|20120263853||HIGH DIGLYCERIDE STRUCTURING COMPOSITION AND PRODUCTS AND METHODS USING THE SAME - Novel structuring compositions and food products including those compositions are provided. The compositions comprise a mono- and diglyceride mixture and have high levels of β′ crystals and small average crystallite sizes. They can be incorporated into intermediate food products such as shortenings and margarines, which can then be used to make a final food such as pastries (e.g., puff pastries, Danishes, donuts), doughs (e.g., for cookies, pie crusts), imitation cheese, icings, frozen potatoes (e.g., French Fries), and/or other foods requiring a fat to provide structure. Advantageously, the compositions provide structure to the final food by replacing unhealthy fats that would otherwise be used to provide structure in the same food item.||10-18-2012|
|20120251662||ANTIMICROBIAL POWDERS FOR THE PREPARATION OF BAKERY PRODUCTS - The present invention is directed to methods and compositions for making dough-based bakery foods, such as bread having extended mold-free shelf-lives, using new antimicrobial powders comprising an antimicrobial agent dispersed in a carrier. The invention is also directed to methods and compositions for preparing dough-based bakery products, such as bread, having long mold-free shelf-lives, by treating the surface of the dough with the antimicrobial powder. Further, the invention is concerned with bakery products having long, mold-free and anti-staling shelf-lives.||10-04-2012|
|20120065422||LACTYLATE SYNTHESIS METHODS USING DILACTIDES - The present invention involves a new synthesis route for the formation of lactylates. The method comprises reacting a dilactide with a compound comprising a hydroxy group. This reaction is preferably carried out in the presence of a cation or other source of alkalinity. Preferred compounds comprising a hydroxy group include any fatty acid and fatty acid alcohol (particularly C||03-15-2012|
|20120009299||MICROWAVABLE FROZEN COOKIE DOUGH - A microwavable cookie dough composition is provided, along with methods of microwave-baking cookies. The cookie dough can be microwave-baked from the raw, frozen state without thawing or pre-baking. The cookie dough also does not require the use of a susceptor to achieve even heating. The resulting cookie has acceptable spread, crumb structure, and texture comparable to a conventional oven-baked cookie.||01-12-2012|
|20110300265||Pan release compositions for preparation of long shelf life, bakery products - The present invention is directed to methods and compositions for making dough- and batter-based bakery foods, such as bread and cake having extremely long, mold-free and freshness shelf lives, by using a novel antimicrobial pan release agent comprising an essential oil dispersed or dissolved in a fat- or oil-based carrier, along with other natural or chemical antimicrobial agents, anti-staling enzymes, and/or flavor enhancement systems. The invention is also directed to the methods and compositions for preparing all-natural dough- and batter-based bakery products, such as bread and cake having long mold-free shelf lives, by treating the surface of the dough, batter, or baked product with the antimicrobial pan release agent, in conjunction with anti-staling enzymes and natural preservatives in the dough or batter formulations. Further, the invention is concerned with all-natural bakery products having extremely long, mold-free shelf lives which are substantially free (both internally and on the exterior surface) of chemical preservatives and antimicrobial agents other than the all-natural antimicrobial pan release agent and optional natural antimicrobial agents inside the dough.||12-08-2011|
