  • 11/20/14--05:00: PACKAGING FOR FOOD PRODUCT
  • A package for a food product can include an insert enclosed within a single film formable using, e.g., flow-wrapping, to enclose the food product and the insert. At least one portion of insert may be made up of an absorbent material laminated to a backing, the absorbent material adapted to absorb moisture within the package. The insert may include a base upon which the food product can be placed and two or more sides extending up from the base to contain the food product from moving in one or more directions. Fins or overlapping portions of the film may be configured on at least two edges of the single film allowing a seal to be created thereby further allowing the single film to substantially enclose the food product and the insert. Crimped seals may further be employed to completely seal the food product and the insert within the single film. One or more of the seals may be self-venting to release accumulated steam/moisture during a cooking or preparation process.

    A capsule is provided for use in a machine for preparing product from capsules. The capsule includes a body that defines an interior space with an opening at one location and an aperture at another location. A soluble closure is disposed on an interior surface of the body to cover the aperture. Ingredients are disposed within the interior space for preparing a desired product. A cover is disposed over the opening and a removable cover is disposed over the aperture. The removable cover is removed from capsule prior to insertion of capsule into the machine. The soluble closure is adapted to dissolve upon exposure to fluid from the capsule machine in order to allow prepared product to exit capsule through aperture. In another embodiment, a delivery system such as a soluble pouch or a film containing ingredients is disposed in the capsule.

  • 11/20/14--05:00: CAPSULE FOR BEVERAGE
  • A capsule includes a casing provided with a base wall and with a side wall defining an open cavity for containing a product to be combined with a fluid to produce a final product. The base wall has such a thickness as to be perforable. The capsule further includes a stiffening element connected with an inner surface of the base wall within the cavity to stiffen the base wall. The base wall includes at least one through opening at a preset portion to be perforated for the outflow of the final product.

    A fruit or vegetable pulp processor includes a defect separator configured to separate defects from a fruit or vegetable pulp stream. The defect separator may have associated therewith at least one adjustable control parameter relating to an amount of defect separation from the fruit or vegetable pulp stream. At least one image sensor may be configured to sense defects in the fruit or vegetable pulp stream, and a controller may be configured to adjust the at least one adjustable control parameter of the defect separator based upon sensed defects. Accordingly, the amount or level of defects in the fruit or vegetable pulp stream may be controlled to provide a desired balance between yield and quality.

  • 11/20/14--05:00: Eggshell Extraction Tool
  • An eggshell extraction utensil for selecting, isolating and removing eggshell fragments from a viscous fluid such as egg whites in a container. The utensil includes a handle, strainer portion and lip. The shape of the strainer portion is designed to maximize contact with a container edge and provide ease of use for the intended purpose. A lip extends from the strainer portion to more easily capture eggshell portions. By using the utensil, one may easily extract eggshell fragments during the preparation of certain recipes that require egg.

    Food spoilage leads to food wastage, human morbidity and mortality. This food preservation takes advantage of use of Hydrogen Sulfide without or with Hydrogen or Helium into an environment where food is stored. The method delays food ripening, food spoilage, food decay and is safe, and preserves the natural characteristics of food, including color, flavor, aroma and texture. Hydrogen Sulfide treatment maintains higher activities of catalase, guaiacol peroxidase, ascorbate peroxidase, glutathione reductase and lower activities of lipoxygenase relative to un-treated controls. Hydrogen Sulfide also reduces malondialdehyde, Hydrogen peroxide, and superoxide anion to levels below those in control fruits during storage. Hydrogen and Helium are administered as gas and Hydrogen Sulfide is administered as a gas, liquid, or a Hydrogen Sulfide donor, within a closed environment or by providing Hydrogen Sulfide within the item. This also includes enhancement of innate endogenous Hydrogen Sulfide-Hydrogen production in the organisms including plants.

    A beverage forming system and method in which characteristics of a dispensed beverage are controlled. A beverage forming system may include an outlet chamber having an inlet opening to receive beverage from a beverage forming chamber, and an outlet opening to output beverage. The outlet chamber may have a standpipe in the outlet chamber between the inlet and the outlet openings that prevents a direct passage of beverage to the outlet openings, thus controlling characteristics of the beverage, such as an amount of foam, the size of bubbles in a foam, etc. The standpipe may have a portion extending upwardly from a bottom of the outlet chamber and impeding a direct flow path to between the inlet and the outlet openings, thus forcing flow to pass around and/or over the standpipe portion.
