    An alcoholic beverage is aged in a wooden barrel after the barrel is covered by a film having an oxygen transmission rate of at least 50 cc/m2/day and an ethanol transmission rate of less than 30 g/m2/day. The beverage acquires one or more specific flavor components in an amount of 50%, 75%, or 100% relative to amounts of one or more of the same flavor components in a control alcoholic beverage aged in a wooden barrel without the film thereon. Covering the barrel with the film reduces the angels' share evaporative loss, while allowing the beverage to develop desirable flavor components during aging. In another embodiment, the process reduces angels' share evaporative loss while achieving organoleptics indistinguishable from a control.

    Provided are a production method for an edible fermented dairy product using, as a raw material, sterile full fat soy flour, which has a very high nutritional value and has a markedly improved taste evaluation that includes flavor and smooth texture, and a fermented dairy product produced by the method. A production method for a fermented dairy product includes the steps of: producing sterile full fat soy flour having a grain size of from 100 to 1,000 meshes by pulverizing sterile dehulled soybeans prepared so as to have a bacterial count of 300 cells/g or less by using a method of separating whole soybeans into cotyledons, germs, and hulls; adding water to the sterile full fat soy flour to prepare a powdered soy juice, followed by sterilizing the powdered soy juice by heating; homogenizing the powdered soy juice to prepare a homogenized powdered soy juice; and adding a lactic acid bacterium to the homogenized powdered soy juice, followed by fermentation to prepare fermented milk.

  • 02/05/15--05:00: GLUCOSYL STEVIA COMPOSITION
  • Glucosyl stevia compositions are prepared from steviol glycosides of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni. The glucosylation was performed by cyclodextrin glucanotransferase using starch as the source of glucose residues. The short-chain glucosyl stevia compositions were purified to >95% content of total steviol glycosides. The compositions can be used as sweetness enhancers, flavor enhancers and sweeteners in foods, beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

    The present invention concerns a process for treating water and the use of calcium carbonate in such a process. In particular, the present invention is directed to a process for remineralization of water comprising the steps of (a) providing feed water having a concentration of carbon dioxide of at least 20 mg/l, preferably in a range of 25 to 100 mg/l, and more preferably in a range of 30 to 60 mg/l, (b) providing an aqueous slurry comprising micronized calcium carbonate, and (c) combining the feed water of step (a) and the aqueous slurry of step (b) in order to obtain remineralized water.

    Systems and methods are disclosed for providing carbonated water through a typical kitchen faucet. The faucet-integrated carbonation system can include a carbonated water reservoir coupled to a residential or commercial cold water supply line as well as a CO2 tank, all of which can be mounted under a kitchen countertop or the like. The water held in the reservoir can be carbonated using the CO2 when a user activates a CO2 activation mechanism. The system can further include a carbonated water on/off valve for dispensing carbonated water from the carbonated water reservoir via a waterway with an outlet disposed at the end of the faucet.

    A calcium-fortified beverage and method of making the beverage is provided. A calcium source is included that provides about 40% to about 65% of the calcium from calcium lactate and about 35% to about 60% of the calcium is provided from hydroxyapatite. A component may be included for at least substantially masking the aftertaste of the calcium source.

    The present invention relates to stable and white iron fortification and iron+iodine double fortification agents, their preparation and use in fortification of salt. These agents help overcome the normal difficulties encountered in iron and iodine fortification such as low iodine stability on storage, development of colour and odour, and use of unwanted additives to impart stability. In one of the invented products, both iron and iodine coexist in stable manner in the same matrix which allow for a more uniform distribution of iodine. The process of preparation is demonstrated to be scalable and utilizes commonly available raw materials which would enable the products to be synthesized in affordable manner.

    The present invention relates to a pouch and a method for making the same. In the inventive method, which is adapted to produce pouches having a limited amount of fusible material, a heat-sealable cord is arranged on a web forming confronting side surface of each pouch. Those confronting side surfaces are fused by heating the heat-sealable cord. The present invention furthermore provides a pouch, in particular containing a brewable or extractable commodity such as tea, with a pocket defined between confronting side surfaces of a web. The pouch of the present invention can have a limited amount of fusible material as the confronting side surfaces are joined by solidified melt of a heat-sealable cord arranged in vicinity of at least one edge of the pouch.

    A bakery product and method of producing the same are provided. The bakery item includes a baked item having an underside, an upper side, and side surface. A first underside sub-region that extends over the entire width and part of the longitudinal extent of the underside is coated. A second underside sub-region that extends over the entire width and part of the longitudinal extent remains uncoated in the form of a grip region. The sub-region of the partial-coat underside which is to be coated is dipped into a bath of not yet set coating substance, which is set by cooling to form the coating. The underside of the baked item, which is to be coated, is oriented at an angle α between 1° and 20° in relation to the original surface of the bath at least during the setting operation.
