  • 02/12/15--05:00: METHOD FOR PRESERVING FOOD
  • A method for preserving food. The food is heated in a moist state in a container, which has a venting opening and is suited as transport and retail packaging, by way of microwaves (M) for a limited time, however at least until hot steam (D) from in the container and exists through the venting opening. After the heating has ended, a gas (G) is injected into the container using a cannula, and a container wall made of plastic film is pierced with the cannula. The plastic film that is used has a thickness of less than 100 μm. At least one layer of the plastic film is made of polyethylene terephthalate having a thickness of greater than 19 μm.

  • 02/12/15--05:00: ULTRASONIC ROTARY MOLDING
  • The present disclosure describes an ultrasonic rotary molding system that is used to form edible compositions or food products as they move along a conveyor belt. The food products are formed by an ultrasonic rotary wheel that includes one or more cutting tools that cut, and perhaps three dimensionally mold, food product strips. The system may include a movable backing plate that is located below the point where the ultrasonic rotary wheel cuts the food product strips. The movable backing plate may be spring loaded and it may exert force upwards against the conveyor belt and in turn against the food product.

    A product conveying and coating system includes at least first and second, sequentially arranged conveyor belts, with at least the second conveyor belt being a solid belt. Interposed in a gap between the first and second belts is a dispenser head of a coating manifold. The dispenser head spans a gap between upper surface portions of the first and second conveyor belts, with an elongated side wall outlet portion of the dispenser head being exposed, in a downstream direction of the conveyor unit, to the upper surface of the second conveyor belt. The system provides for dispensing of coating material directly onto the second, solid conveyor belt and enrobing at least bottom and partial side portions of food products upon the solid belt. Provisions are made for scraping from the solid belt, removing from the food products and recycling excess coating material.

    An automated preparation of flatbread, particularly tortillas, by an apparatus for includes packing dough portions in capsules for enabling the dough to be suitable for extended refrigerated and unrefrigerated storage. The capsules are gas-tight sealed with a foil and conveyed in upside-down position on a conveyor belt. The foil is removed by two adjacent shafts which grip the foil and tear it off. The capsule is then positioned on a holding ring and the dough portion falls downwardly onto a lower pressing and baking plate. An upper pressing and baking plate swivels downwardly by an actuator for pressing and baking the dough. After lifting the upper plate away, the finished flat bread glides out of the apparatus.

    A carbonated beverage appliance in accordance with the present invention includes a housing and a carbonating head assembly configured to releasably engage a top end of a bottle containing a liquid to be carbonated. The bottle is engaged with the head assembly in a manner so as to provide a liquid and gas-tight seal. A tube is arranged in the housing for directing a flow of pressurized gas from a gas cylinder to the liquid within the bottle to produce a carbonated beverage. The carbonated beverage appliance includes a quick-connect mechanism for attaching a gas cylinder to the appliance, and a dispensing mechanism for the on-demand dispensing of a carbonated beverage from the bottle while it is attached to the appliance.

    The method and dairy base formulation allow a user to prepare a milkshake in more consistent ways, more quickly, and with lower cost than currently available formulations and methods. The dairy base formulation eliminates the need to prepare and store frozen dairy products such as ice cream beforehand. A milkshake can be prepared by blending ice, the dairy base formulation, and a flavor. The resulting milkshake has desirable organoleptic properties.
