    The present invention relates to a cracker composition containing xylose, to a cracker made from the composition, and to a method for preparing the composition, wherein xylose is included not only to achieve excellent coloring and gloss even without spraying oils and fats on the surface of the cracker, but to also provide a low-calorie, low-fat cracker with an excellent, light and simple taste. More particularly, the present invention relates to a cracker composition containing xylose, to a cracker made from the composition, and to a method for preparing the composition, wherein the cracker is prepared from a composition that contains xylose rather than spraying oils and fats on the surface of the cracker which would lead to the uptake of a high amount of fat and calories, to thereby provide a cracker which has a superior appearance and olfactory and gustatory characteristic, which is healthy, and which can be used as a snack for weight control. Further, the present invention relates to a cracker composition containing xylose, to a cracker made from the composition, and to a method for preparing the composition, wherein no oils and fats are sprayed on the surface of the cracker so as to prevent oils and fats acidification which would otherwise occur during the distribution or storage of the cracker.

  • 04/09/15--05:00: Enriched Coffee Creamer
  • An enriched whipped coffee creamer provides nutritional supplements and energy enhancing compounds. The enriched whipped coffee creamer includes a creamer base, a nutritional supplement, an energy enhancing source, an anti-oxidant source, and an emulsifying agent. The nutritional supplements, the energy enhancing sources, and anti-oxidant source are mixed into the creamer base. Due to the mixture naturally separating into layers, the present invention includes the emulsifying agent to lengthen the time which the mixture is homogenous. The enriched whipped coffee creamer is designed to be stored and dispensed from a canister, and barometrically pasteurized to retain the potency of the nutritional supplements at high temperatures. A propellant is used to expel the enriched whipped coffee creamer from the canister by increasing the pressure within the storage vessel. The enriched whipped coffee creamer is aerated as it exits the canister to provide a light consistency that can decorate the surface of a beverage.

    A coffee pod which can be used for machines for preparing and dispensing coffee beverages that comprise at least one extraction chamber, and at least one piston for compacting a predetermined amount of ground coffee inserted into the extraction chamber. The pod includes: a predetermined amount of ground coffee compacted into an aggregate of ground coffee beans, having an outer shape suitable for rolling, and preferably a substantially spherical ball shape; and a filter casing formed of at least one pervious, microporous or microperforated sheet or film, trapping and matching the shape of the compacted coffee aggregate. The sheet or film is flexible, having stretchability properties with an elongation at rupture of at least 30% and an ultimate tensile strength of less than 2,000 N/m, and a thickness of at least 150 μm.

    A topping for snack food products comprising large food flakes pre-coated with an adhesive and a method for applying the pre-coated food flakes to a food substrate to produce a topped snack food product. The food substrate may be any savory shelf-stable food known in the art such as a chips, pretzels, crispy bread products, popcorn, or nuts. The food flakes may be pieces of vegetables, fruits, meats, cheeses, grains, herbs or spices that complement the food substrate. The pre-coated food flakes are heated to partially liquefy the adhesive coating and then are applied to the food substrates. The topped food substrate is then subjected to changed process conditions to harden the adhesive, forming a bond between the food flakes and the food substrate.

    The invention is directed toward a capsule for use in a single serve beverage brewing machine. The capsule forms a chamber with a film cover sealing the chamber for the brewing of a beverage. At the base of the capsule the external wall of the capsule protrudes into the body of the capsule chamber to form a diffuser. The base of the paper filter cup rests on the diffuser. The top rim of the paper filter cup is attached to the film cover. Between the walls of the paper filter cup and the external capsule wall is a vertical flow channel. During the brewing process water initially flows through the extractable ingredient in the paper filter, circulates upward within the vertical flow channel, back through the paper filter, and recirculates through the extractable ingredient.

    A self-contained popcorn popper has an open side provided with an air-flow curtain extending at least partially across the open side and directed inwardly. Effluent from popping flows upwardly into a “U”-shaped vent, through an effluent filter and flows into said air flow curtains to reduce particulate-bearing effluent emitted from the popper cabinet. Heated air is recirculated in a lower warming bin to maintain heat in popped corn dumped from a popping kettle and that air is recirculated in the bin, also to reduce emission of particulars into the environment surrounding the popper.
