    The invention relates to a method for controlling the atmosphere in a closable space filled with agricultural or horticultural products. The method comprises directly detecting the respiration of the agricultural or horticultural products and adjusting an oxygen content, a carbon dioxide content and/or a nitrogen content in the space subject to the detected respiration. The respiration is detected here periodically, in each case for a determined time, and the space is sealed off from external influences during detection of the respiration. A very good control is achieved by taking the actual respiration as starting point, and a highly reliable detection forms the basis of this control when the detection is performed periodically for some time in a completely isolated atmosphere. The invention also relates to an installation for performing the method, and to a closable space provided with such an installation.

    A process for infusing a consumable substance is described. The process includes the steps of placing a desired amount of an infusion material into a chamber at atmospheric pressure, placing a desired amount of consumable substance into said chamber, sealing said chamber from the surrounding atmosphere, and applying at least one reduced pressure cycle within said chamber. Methods for separating the infusion material from the consumable substance after completion of the infusion process are also described. In addition, devices for infusing liquids or consumable substances, and/or brewing beverages are described. The present invention relates to an apparatus for brewing beverages or infusing a consumable substance comprising a vessel, said vessel comprising a sealable chamber for holding a brewing or infusion material and a liquid or consumable substance, and a filter assembly connected to the sealable chamber; a liquid supply and conduit for introducing at least a portion of said liquid supply into said sealable chamber; and a vacuum source and conduit for reducing pressure in said sealable chamber.

    Methods and systems for continuously producing foaming compositions from powders, granules, and/or particulate are provided and/or powders, granules, and/or particulates that contains high pressure gas. The methods and systems are configured to reduce energy costs and overall processing time and, thus, provide advantages over the prior batch processes that have lengthy temperature ramp-up and cool-down times due to the shortcomings of using a large pressure vessel.

    The present disclosure relates to a device for molding a freezable substance and dispensing a stored fluid substance. More specifically, the present disclosure relates to a device that, when assembled, creates a Popsicle®-like frozen confection having a container containing an alcoholic liquid, where the user employs a plunger to drive the alcoholic liquid upward through a lumen in the frozen confection so that the user may simultaneously consume the frozen confection and ingest the alcoholic liquid. The device is a four-piece assembly. The first member is a handle with a plunger disposed at one end. The second member is a flange and a container extending from the flange and receiving at a first end of the container the plunger, the container defining an inner volume to receive and store a fluid substance. The end of the container generally opposite the end receiving the plunger has an orifice. The third member interacts with the second member at the flange. Finally, the fourth member interacts with the orifice of the container.

    Emulsifying dispersants, comprising an amphipathic substance and an electrolyte, wherein the amphipathic substance forms two or more layers, are capable of stably dispersing a large amount of oil even when used in a small amount. Emulsion compositions containing such an emulsifying dispersant show high emulsion stability even when added to a food or drink containing an electrolyte, and can be used to prepare a final product without the need for a complicated operation.

    This invention pertains to the development of a high protein oil seed flour as a replacement for both wheat based and gluten free flours used in baked, dry and liquid goods which optimizes nutrition. The seed flour is based on the novel use of processing sunflower and other oil type seeds into a flour, meal, or protein isolate to replace a significant portion of traditional and gluten free flours in food goods, including baked, dry and liquid goods. The invention provides composition formulas that significantly optimize and improve the overall nutritional value of processed foods by balancing proteins and carbohydrates through an optimized ratio of seed to grain or tuber flour. The composition formulas also increase the absolute values of protein in processed foods to achieve recommended daily allowances as well as provides for increase satiety, improve blood sugar balance, weight management, and health.

    A pelletizing process and pelletized product is provided using non-food or limited-feed agricultural residue, such as corn stover and soybean stubble, and for various uses, including energy production, such as ethanol or electricity generation, fuel and feed. The agricultural plant material is harvested and baled. The bales are transported to the processing site for storage or immediate processing. The bale strings are first removed, and then the broken bales are shredded. The shredded plant material is then ground to a small size. The ground material is then pelletized without the use of binding additives, to produce densified pellets of the agricultural plant material. The pellets are cooled and then stored or transported to an end user. Chemical agents may be added to depolymerize lignin in the residue material. Nutritional supplements may be added to the material before pelletizing.
