    The present invention recognizes the need for an apparatus and method for creating carbonated beverages having a customizable carbonation level. The invention uses a CPU to control an inlet valve which connects a tank of pressurized carbon dioxide to a vessel containing the beverage to be carbonized. The tube connecting the tank of pressurized carbon dioxide to the vessel contains an orifice for reducing the carbon dioxide's flow rate, thereby increasing control over the amount of carbon dioxide introduced to the vessel. A motor agitates the vessel, causing the carbon dioxide to become absorbed in the beverage. Then, an outlet valve causes excess pressure to drain from the vessel. An outlet orifice causes the pressure to release gradually, thus preventing the beverage from foaming.

    This disclosure relates to a system configured to determine masses, weights, and/or other quantities of individual ingredients added to a food dish during preparation. At least some of the components of the system may be configured to be used in a food preparation area. The system may include a scale, a client computing device, external resources, and/or other components. The system may be configured to weigh and/or determine the mass of individual ingredients of the dish as the ingredients are added to the dish. The system may be configured to determine the individual mass and/or weight of each ingredient based on the masses and/or weights of individual ingredients previously added to the dish and/or a current mass and/or weight of the dish as a given ingredient is added.

    The present disclosure provides systems and methods for manufacturing food products. In a general embodiment, systems for manufacturing a food product include at least one heat exchanger, at least one food product tank, at least one conduit downstream of the food product tank for flow of the food product, and a flow detection device coupled to an exterior of the conduit. The flow detection device includes a processor and a computer readable medium storing instructions which, when executed, cause the processor to perform a spread spectrum analysis of the flow of the food product through the conduit. Methods for manufacturing food products are also provided.

    The present invention relates to a timing device for cooking, namely grilling, baking, convection, and other methods known to one skill in the art. Specifically, the present invention relates to a timing device that, in a preferred embodiment of the present invention, provides the amount of time food has been cooking and the amount of time since the last time the food was checked. Specifically, the present invention preferably resets a timer when a cooking device, such as a grill or an oven, is opened and/or closed. More specifically, the present invention provides one timer that resets when a cooking device is opened and/or closed and optionally at least one other timer that remains running. The timers can be stopped, started, turned on and off, and reset manually.

    A crisp food product is prepared in a first phase from thin food pieces of raw fruit, vegetable or gelatinizable proteins, by blanching them (if necessary) and drying them. A second phase takes place in a vacuum chamber, where the dried thin food pieces are exposed to heat to expand them, are quickly removed from the heat source and are cooled, before being removed from the vaccuum.

  • 12/04/14--05:00: CARTRIDGE EXTRACTION DEVICE
  • A device (1) has: a cartridge seat (10) arranged to receive an ingredient cartridge (2) for extraction; a beverage outlet (35) connected to this cartridge seat for dispensing beverage during extraction; and a liquid injection arrangement (50, 60, 61, 70, 80, 81) comprising a pump (60) for pressurizing and circulating liquid from a source (50) via the cartridge seat into the beverage outlet. The liquid injection arrangement further comprises a valve (80′) between the pump and the cartridge seat. The liquid injection arrangement is configured to release via the valve (80′) pressure from this pressurized liquid in the injection arrangement and maintain liquid in the injection arrangement from the pump (60) to the cartridge seat (10) after the pump is stopped, so as to inhibit dripping from the beverage outlet (35).

    An apparatus for scaling dough and method of using the same includes a pair of infeed rollers that provide dough to pair of positive pressure rollers that rotate faster that the rate dough is received. A bed defines a ram chamber with an inlet and an outlet. The bed is adjacent to the pair of positive pressure rollers. Dough is received in the ram chamber through the inlet. A ram disposed in the ram chamber reciprocates therein to compress dough. A rotatable head with a scaling chamber is adjacent the outlet of the ram chamber. The rotation of the head and the reciprocation of the ram are synchronized so that a downward stroke of the ram compress dough received in the ram chamber into the scaling chamber.

    Disclosed are various embodiments of a food press that utilizes mechanical devices, such as lever arms, inclined planes, cams, and/or rollers to increase the force applied to food by a ratio of two to one or more in comparison to the force applied by a human operator to the device. High compression forces are particularly important when working with low fat foods such as low-fat hamburger, game meat, flaked or ground fish or ground vegetable products. The various embodiment of food presses described and disclosed herein may also be used to produce stuffed food products.

    Some embodiments comprise a process for forming a modified bran product for use in a variety of food products including beverages, ready to eat cereals, cereal products, granola type products, health bars, baked goods and confections. An exemplary process comprises first cooking the bran at high temperatures of from 250 to 290° Fahrenheit for 30 seconds to 4 minutes to form a cooked bran slurry. The cooked bran slurry is then subjected to an aqueous micro-grinding step to form a cooked slurry having a mean particle size of 150 microns or less. Alternatively, the cooked bran slurry is first dried and then later subjected to grinding or pulverization to form a cooked bran powder having a mean particle size of 150 microns or less.
