    Provided herein is a method for treating untreated rice bran to produce a treated rice bran. The method comprises inactivating lipase in the untreated rice bran, saponifying the fatty acids in the untreated rice bran to fatty acid salts, and contacting the untreated rice bran with a source of bisulfite anions so that an aldehyde or ketone in the untreated rice bran forms an organosulfite. The method produces the treated rice bran, wherein the amount and characterization of protein and fiber between the treated rice bran and the untreated rice bran remain unchanged. A treated rice bran composition is also provided, which comprises fatty acid salts, inactivated lipase, organosulfites, between about 14% and about 16% by weight protein, and between about 8% and about 10% by weight fiber.

    The present invention provides an emulsion composition that ensures excellent emulsion stability and excellent solubility in water, as well as excellent transparency and storage stability of a solution prepared by adding the emulsion composition to water. The present invention also provides an aqueous composition, in particular, a solution aqueous composition (aqueous liquid composition), preferably food or a beverage, containing the emulsion composition. The emulsion composition is an emulsion composition prepared by emulsifying an oil phase component and an aqueous phase component using gum ghatti, wherein the emulsion composition comprises gum ghatti in a proportion of more than 25 parts by weight based on 100 parts by weight, i.e., the total amount, of the oil phase component; and the gum ghatti has a viscosity of 50 to 3000 mPa·s, which is measured by preparing a 15 wt % aqueous solution of the gum ghatti and measuring its viscosity for 1 minute at 20° C. and 30 rpm using a Brookfield viscometer.

    An assembly and method are provided for storing and dispensing a soluble substance, such as a flavoring, into a liquid. A useful application of the subject invention includes the case where lime-flavored liquid is contained in a foam artificial lime stored in the neck of a beer bottle, attached to a beer bottle or can, or attached to the 6-pack or 12-pack carton. The artificial lime may be retrieved from the neck or a protective covering and acted upon so it diffuses the lime-flavored liquid into the beer when it is inserted into the beer bottle. Alternately, juice from the artificial lime may be squeezed into the beer, or the artificial lime may be simply retrieved and discarded. Rather than needing to buy a natural lime, cut it up and push a wedge into a beer bottle, an artificial lime, or a packaged natural lime, may be stored directly in or with the beer bottle and placed in functional contact with the beer at time of consumption.

    The invention provides molded products having particulates and a method and device for applying particulates to the surface of the molded products. In a general aspect, the molded product comprises an undistorted three-dimensional design and has particulates that do not distort the shape of the three-dimensional design. The molded product can be made by a method comprising filling a mold in a die roll with one or more particulates, filling the mold with a dough, compressing the dough into the mold, and releasing the compressed dough from the mold to form the molded product.
