    The described pKa process creates a unique combination of active ingredients. The calcium carbonate carrier is impregnated with various proportions of active ingredients and the compounds are made more effective by the sheer and absorption action as they are combined in the described process. The calcium carrier is adjusted to incorporate small amounts of highly efficient/effective pH adjusters. No natural solution exists in Nature with a pH of 10.6 that is optimal for adjusting the pKa naturally in foods. The present invention effects a change in the pKa of most acids and therefore impacts pH which can positively affect flavor, color and taste. The reduced moisture process in combination with the invention solution applied as a treatment results in fruits and vegetables that exhibit cleaner flavors, better texture, enhanced color and lower microbial counts than is found in standard IQF vegetables currently available.

  • 12/11/14--05:00: EDIBLE COATING COMPOSITION
  • The present invention relates to edible coating composition, particularly to an edible coating composition for providing moisture barrier. It is an object of the present invention to provide an edible ice-cream cone coating composition. It is another object of the present invention to provide a coated ice-cream cone with improved moisture barrier properties. It is another object of the present invention to provide a coated ice-cream cone that retains cone crispness at the time of consumption. It is yet another object of the present invention to provide a coated ice-cream cone that shows improved moisture barrier during long periods of cold storage even under varying temperature conditions. It is still another object of the present invention to provide a method for manufacturing a coating ice-cream cone. It is yet another object of the present invention to provide a coated ice-cream cone having improved shelf life period. It is yet another object of the present invention to provide coated ice-cream cones that has good storage stability at higher storage temperatures. We have found that an edible coating composition having a chitosan-soap complex provides for a hydrophobic coating. It was found that when at least an inner surface of the ice-cream cone includes the coating composition it improves the shelf life for which the cone retains its crispness at higher storage temperature.

    The present invention is a method for cutting pork to create a meat cut that mimics a pork chop meat. The method involves removing the bone and meat from the pork leg. The method then includes sealing the pork chop within a hermetic enclosure and chilling the enclosed pork chop to a temperature in the range of 35 to 38 degrees Fahrenheit. The resulting meat cut includes, bones or no bones pork chops.

    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. During the pressurization process, the pressure inside the vessel is monitored by the CPU to determine whether more CO2 should be added to the vessel. 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.

  • 12/11/14--05:00: AERATED CHOCOLATE
  • A process for preparing an aerated chocolate which comprises incorporating a solvent component into a gas by bubbling the gas through a reservoir containing the solvent to give a gas phase, and injecting the gas phase into tempered liquid chocolate.

    A closure device capable of dispensing a metered amount of liquid into a container during a closing action and capable of doing so for several successive closing actions. The closure device comprises a cap wall (3), a deformable reservoir (5) capable of being filled with a liquid and a rigid plate (4) with one or more perforations (6). Upon closure the deformable reservoir is compressed by being squeezed between the rigid plate and the cap wall. The invention further relates of use of such a closure device to prolong the open shelf-life of spoilage-sensitive contents held by a container.

  • 12/11/14--05:00: Microbial Oxygen Absorber
  • Oxygen is a major quality-deteriorating factor with respect to many food products in that it may cause the growth of molds and the development of rancid off-flavors, which reduce the quality or shelf life of many food products. The present invention provides an improved food packaging and a method for prolonging the shelf life and quality of packaged foods by packaging the food in a packaging material together with a microbial oxygen absorber, such as Lactococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Lactobacillus spp., Leuconostoc spp., Brevibacterium spp., Propionibacterium spp., and Bifidobacterium spp.

    A cupcake tray has spikes, such as paperboard spikes, that extend into a cupcake cavity. The spikes prevent the cupcake from popping up and out of the insert when the cupcake box is jarred. The spikes easily fold down when the cupcake is inserted, but provide resistance in the upward direction when the cupcake box is jarred. The cupcake tray has creased panels disposed about its outer periphery to fold downward to support the cupcake tray in a cupcake box at a desired height. Each cupcake cavity in the cupcake tray has cutouts, typically semi-circular cutouts, for a user to insert their fingers to remove the cupcakes without damaging them.
