    A dairy-based yogurt product having a protein level above 15%, sometimes more than 25%, with a smooth and rich texture and no grittiness. The yogurt product includes a particular selection of dairy proteins and other ingredients to raise the gelation temperature of the dairy proteins and avoid causing gelation or precipitation during pasteurization. Additionally, pasteurization temperatures, times and methods are selected to avoid gelation. Starting dairy proteins generally have relatively higher pH levels and low total acidity (TA) levels to help reduce gelation during pasteurization. Ingredients such as buffering agents and sequestering agents may be utilized to help raise the gelation temperature, as well as higher sugar levels which can control hydration of the proteins.

    The presence of non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) in the plant cell wall reduces the digestibility and limits the apparent metabolizable energy (AME) and performance of animals. The main chain degrading enzymes, especially xylanase, cellulase and glucanase play an important role in improving the digestibility of NSP in the feed. Ferulic acid esterase (FAE) breaks the ferulate cross linkages in the plant cell wall, and aids the main chain hydrolases to further degrade the plant cell wall. The present study investigated the synergy of FAE in combination with main chain degrading enzymes in improving the AME of birds fed with high fiber diet. The addition of FAE improves the access of main chain degrading enzymes, digestibility of high fiber diet, AME in layers and broilers, Body weight and reduces FCR in broilers.

    The invention encompasses methods of preparing a stratified frozen confection for hand consumption and the related confection. The methods include filling an aliquot container defining a three dimensional shape with at least one open end with an amount of a frozen material, reducing the temperature of the frozen material within the scoop to about −12.2° C. (10° F.) or less; placing a first surface of the frozen material in contact with an interior surface of a first substrate, the first substrate having a length dimension an a width dimension; removing the frozen material from the aliquot container. The first surface of the frozen material is in contact with the interior surface of the first substrate and a second surface of the frozen material is positioned in a plane above the plane of the first substrate. Thereafter, the methods include manipulating the second surface of the frozen material to place at least one cavity in the second surface; disposing upon the second surface of the frozen material an amount of a filling to form a filling layer that has a first surface that is in contact with the second surface of the frozen material and a second surface; applying a second substrate to the second surface of the filling, the second substrate having a width dimension and a length dimension. Thus, a stratified frozen confection having at least two layers disposed between a first substrate and a second substrate is formed.

    An alcohol-containing food product made by combining: (a) a first aqueous solution that includes a multivalent salt, one or more liquid alcohol additives and a thickening agent; with (b) a second aqueous solution that includes an alginate bath. The combination forms spherical beads, less than about 20 mm in typical diameter, with a liquid alcohol center encapsulated in a gelled outer shell. The resulting end product should be collected and stored in a third aqueous solution that maintains similar properties to the first aqueous solution and one or more liquid alcohol additives.

    Disclosed is a closure liner composition comprising a mixture (or blend) of a thermoplastic polymer, an oxygen barrier polymer, and a particulate oxygen scavenging material. The oxygen barrier polymer preferably comprises polyisobutylene. The particulate oxygen scavenging material preferably is selected from the group consisting of an alkali metal salt of sulfite, ascorbate, isoascorbate, and a mixture of two or more of these materials. The closure liner composition may be used to fabricate a liner for a closure (e.g., a metal crown used to cap a bottle) that provides superior oxygen reduction properties and improved shelf life.

    A method for executing heating according to property of food is provided, in which a cooking appliance is provided with a reading device, a displaying screen, and a printing device. The cooking appliance forms a heating zone, which receives sensors and an ultrasonic scanner arranged therein. An object-to-be-heated is placed in the heating zone and the ultrasonic scanner scans and displays an outside configuration of the object on the displaying screen to allow a user to apply an automatic process or manual selection of a temperature difference between a single point or an average of multiple points for more than one or two points and another point for carrying out a heating operation. The sensors detect a temperature difference between a surface temperature and an interior temperature of the object in order to ensure that the temperature difference is kept constant.

    The present disclosure provides systems and methods associated with non-thermal electroporation. One or more electromagnetic radiation sources may be used to generate an interference pattern having at least one antinode. The electric field associated with the antinode may be configured to cause irreversible electroporation. Thus, the antinode may be suitable for at least partial sterilization by rendering cells as non-viable through electroporation. An antinode may be formed by constructive interference of two or more lobes of two or more radiation sources. An antinode may be spatially varied with respect to an object, volume, and/or surface. A controller may spatially vary an antinode according to an electroporation pattern, such as a stochastic or rasterizing pattern, to achieve a desired sterilization level and/or maintain a temperature characteristic (e.g., absolute temperature, relative temperature, and/or rate of change) with a threshold range.

    Preground cocoa cake powder is mixed with pH neutral or alkalized water and continuously fed into a recirculating jet mill operated by superheated steam. In the mill, butterfat is separated while the cocoa cake is ground to a uniform fine particle size. Flash vaporization of the water mixed with the cake causes the particles to “explode,” improves separation of butterfat, and aids in the grinding action of the mill. Solid particles in the exit stream of the mill are recovered by cyclone separation, as a finely ground, defatted, cocoa product. Exhaust gases and butterfat exiting the cyclone separator system are fed into a desuperheater, where butterfat is recovered. The exhaust of the desuperheater is delivered to a bag collector for further separation and recovery. Other components that have a negative effect on the cocoa powder are neutralized and/or removed, providing an enhanced taste to the final product.

    The defatting method pertains to a simple and practical removal of fat, oil or grease from a broth surface during cooking or right before eating, in order to consume broth without the floating oil, fat or grease for a better health. The embodiment of my method is to adopt a blower (28) generating air stream (22) and aiming at a specific area on the surface of broth (24) in a container (20), blowing out a certain area free or minimal of floating fat, oil or grease (26) on the broth surface. Then scoop out from this defatted area to extract broth (32) free or minimal of fat, oil or grease (26). Another embodiment of the defatting method is to tilt container (20) and level the liquid surface to the tip of the laid down side of container (20), divert forward air stream direction from the rear of container (20), continuously divert forward air stream direction to drive fat, oil or grease (26) until they completely overflow out of container (20), thereby leaving behind the fat free broth (24). Blower (28) for the defatting purposes in my method has no doubt to become a novice appliance in the kitchen, on the table, and in the food industry and others.
