin can be hydrolyzed to such an extent that it provides improved oxidative stability to the oil in the emulsion composition while also providing physical stability equal to and/or greater than that obtained using a corresponding nonhydrolyzed soy beta-conglycinin composition.
