  • 03/05/15--05:00: Protein Recovery
  • A process for recovering a proteinaceous material from a fermentable organic material, comprising: (i) forming an aqueous mixture of a fermentable organic material and a fermentation agent capable of fermenting the organic material to produce ethanol, wherein the organic material is a vegetable material containing protein; (ii) fermenting the aqueous mixture to produce ethanol; (iii) recovering from the fermented aqueous mixture an ethanol stream which is rich in ethanol and a co-product stream comprising unfermented organic material, fermentation agent and an aqueous solution of dissolved solids in water; (iv) subjecting the co-product stream to a first separation stage to recover a first stream rich in the unfermented organic material and a second stream rich in the fermentation agent suspended in the aqueous solution; and (v) subjecting the first stream to a protein recovery step in which at least part of the fibre in the unfermented organic material is separated from the unfermented organic material to provide a protein rich material and a residual fibre containing less protein than the rich material.

    A method for rapidly cooling poultry carcasses during processing by injecting the carcasses with a composition including water and an antimicrobial agent. The composition may be in slush ice form or liquid form. The antimicrobial agent, such as peroxide, plays a critical role in this method. The antimicrobial agent serves to lower the freezing point of the chilled water of the composition below 32 degrees F., which allows greater heat exchange when the chilled water composition is injected into the warm interior of the carcasses. The antimicrobial agent also prevents bacterial contamination of the carcasses as a result of the possible transfer of bacteria from the exterior surface of the carcasses into the interior of the carcasses during injection.

    Embodiments are directed towards regulating flow rate in an espresso machine, during a multi-phase brewing process which includes a pre-brew and an extraction phase. During the pre-brew phase, coffee grounds are slowly pre-wetted and/or out-gassed with a first volume of water delivered at a first flow rate. During the extraction phase, a second volume of water is delivered, at a second flow rate, to extract espresso, where the second volume is delivered at a generally greater pressure than the first volume. The second flow rate is greater than the first flow rate. The flow rates, volumes, and pressures are regulated by the espresso machine, which includes a flow rate regulation assembly that comprises first and second flow paths and first and second valves. Baristas may vary the flow rate, volume, and pressure of water throughout the brewing process by opening, closing, or otherwise adjusting at least one of the valves.
