    A process for producing aqueous chlorous acid solution in which chlorous acid, which is safe for the human body, is easy to handle, and less generates chlorine dioxide, is yielded and used as a disinfectant for a pretreatment in food processing. To an aqueous sodium chlorate solution is added sulfuric acid or an aqueous solution thereof in such an amount and concentration that the pH of the aqueous solution can be kept at 2.3-3.4 to thereby react them and generate chloric acid. Subsequently, hydrogen peroxide is added to the chloric acid in an amount which is equal to or larger than the amount necessary for a reduction reaction to thereby yield chlorous acid. Any one of inorganic acids, inorganic acid salts, organic acids, and organic acid salts, or two or more thereof, or a combination or these is added to the aqueous solution containing chlorous acid yielded, whereby the chlorous and acid can be present for long and the pH of the aqueous solution is regulated to regulated to 3.2-7.0. Thus, high bactericidal power is imparted thereto.

    Disclosed is an apparatus for brewing a beverage, such as coffee, as well as associated methods for brewing a beverage. Apparatuses and methods are disclosed to reduce labor involved in pour-over brewing techniques, while providing greater consistency in the results. Manual and/or automatic movements are provided to a filter (e.g., rotation) and/or a nozzle dispensing liquid over the filter. Water dosage and timing therefore can be automated to the filter. The nozzle can be positioned off-center with respect to the filter to ensure wetting thereof. The nozzle can be made movable for constrained changes to the path of liquid flow relative to the rotating filter.

The entrance area of the capsule includes an entrance filter for supplying the fluid to the extractable product there through. In use, the entrance filter is positioned at a distance from the bottom piercing means, such that the capsule of the system is not pierced by the bottom piercing means. The filter is a multi-layer filter including at least a first layer and a second layer bonded together. The first layer has a higher tear strength than the second layer and the second layer has a higher stiffness than the first layer.

    The disclosure provides a method for selectively removing sulfites, for example bisulfite anionic species, from a beverage comprising free sulfite by providing an effective amount of a non-ionic, solid phase material and contacting the beverage with the solid phase material thereby sequestering the free sulfite on the non-ionic, solid phase material and providing a beverage having a reduced amount of free sulfite that otherwise maintains the general chemical composition with which it started. The disclosure further provides a device for selectively removing sulfite from a beverage comprising a container for receiving a beverage comprising free sulfite, said container enclosing a non-ionic, solid phase material capable of sequestering free sulfite, and a modular apparatus comprising a sulfite capture module and optionally a sediment filter module or an aeration module. Optionally, the non-ionic solid phase material is food-safe.

    The invention relates to a process for the treatment of animal skim milk and for the production of an infant formula base product from animal skim milk, which process is highly efficient and cost effective, as only membrane filtration techniques, such as microfiltration and ultrafiltration, are required. By carefully controlling the process parameters, a product is obtained in which most of the major components are within the desired range for an infant formula base product. The invention also relates to products obtainable by the process according to the invention.
