Embodiments related to juicing methods and apparatuses for extracting juice from food matter using juicer cartridges are described. In one embodiment, a juicer cartridge may include one or more separate internal compartments. Food matter loaded into the juicer cartridge may be compressed by a corresponding juicer and expelled through an outlet that may be sealed until activation. Food matter may be pre-sized according to various physical characteristics, and the juicer cartridge may be injected with a gas to enhance shelf life and reduce nutrient loss. The juicer may also be provided with “smart” functionality to provide safety features, track usage, and enhance the operator experience. Several embodiments of packing systems for preparing juicer cartridges are also described.
Apparatus and method for visibly changing the appearance of a single serve hot beverage cartridge pod to identify its having been previously brewed, along, where desired, together with or independently visualizing previously hidden message content embedded within the cartridge pod construction itself.
Embodiments herein disclosed relate to a computer-controlled germination system built around a rotating vessel within which a germinating process takes place. The system includes automatable controls over air flow, water flow, temperature, and vessel rotation.
Disclosed herein are new methods of preparing foods and beverages under the exclusion of oxygen have now been invented. In one embodiment, one or more of the food processing steps are performed under an inert atmosphere.
The present invention provides for passive V0C recovery in the fermentation process that does not affect or minimally affects the conditions within the fermentor vessel and does not affect or minimally affects the conditions within the headspace of the fermentor vessel itself while using the production of CO2 emitted during the fermenting process as the source of driving energy to move a portion of the gaseous/vaporous material in the headspace of the fermentor through an appropriately sized conduit to a chilled surface condensing device to condense the V0Cs (principally ethanol) for recovery and to exhaust the CO2 to the atmosphere or to recover the CO2 for other uses. The conduit from the headspace of the fermentor to the condenser is sized to provide a flow restriction in a selected range such that the headspace equilibria are not affected while allowing a portion of the gaseous/vaporous material in the headspace to move through the conduit in response to the generation of the CO2 during the fermentation process.
A sea salt cup, made from a single block of unrefined sea salt, having an inner lining to significantly minimize or prevent the intermixing of the salt with any liquid or food item contained therein, and also having a salty lip for enhancing the flavor of the liquid or food item contained therein. The sea salt cup comprises a uniform exterior portion, a uniform hollow interior receptacle, a flat bottom, a flat rim, and an inner lining. The inner lining is made of plastic or other durable material and serves as a barrier between the salt and any liquid or food item contained in the sea salt cup.
A system and method for carbonating a beverage is disclosed. The system includes a saturation tank having a gas head space of CO2, a carbonation tank, and a beverage supply system to pass the beverage between the saturation tank and the carbonation tank. A beverage supersaturated with CO2 from the head space is formed in the saturation tank. The supersaturated beverage is passed from the saturation tank to the carbonation tank. Once the amount of CO2 added to the beverage exceeds saturation, some of the CO2 escapes from solution from the beverage and the pressure in the carbonation tank increases. Once the pressure within the carbonation tank reaches a pre-defined pressure for the desired volume CO2/volume beverage, a pump supplying the beverage to the saturation tank is shut-off and the inlet and outlet valves of the carbonation tank are closed.
Foods that are fermented with synergistic and simultaneous use of bacilli and mycelial cultures. The foods include a cellulosic food substrate containing detectable amounts of 1,3/1,6 β-glucan which has been fermented by a bacilli strain of bacteria in cooperation with mycelium of a strain of Agaricomycetes fungi including polyporales. The bacilli strain maintains the food substrate at a pH of less than 4.7 to inhibit growth of pathogenic microbes and the consequent need to sterilize the food substrate in a sterile environment prior to fermentation by the mycelial culture.
The invention relates to a method and to a device for processing raw materials and effectively producing meat- and sausage-based raw cured goods by means of a drying and aging process together with the addition of starter cultures, wherein the raw material or an already available intermediate product is exposed to a vacuum. According to the invention, moisture, in particular water or water vapor, released during the treatment under vacuum is bound by means of adsorbents in order to accelerate the drying process, wherein the adsorption process occurs in one or more stages depending on the desired degree of drying or the aw value of the raw material or intermediate product.

The present invention relates to a method to lighten the texture of a fermented dairy product comprising the following successive steps of: (a) providing a fermented dairy product containing 0.001 to 8 wt % of a texturizing agent and having a solid content comprised between 9.5 and 42 wt % and a total protein content comprised between 2.5 and 25 wt %, (b) freezing the said fermented dairy product at a temperature below 0° C. to obtain a frozen fermented dairy product, and (c) thawing the said frozen fermented dairy product at a temperature comprised between 0° C. and 10° C. to obtain a refrigerated fermented dairy product with a lightened texture.
A non-dairy substitute can be produced from comparatively high starch legumes, such as chickpeas and adzuki beans. In some examples, the non-dairy substitute is produced by hydrating the high starch legumes, remove excess water, and then heating the hydrated high starch legumes in the presence of water and amylase at a controlled pH to reduce the starch content of the legumes. The slurry of reduced starch content can then be filtered to remove insoluble fiber and suspended soluble fiber present in the legume slurry, producing a non-dairy “milk” that can be used in a variety of products. In different examples, the legume “milk” is cultured with the addition of bacterial cultures to form a cheese or yogurt and/or formed into a non-dairy ice cream. In any application, an acidifying ingredient such as citric acid may be added to the product. This can help reduce or eliminate residual legume flavor.
A sterile cheese base mass is proposed which is obtainable by (a) subjecting cheese-making milk to a heat treatment and thus creating a first intermediate product,(b) concentrating the heat-treated first intermediate product and thus creating a liquid cheese base mass as a second intermediate product, and(c) filling the liquid cheese base mass for further processing into a sterile pack, in which it solidifies.
