    The invention concerns a unit (1000) for controlling transmission of power to a thermal conditioning device (100) e.g. for coffee machine, comprising a controller (2) with a start-up profile for starting-up said device (100) from a temperature of inactivity (TI) to an operative temperature for bringing to a target temperature (TT) a fluid circulating through said device (100) at start-up end, said controller (2) being arranged to allow circulation of fluid through said device (100) at start-up end and to compare the determined temperature (SOT) of fluid circulated at start-up end to the target temperature (TT) and derive a temperature difference therefrom. It is characterized in that the start-up profile has at least one parameter and in that said controller (2) has a self-learning mode for adjusting said parameter as a function of said temperature difference and to store the adjusted parameter for a subsequent starting-up of said device (100). The invention concerns in particular a method for optimized heating up of a coffee machine (104).

    The invention proposes a food cooker and a related method of cooking starch-containing food. The food cooker comprises a container configured to receive starch-containing food and a first portion of water; a heating unit coupled with the container; and a controller electrically coupled to the heating unit and configured to control the heating unit to heat a mixture of the starch-containing food and the first portion of water in the container to a first temperature to generate a heated mixture, the first temperature being higher than 110° C., and to cool down the heated mixture in the container to a second temperature to generate a cooled mixture when the mixture of the starch-containing food and the first portion of water in the container has been heated to the first temperature; wherein the controller controls the repeated heating and cooling steps for a given number of cycles.

    Methods and systems for processing foods includes providing a flexible package. A pre-processed food product (e.g., raw food) is provided and is processed by rapidly heating the food product. This processed food product is delivered into the flexible package for consumption by a user. Additionally, in other embodiments, methods and systems for processing frozen food products to shelf stable or refrigerated products are provided. A frozen food product is provided, converted to a pumpable state, and then processed by rapidly heating the food product. This processed food product is then delivered into a package

    A method by means of which both the sensory appeal and the dietary fiber content can be increased in a range of food products. By assuring that a suitable dietary fiber component is substantially completely converted to a fully-dispersed colloidal sol, such a material in this state can produce beneficial changes in the sensory and functional properties of certain foods to which it is added while being otherwise undetectable by the consumer. “Suitable” dietary fiber being on that is capable of becoming the dispersed phase in a colloidal sol, and that neither has nor reacts to produce any objectionable taste, aroma, color or mouth-feel in the food to which it is added.

    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.

  • 10/30/14--05:00: BEVERAGE BREWING DEVICE
  • To make espresso, a plunger forces heated liquid from a plunger cylinder to a coffee container. The resulting brewed liquid is allowed to pass through an expansion pressure relief valve. The expansion pressure relief value maintains a pressure sufficient for brewing espresso as force on the plunger forces the liquid to flow through the coffee container and through the expansion pressure relief valve.
