    Sweetened compositions comprising at least one sweetener and rebaudioside X are provided herein. Rebaudioside X is present in the sweetened compositions in a concentration at or below the sweetness recognition threshold, while the at least one sweetener is present in a concentration above its sweetness recognition threshold. Rebaudioside X acts to enhance the sweetness of the sweetened compositions, e.g. beverages and concentrate compositions, thereby allowing for preparation of sweetened compositions with reduced calorie content. Methods of enhancing the sweetness of a sweetened composition with rebaudioside X are also provided herein.

    Crushed pills containing medicines and/or supplements for animals are mixed with an edible paste formulated from all naturally occurring ingredients including specific starches that when mixed together bind the composition to the crushed pills. The mixture is designed to stick to animal fur as well as been very palatable to animal. The medicine is delivered to the animal by offering the paste from a spoon or finger or by smearing the paste on the animal, where it readily adheres to the fur and may be licked off. To encourage finicky animals such as cats to accept the composition from a spoon or finger, and to make it a pleasurable experience for them, the composition includes a desirable food such as real salmon or real meat.

    The present invention includes a solid fat composition that includes an oil having saturated fat and a microbial oil having a long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid and an emulsifier. In particular, the solid fat composition can have high levels of long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid and low amounts of emulsifiers. In preferred embodiments, the polyunsaturated oil is an unwinterized microbial oil. The invention also relates to methods for making such compositions and food, nutritional, and pharmaceutical products comprising said compositions. The present invention also includes a microbial oil product prepared by extracting an oil-containing fraction comprising at least one LC-PUFA from a microbial biomass, and treating the fraction by a process of vacuum evaporation, wherein the oil product has not been subject to one or more of a solvent winterization step, a caustic refining process, a chill filtration process, or a bleaching process.

  • 01/22/15--05:00: Lysozymes
  • The present invention is directed to lysozyme variants and nucleotide sequences encoding same. The lysozyme variants have antimicrobial and/or lysozyme activity and comprise an alteration of an amino acid sequence at one or more positions. The present invention is also directed to methods for producing and of using the Opisthocomus hoazin lysozyme and the lysozyme variants of the present invention as antimicrobial agents.

    A method and composition are provided for coating a component to achieve colon-targeted delivery. A component is coated with a fructose-based non-digestible carbohydrate such as a inulin, fructo-oligosaccharide or neosugar. The coated component is orally administered to a monogastric animal. The non-digestible coating causes the composition to pass through the stomach and small intestine without being degraded, and delivers the component to the colon where the coating is digested by microbial fermentation and the component is released.

  • 01/22/15--05:00: Phytase Variants
  • The present invention relates to a phytase which has at least 74% identity to a phytase derived from Citrobacter braakii and comprises at least one alteration as compared to this phytase. These phytase variants have amended, preferably improved, properties, such as thermostability, temperature profile, pH profile, specific activity, performance in animal feed, reduced protease sensitiliby, and/or an amended glycosylation pattern. The invention also relates to DNA encoding these phytases, methods of their production, as well as the use thereof, e.g., in animal feed and animal feed additives.

  • 01/22/15--05:00: Child Feeding System
  • A spout pouch, configured to removably couple to a feeding device, for feeding liquid to a child includes a spout having an inner surface that includes at least one feature selected from the group consisting of a ridge, rib, boss, recess, groove and step. The inner surface is configured to engage with a portion of the feeding device when the portion of the feeding device is inserted into the spout. The spout pouch also includes a pouch of flexible material coupled to the spout and configured to hold the liquid. Other systems, methods, and components are also provided.

    The present invention relates to a method for reducing the concentration of pathogenic organisms such as Listeria spp. in fermented food products. The method comprises the steps of: (i) providing a food material, (ii) mixing said food material with a starter culture, (iii) mixing the food material with at least one adjunct culture in form of a bacteriocin-producing Pediococcus species, (iv) subjecting the mixture provided in step (iii) to a fermentation process, said fermentation process being conducted at conditions that are sub-optimal for growth of the bacteriocin-producing Pediococcus species in order to provide a limited acidification and allow for a high production of bacteriocin, and obtain a fermented food product. Furthermore, the invention relates to the use of bacteriocin-producing Pediococcus species as an adjunct culture for securing microbial safety of fermented food products.

    A method for preparing a food that is less allergenic from a particulate solid food matrix that is more allergenic and contains allergenic proteins, in particular a peanut and/or tree-nut matrix. The method comprises the step of processing dispersion of the solid food matrix in an aqueous medium by high-pressure homogenization to obtain a homogenate consisting of a dispersion of allergenic proteins initially contained in the matrix mixed with solid particles of the matrix. The homogenization step can be preceded by a step of grinding the matrix, and followed by a step of processing the homogenate with a protein-degrading agent, in particular with a probiotic microorganism.

    Dietary nutritional supplements specially formulated for use by high school, college and professional athletes, especially wrestlers. The nutritional supplements build strength, endurance and stamina, replenish electrolytes lost during intense sweating, provide essential nutrients, and increase and sustain energy. The nutritional supplements can be mixed with each other in various combinations to provide athletes with essential nutrients as necessary based on the activity undertaken. While designed primarily for athletes with demanding workout routines, the nutritional supplements can benefit persons of all ages by providing essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Through the use of natural and nontoxic ingredients, the nutritional supplements are designed to provide beneficial vitamins and minerals without leading to violations of anti-doping regulations or causing other detrimental effects. Especially preferred formulations include the combination of various essential amino acids and vitamin B combinations that are stable and can be delivered orally as a spray.
