    An improved s'more-like food product allows the user to achieve the same taste profile as a conventional s'mores food product while greatly simplifying the preparation of the food product by the user. The improved s'more-like food product is pre-made such that the marshmallow element effectively “overwraps” the chocolate and graham cracker elements. This configuration provides a replica of a plain marshmallow, which is its aesthetic feature. That is, it looks like a traditional plain marshmallow which provides the consumer with some familiarity. However, this configuration is also functional in that it effectively eliminates mess during eating and provides a ready-to-heat product in a pre-made fashion which simplifies preparation of the s'more-like food product by the user. Edible wraps or cups can also be utilized to further enhance the eating experience and other flavors and other color variations for the food product can be provided depending on consumer preference.

    An apparatus for accelerated or controlled degassing of roasted coffee. The apparatus comprises a container for receiving and retaining roasted coffee, a source of inert gas in fluid communication with the container, and a controller. The controller includes a timer and a valve. The valve is operatively associated with the source of inert gas and has an open and a closed position. When in its closed position the valve restricts the flow of inert gas into the container. When in its open position the valve permits the flow of inert gas into the container such that the inert gas displaces at least a portion of the gas in the container. The timer causes the valve to cycle between its open and closed positions at predetermined time intervals. The flow of inert gas can also be controlled through the use of a gas sensor in communication with the interior of the container.

    The present invention relates to a novel solvent-free process for the production of protein-, starch- and fiber-enriched fractions or fractions rich in specific compounds from pulses, grains, oilseeds, and dried fruits. Unlike conventional wet processes, this dry process preserves the natural configuration and structure of separated components. This process employs a tribo-electrostatic technique to selectively charge proteins, carbohydrates, fibers, and other components in pulses, grains, oilseeds, and dried fruits and separates them based on the magnitude and type of their charge. The invention also relates to the protein-, starch-, and fiber-enriched fractions or fractions rich in specific compounds obtained using the process of this invention, and to the use of these fractions in a variety of applications that include the food industries, in particular gluten-free market, in the production of high functional protein concentrates and isolates, in particular soy protein concentrate and isolate, as pharmaceutical and/or nutraceutical agents, and in the production of bio-based materials.
