    A system and method for controlling blisters. The method begins by mixing the ingredients to form a dough with a moisture content between about 35% and 60%. The dough is sheeted and cut. Thereafter, the dough is pre-heated to reduce the moisture content to between about 10% and about 45%. The preforms are then docked and dehydrated. The docking system, in one embodiment, has a backing plate and a docking device with at least two docking pins of varying lengths. The docking device is adjustable relative to the backing plate. The system also has a removing plate which removes preforms from the docking pins.

    A system and method for producing a packaged food article or beverage may include processing a first food source including a spoilage microorganism along a first processing path, which may limit temperature of the first food source to be below a temperature level that causes the spoilage microorganism to be inactivated. A second food source may be processed along a second processing path, which may heat the second food source to be in a predetermined temperature range that causes spoilage microorganisms in the second food source to be substantially inactivated when in the predetermined temperature range for a predetermined period of time. A package may be filled with the first and the second food sources. The second food source, when mixed with the first food source, may be in the predetermined temperature range for the predetermined period of time in the package to inactivate the spoilage microorganism.

  • 01/01/15--05:00: Food Packaging Apparatus
  • A food packaging apparatus includes a bowl, a lid, and a seasoning package, where the lid is selectively positioned with the bowl in between a closed configuration and an opened configuration. The closed configuration enables the food packaging apparatus to store frozen food and cook the stored frozen food through a steamer. The opened configuration allows the users to access the cooked food within the food package apparatus. The food packaging apparatus is made from biodegradable and compostable material in order to eliminate the plastic or paper wastage, minimize environmental impact of the production and disposal of the packaging apparatus, and the leaching of harmful chemicals during the steaming process.
