  3. Fat Replacement System from Natural Plant Materials for Improving Food Nutrition, Quality, and Reducing Costs


    Obesity is a growing epidemic that threatens the health of both adults and children. The problem is exacerbated by challenging economic times and increasing food costs that put pressure on consumers to purchase lower priced meals, which may be of inferior nutritional value and/or contain excessive proportions of animal fat. Whereas many ingredients can lower fat and calorie contents of foods, thei ...

  9. A Particulate Mass Flux Sensor for the Food Process Industry

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 85

    Currently, there is no suitable method of monitoring the mass flux of particulate material such as flour, sugar, chocolate chips, etc. for a continuous production process. Therefore, many of the food products are manufactured using batch processes, with very high inefficiencies and wide variation in the quality of the end product. If a continuous particulate mass flux sensor were available, then f ...
