    The described “Foldable Food Grade Cooking Surface and Method of Use” provides cooks of average skill the means to cook soft and fragile items, such as eggs, omelets, crepes, etc., without breaking such items while cooking. The Foldable Food Grade Cooking Surface is made of flexible, thermally conductive, mechanically stable, food grade material such as silicone with or without reinforcing fillers. The preferred embodiment includes handles for manipulating fragile food items during cooking and serving, without the need for traditional cooking implements. Non-planar surface topology, such as ridges, on the cooking surface of the Foldable Food Grade Cooking Surface contain cooking foods within predefined areas, such as the perimeter, of the cooking surface, and can act as a mold for foods that begin in a state that can flow (e.g. liquids of varying viscosity).

    There are provided a method and apparatus for manufacturing hydrogen-containing drinking water that can fill a packaging container with hydrogen-containing water while suppressing the change of the dissolved hydrogen concentration of the hydrogen-containing water to a low level. A method of continuously manufacturing hydrogen-containing drinking water includes (A) a deaeration step, (B) a hydrogen dissolving step, (C) a filling step, and (D) a sealing step. Pressure is applied to water flow channels corresponding to hydrogen-containing water, which is to be injected to a packaging container in the filling step, from purified water that is to be supplied to the deaeration step. The filling step includes: a preparation stage of supplying hydrogen-containing water, to which pressure is applied, into a filling device; a deaeration stage of removing gas, which is present in the packaging container, after connecting the packaging container to the filling device; an injection stage of directly injecting the hydrogen-containing water, to which pressure is applied, into the packaging container; and a discharge stage of discharging hydrogen-containing water, which remains in the filling device, into the packaging container by introducing pressurized air into the filling device. The method further includes a step of immediately proceeding to the sealing step (D) when the injection port and the filling port are disconnected from each other.

  • 02/23/17--05:00: Filtration System
  • A filtration system is arranged to safely vent a storage room into which a fog mixture is introduced. Venting the storage room reduces and/or prevents a substantial increase in the internal pressure of the storage room. To control the pressure differential between the storage room and the ambient air pressure, a venting manifold with an in-line duct fan is used, for example, to exhaust storage room air into the atmosphere. The exhausted storage room air is filtered to reduce the exfiltration of chemicals and/or other contaminants from the environmentally sealed storage room.

    Provided is a method for manufacturing an aerated chocolate from a non-tempered type chocolate containing a non-tempered type non-cocoa fat and having reduced bloom, the chocolate being improved by uniform introduction of fine air bubbles. Also provided is a method for manufacturing baked chocolate, using the aerated chocolate obtained by the above manufacturing method. This method for manufacturing an aerated chocolate involves chilling a chocolate containing a non-tempered type non-cocoa fat from a completely molten state to a temperature 0.5-5° C. lower than the solidification temperature, reheating to a temperature 1-5° C. higher than said temperature, and providing aeration to bring the specific gravity to 0.3-1.1. Baked chocolate is obtained by forming the aerated chocolate obtained by said method to a prescribed shape, and baking the chocolate.
