Nondairy Desserts

Many items available in the ice cream section of your local supermarket are not derived from dairy products. Referred to as nondairy frozen desserts, these ice cream substitutes are derived from either soybeans or rice. Soymilk and tofu are the base of soybean-based products. Water, fructose or other sweeteners, vegetable oil, and flavorings are added. Rice-based desserts are treated with a special process that enhances the rice's sweetness while breaking down the proteins and starches. This base also needs sweeteners and additives. Types of frozen dairy desserts include


Chocolate A 2.2-6.6 self-reporting of reactions to chocolate are reported in two questionnaire surveys (Niestijl Jansen et al. 1994, Young et al. 1994). In an American population-based birth cohort study of 480 children followed up to three years old, 1.7 complained of adverse reactions to chocolate, but none was confirmed on food challenge (Bock 1987), and chocolate is rarely a cause of positive food challenge in allergy clinics (Bock et al. 1988, Crespo et al. 1995). It is likely that the majority of the reported reactions are to other components in the chocolate, for example cows' milk and nuts.

Origin Botanical Facts

Feijoas should be firm and unblemished. They should be eaten within 3 to 4 days of purchase or refrigerated up to a month. Feijoas should be peeled before eating, because the skin is bitter. Immersing the peeled fruit in water and fresh lemon juice keeps it from turning brown. Feijoas usually are eaten fresh as desserts or used as garnishes or in fruit salads. They can be stewed or baked in puddings, pies, and pastries or made into jellies and preserves.

Primary Nursing Diagnosis

Although diet therapy alone can manage symptoms in some patients, most patients can have their GERD managed pharmacologically. Dietary modifications that may decrease symptoms include reducing intake of fatty foods, caffeinated beverages, chocolate, nicotine, alcohol, and peppermint. Reducing the intake of spicy and acidic foods lets esophageal healing occur during times of acute inflammation. Encourage the patient to eat five to six small meals during the day rather than large meals. Ingestion of large amounts of food increases gastric pressure and thereby increases esophageal reflux. Both weight loss and smoking cessation programs are also important for any patients who have problems with obesity and tobacco use.

Flavouring Other Products

Freeze drying can be of advantage with convenience products if the flavouring is mixed with the basic product and they are then dried together. With curd dessert with fruit content, curd dishes and spreads it has turned out that the addition of certain seasonings and flavourings has a stabilizing effect on the final product. This results from their antioxidative properties. The components of curd, such as lactose and milk protein, furthermore cause a good retention of the herb constituents. It is, however, prerequisitive for these effects to take place that the seasonings and herbs are mixed

Discharge And Home Healthcare Guidelines

Encourage the patient to maintain a balance between dietary and pharmacologic calcium. Dietary calcium should be increased and phosphorus decreased. Fluid and fiber should be increased. Milk, milk products, meat, poultry, fish, egg yolks, and cereals, although high in calcium, should be limited because of their phosphorus content. Chocolate is known to interfere with calcium absorption.

Food Processing By High Pressure Treatment

Processing of agricultural products Development of jams, fruit sauce and fruit dessert, processing of plum products, orange juice, rice wine (sake), rice cake (moti), and rice crackers, enzyme inactivation of oranges, food processing by ice nucleation-bacteria, properties of pickles, control of bitter taste in grapefruit juice.

Sketch 6 Rick Loeffler

Many of Rick's comments seem to me very insightful. It is easy to see how those who control finance need to be sure that financial support goes only to deserving cases, and if an individual does not fit into any recognised category it is easy to assume absence of dessert. It is ironic, however, that Rick would probably have found it easier to obtain support if he had been less intelligent and therefore a worse speller. There are two issues here as far as dyslexia is concerned. Because the phenomena of dyslexia are untidy and involve variants and marginal cases, it does not follow that a given individual has no specific needs. Secondly it is possible that highly intelligent individuals who have worked very hard to overcome their disabilities may thereby disqualify themselves from receiving financial or other help.

Ethyl Carbamate Formation

Excessive amounts of nitrogen compounds in juice and wines can impact wine aroma (55) and the formation of ethyl carbamate. Ethyl carbamate, or urethane, is a carcinogen that occurs naturally in fermented foods, including wine, as a result of the fermentative and assimilative activities of microorganisms. Toxicity studies will be completed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration by the year 2001 prior to recommending maximum acceptable levels (Gahagan, 2000, personal communication). At present, the U.S. wine industry has established a voluntary target level of

Polystichum retrosopaleaceum

The grooved stipes are dark chocolate in color, one-fourth of the frond length, and trimmed on opposite outer sides with down- and forward-thrusting pale tan scales. The lanceolate blade with earthward-pointing basal pinnae is bipinnate with 20 or more pairs of pinnae. Sori are medial with peltate indusia.

Medicinal Sapindaceae

Sapindus Mukorossi Gaertn

It can be said that the present state of knowledge on the pharmacological potential of this large family is virtually vestigial. A classic example of Sapindaceae of neuro-pharmacological interest is Paullinia cupana, used by the Tapajoz Indians of the Amazon region to make a tonic beverage since very early times. The dried paste prepared from the roasted seeds containing not less that 45 of caffeine has been used for the treatment of headache and astringent in diarrhea (British Pharmaceutical Codex, 1934, Brazilian Pharmacopoeia, 1959). Today a large number of phytopharmaceutical products containing guarana are on the market. Another example is Paullinia yopo, used for the same purpose by Colombian Indians. Caffeine is the most widely consumed psychostimulant substance, being self-administered throughout a wide range of conditions and present in numerous dietary products including coffee, tea, cola drinks, chocolate, candy, and cocoa.

Polypodium formosanum Caterpillar fern

Description The striking creeping rhizome, crisscrossing itself freely in a tangle, is thick and a chalky pale green. It has small black scales as well as minute black craters (technically known as phyllopodia) that are the scarred stumps left after the fronds are shed. The chocolate-colored stipes are one-half

Future Technologies And Challenges

Other freezing opportunities are related to the freezing point depression of the finished product. The food quality improvement, ice crystallization reduction, better texture and flavor would be a few of the results of the depression of the freezing point. Using recombinant DNA techniques, or chemical methods the suppression of ice crystal growth is a reality. Application opportunities of antifreeze protein and polypeptides technology could be used in vegetables, frozen dessert, and frozen dough (23). 9. Freeze Flo Technology. It consists of producing food products that remain soft, firm in texture, high in stability, and ice free, maintaining its integrity, shape and consistency. Free water activity which encourage microbiological concerns is eliminated by the freeze flow process (27). This technology is currently used in developing freeze flow fruits with application in ice cream, desserts, and other frozen food product dishes. This technology could also be used in developing...

Cheilanthes bonariensis

Description The rhizome is short-creeping to erect with dark chocolate-colored, slight stipes to one-fifth of the frond length. The narrow 1- to 11 2-in. (2.5- to 3.8-cm) wide, linear once-pinnate blades have 30 to 40 pairs of many lobed pinnae. The blue-green upper surface is lightly dusted with an occa

The legal background labelling

This fish sauce may contain many ingredients which might include shellfish capable of causing an allergic reaction in susceptible people, yet the labelling meets the requirements of the law. Also, the stipulation for the labelling of functional additives may itself give rise to problems. A garlic puree used in garlic bread may have contained sulphur dioxide as a preservative, but because this preserving effect is no longer required in the finished product, possibly because it is frozen, there is no need to label its presence. This may present a hidden problem for asthmatics. Other exemptions may be realised through the provisions which permit the use of generic names for certain ingredients or because the ingredient is a food which itself is not required to be labelled with an ingredients list. Certain foods such as chocolate currently fall outside the requirements of food labelling law and are subject to the specific requirements of their own legislation. Typically, this may not...

Treating Hypoglycemia

Treating hypoglycemia is fairly straightforward eat or drink any food that has a lot of glucose and is easily absorbed. Sources of glucose include glucose tablets and gels that you can buy at your pharmacy. Fruit juice and nonfat milk are also good sources. Foods with a lot of fat such as chocolate are not as good because the fat will delay the absorption of the glucose. Fructose does not raise the blood glucose, but most foods that have fructose, such as honey and fruits, also have a lot of glucose.

Purchasing raw materials

All raw ingredients such as flour, milk, nuts and fruit, and compound ingredients such as processed cereals, chocolate, biscuits or toffee must be purchased against a detailed specification. This must include the nature of the product, the ingredients included in a compound ingredient, and any risks of cross-contamination that may occur in the production or packing of the ingredient that is purchased. Supplier Quality Assurance is a system whereby suppliers are audited to ensure that they meet the high quality standards demanded by food manufacturers it places the responsibility of meeting the standards set by the manufacturer clearly within the remit of the supplier. The initial audit procedure is a detailed analysis of the supplier and the operations that occur within their facilities. It is essential that it includes a detailed risk assessment relating to the presence of allergens and particularly the use of peanuts and nuts at the supplier's location. The presence of allergens in...

Collaboration with the food industry retail and manufacturing

So much for what has been achieved - but what about the mistakes that occasionally occur What happens when a nut chocolate bar ends up on the shelves bearing the wrong wrapper Or a customer opens a box of chocolate raisins to find the peanut variety inside A crisis management expert who addressed a food industry conference in 1996 stated categorically that in such cases, the best course open to food companies was to come clean. Sweeping such mistakes under the carpet, he warned, would only lead to disaster. Fortunately, this is the thinking adopted by most - if not all - food companies Some packs of a toffee ice cream dessert thought to contain hazelnut. Packs of chocolate raisins found to contain the peanut variety.

Food labelling in Europe an outline

Labelling requirements are detailed by Directive 79 112 EEC, as amended several times. The provisions of this Directive apply to most prepacked foods (the labelling of a number of products such as cocoa and chocolate products, certain sugars, honey and preserved milks is still controlled by vertical or product-specific standards, but revisions to these intended to simplify and streamline provisions on these product categories are currently under discussion). Foods prepacked for direct sale, i.e. prepacked on the premises for sale over a delicatessen counter or similar, and non-prepacked foods are not covered by the scope of the Directive Member States of the European Union (EU) may establish their own rules in this area. Other key labelling directives are 89 396 EEC on lot marking and 90 496 EEC on nutritional labelling.

Control of allergens throughout the supply chain 841 Crosscontamination

Cross-contamination is the risk of small particles of one ingredient being transferred from a product where they are added to another product where that ingredient is not present. Although it is a term that sounds negative, from a food industry point of view it simply represents the risk of small amounts of certain ingredients being present in a product to which they were not initially added. This can occur when two or more slightly different products are manufactured or packed on the same line and have different ingredients, such as cereal products with different additions or different flavours of chocolate bars. Cross-contamination of ingredients or products can occur at the level of the raw material supplier (who may process many raw materials), during transport or storage of raw materials or, indeed, during manufacture or packing of the finished product. HACCP studies, as detailed earlier, are used to identify any risks of cross-contamination, which can occur at any point within...

The catering industry

In a more bizarre case, thankfully not tragic, a 14-year-old boy from Kent was eating in a restaurant with his family. The waiter was questioned carefully and when it came to dessert the ice cream packaging was brought to the family and all seemed fine. The boy was asked if he would like nuts on the top and he said yes, he had no problem with nuts. Unfortunately the nuts were coated with albumen and sugar to make them separate and crunchy, and the boy suffered a severe reaction for which he required an adrenaline injection. The boy is allergic to egg and had reacted to the albumen. In 1997, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food produced detailed written guidance on allergies for caterers, but many restaurants had taken voluntary action long before then. It was in a Debenhams restaurant that my daughter ate her lethal dessert, and Debenhams reacted positively, immediately and, indeed, compassionately. The company introduced a system whereby Returning to the cold reality, we...

Confirmation of presence of allergens

Once all the above steps have taken place, food manufacturers are able to make a judgement based on all the evidence obtained as to whether a product contains or is free from a particular allergen. Information should be provided to allergy sufferers to enable them to select suitable foods for their diet. The provision of information to consumers on packaged food and food sold loose is discussed later in the chapter. In addition, a number of tests are available that can be used to analyse products for the presence of a given allergen. Generally a radio-immunoassay technique is used which checks samples of a product for specific proteins that have been previously identified as allergens. These tests can be useful, but in some instances results do need to be interpreted with care. Any analysis is only as accurate as the samples that are taken. The sampling of liquid or fluid foods gives a relatively reliable sample, as the food can be further blended to give an even distribution of all...

The use of disclaimers on food labels

In February 1994, one of the founder members of the Anaphylaxis Campaign gave a shrewd warning about the possible negative effects of any food labelling campaign companies would begin to take the easy way out by printing disclaimer notices. A leading chocolate company had already begun to include a warning under the ingredient list of two of its brands stating 'May on rare occasions contain nut traces.' And dire warnings were given that this might conceivably catch on. A key question is How likely is it that someone with nut allergy will come across a particle of nut on, say, a spoonful of breakfast cereal that is supposed to be nut-free The answer is that it is probably very unlikely indeed, but it does occasionally happen. A young boy visiting a football match with his grandfather decided at half time to have his usual treat - a milk chocolate bar that he had eaten many times before. He suffered a mild allergic reaction. Looking at the label he saw the warning in small print 'May on...

Subconscious Incubation

When we test normal people's memory by having them recognize previously presented words that come from the same semantic class or overlapping categories (e.g., sweets, M&M's, caramel, Milky Way, Snickers, chocolate), many normal people will have false memories and think they were told to recall closely related words (e.g., candy) (Schacter et al., 1997). According to associative theory, the distributed representations of the concepts of the words to be remembered substantially overlap the distributed representations of concepts that represent the falsely recognized words. When we tested high-functioning autistic patients (Beversdorf et al., 2000) with this false-memory paradigm, these autistic participants recalled fewer false memories and discriminated true memories from false memories better than did the normal control participants. These results suggest that people with autism have constricted their semantic representations (i.e., relatively sparse and...

Influence of food processing practices and technologies on consumerpathogen interactions

All raw foods contain microorganisms that will eventually cause spoilage unless they are controlled or destroyed. Many of the thousands of microorganisms that have been discovered and identified perform some useful function, such as the production of fermented foods (breads, cheese, wine, beer, sauerkraut, sausages, olives, tea and chocolate, to name just a few). However, it is also true that many raw foods contain pathogens that, if not controlled, can result in human illness. Thus, there are two major roles of food processing - to preserve food against spoilage and to render a food safe for consumption by eliminating or controlling pathogens. Pathogen control in foods results from preventing contamination, applying an inactivation treatment, preventing pathogen growth, or a combination of these practices.

Diet and Patient Education

Patients should be educated to avoid excessive straining at defecation to reduce the risk of pudendal nerve damage. Perianal hygiene must be addressed, including delicate soaps specifically for use in the perianal area, to avoid perianal irritation and pruritus. Only in selected cases should absorbents, diapers, and tampons be recommended. Patients must be educated to reduce or avoid foods that induce loose stools, excessive gastrointestinal transit, or increased intestinal gas production (i.e., milk and derivates, excessive legumes and vegetables, chocolate, tomatoes, caffeine, prunes, grapes, figs).

Microorganisms and food

To the general public, the association of microorganisms and food conjures up negative images of rotten fruit or food poisoning. On reflection, many people may remember that yeast is involved in bread and beer production, but how many realise that microorganisms play a part in the manufacture of soy sauce, pepperoni and even chocolate In the following pages, we shall look at the contribution of microorganisms to the contents of our shopping baskets before considering one of the negative associations referred to above, the microbial spoilage of food.

Legislative Acceptability Of Microbial Polysaccharides

After evaluation, detailed specifications for the food additives include identity and purity. Typically, WHO provides data on biological aspects such as ingestion, calorific availability, and digestibility, and on toxicology. Toxicological evaluation includes short term and long term evaluation using a range of different animals. A two year study using rats failed to show any carcinogenic or other toxic effects which could be attributed to xanthan. Tests on human volunteers may also be included again in the case of xanthan no adverse effects were found although this polysaccharide could effect a slow but significant weight loss in individuals suffering from obesity (113). In the USA, xanthan is permitted as a food additive under regulations controlled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It is on the list of substances GRAS list, being approved in the Federal Register for use as a stabilizer, emulsifier, foam enhancer, thickening, suspending, and bodying agent. Use is permitted...

Comparing categories in a single sample

This is the simplest situation in which we collect frequency data observations are made with one sample from which two or more options may be selected. The frequency data shown in Table 5.6 was obtained in an experiment in which the preferences of a sample of students was observed for two different types of chocolate. The frequencies reported are the observed frequencies and the data are organized into three categories. The purpose of the experiment was to investigate whether there was a preference by test subjects for milk or dark chocolate or whether their selection was completely random. Null hypothesis There is no difference in the number of pieces of milk or dark chocolate selected by the group of students. Alternative hypothesis There is a difference in the number of pieces of milk or dark chocolate selected by the group of students.

Weight Fraction Of Solids

It should be noticed that these changes have been known to occur above a critical water content or aw during food storage. According to Levine and Slade,10 collapse phenomena may include or have an effect on stickiness and caking of food powders, plating of particles on amorphous granulas, crystallization of component compounds, structural collapse of dehydrated structures, release and oxidation of encapsulated lipids and flavors, enzymatic activity, nonenzymatic browning, graining of boiled sweets, sugar bloom in chocolate, ice recrystallization, and solute crystallization during frozen storage.

Personal hygiene practices of consumers

Personal hygiene includes cleanliness of the hands, hair, clothing, and body in general. Hand washing is most frequently the sentinel behavior for assessment of personal hygiene in consumer food safety studies. From a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) perspective, the critical control point for ensuring the safety of foods that are prepared to be served without heating is personal hygiene. Controlling the transfer of pathogens from the hands to food is important for almost all foodborne illnesses, but especially (1) raw vegetables and fruits (2) some types of desserts (3) raw or undercooked foods exposed to polluted water and (4) previously cooked foods handled by consumers and served without additional heating. It is estimated that 5 of Hepatitis A cases are foodborne, 20 of Shigella cases, and 40 of Norovirus cases are estimated as being foodborne (Mead et al., 1999). Thus, hands contaminated with fecal pathogens can be the source of pathogens in foods (Feachem,...

Direct Solvent Extraction Of Solid Samples

An entirely different process of sample-preparation technique involves direct solvent extraction, which is a very simple and convenient technique. Probably the easiest way to do such an extraction is with a Soxhlet extractor. A dried sample such as a spice, chocolate nib, R&G coffee, or a grain can be ground finely and placed in a Soxhlet thimble and extracted with an organic solvent. Either diethyl ether or methylene chloride may be used in such a system. After a number of cycles, the solvent can be combined and concentrated. Nonvolatile organic materials such as lipids, alkaloids such as caffeine and theobromine, and pigments will also be concentrated. The sample may be analyzed directly (with trepidation) or it may be treated as described in the section below, after removal of the solvent. If the sample contained large amounts of lipids (e.g., coffee, chocolate), then the volatiles may be removed by subsequent steam distillation or by a high vacuum stripping technique as described...

Hydrogenation Of Phospholipids

Erols to generate semisolid or plastic fats more suitable for specific applications, it may also be applied to phospholipid fractions. Hydrogenated lecithins are more stable and more easily bleached to a light color, and therefore are more useful as emulsifiers than the natural, highly unsaturated lecithin from soybean oil. These advantages are exemplified by a report that hydrogenated lecithin functions well as an emulsifer and as an inhibitor of fat bloom in chocolate 32 .

Character Impact Flavors In Foods

In recent studies, potent aroma compounds have been identified using various gas chromatography-olfactometry (GCO) techniques, such as Charm Analysis and aroma extract dilution analysis (AEDA) (7,8). The flavor compounds that are identified by these methods are significant contributors to the sensory profile. In some cases, these sensory-directed analytical techniques have enabled the discovery of new character impact compounds. However, in other instances, key aroma chemicals have been identified that, while potent and significant to flavor, do not impart character impact. For example, in dairy products, chocolate, and kiwifruit, these flavor types appear to be produced by a complex blend of non-characterizing key aroma compounds.

Dryopteris lepidopoda Sunset fern

Description The erect rhizome and stipes are adorned with dark chocolate scales. The proportionately tall stipes are one-half of the frond length. The bipinnate, glossy blades, with an average of 20 pairs of pinnae, are broadly lanceolate. They emerge in richly decorative hues of salmon, orange, pink, and deep rose that subside into warm green tones. With the base of the blade squared and blunt (truncate), the frond looks like a glowing arrow. The sori are covered with kidney-shaped indusia and are carried on the upper portions of the blade.

Indirect Methods Of Total Lipid Determination

Time domain low-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) (referred to as wide-line NMR) and frequency domain NMR could be used to determine the total lipid content of foods. In time domain NMR, signals from the hydrogen nuclei (1H or protons) of different food components are distinguished by their different rates of decay or nuclear relaxation. Protons of solid phases relax (signal disappear) quickly, while protons in the liquid phase relax very slowly. Protons of water in the sample relax faster than protons of the lipid. The intensity of the signal is proportional to the number of protons and, therefore, to the hydrogen content. Thus, the intensity of the NMR signal can be converted to oil content of the sample using calibration curves or tables 57-60 . This method can be used to determine the contents of water, oil, and solid-fat and solid-to-liquid ratio of the sample. Time domain NMR has been used to analyze the fat content of foods, including butter, margarine, shortening,...

The Flavour and Fragrance Industry Sectors and Materials

Perfume Industry Teechnology

Whereas the importance placed on the respective trend attributes varies considerably in different regions, the general tendencies are ubiquitous. Moreover, today's consumer focuses on an interesting, pleasurable, exiting or completely new taste experience. Within the flavour sectors, the developments for beverages took the lead in 2004 with 17 new introductions, followed by bakery products (12 ), confectionery (11 ), dairy (9 ), sauces and seasonings (8 ), snacks (8 ), meals and meal centres (7 ), processed fish, meat and egg products (6 ), desserts and ice-creams (6 ), side dishes (3 ), fruits and vegetables (3 ) 14 . - Sugar confectionery (strawberry on top in all regions) and regions with very specific flavours and generally a high geographic diversity (chocolate within the top ten of Asia, liquorice (Europe), tamarind (Latin America), sour (North America)). Therefore, a balance of good taste combined with good nutrition, supplied in 'cool packaging' that appeals to children, seems...

Simple Sugars

The table sugar that we purchase is processed from sugar cane or sugar beets. As an additive to many different types of prepared or processed foods, sucrose adds nutritive value (in the form of calories only), flavor, texture, and structure, while helping to retain moisture. Today, sucrose is most often used to sweeten (nondietetic) carbonated beverages and fruit drinks (other than juice), candy, pastries, cakes, cookies, and frozen desserts. One of the most commonly consumed forms of sugar is called high-fructose corn syrup. High-fructose corn syrup is also commonly used to sweeten sodas, fruit drinks (not juices), some ice creams, and some manufactured pastries and cookies. Other forms of sucrose include brown sugar, maple syrup, molasses, and turbinado (raw) sugar. The increase in sugar consumption also has been attributed to the increasing availability of low-fat versions of such dessert and snack foods as cookies, cakes, and frozen desserts. Often, the sugar content of these...


As one of the most popular fruits in the United States, apples are widespread in the American cuisine. They are used in salads, alongside meats, and in pilafs, desserts, preserves, juices, cider, pies, breads, cakes, and alcoholic beverages (such as the liqueur calvados). Dried apples make tasty snacks or additions to


Many natural and processed foods exist either partly or wholly as emulsions, or have been in an emulsified state at some time during their existence 1-5 . Milk is the most common example of a naturally occurring food emulsion 6 . Mayonnaise, salad dressing, cream, ice cream, butter, and margarine are all examples of manufactured food emulsions. Powdered coffee whiteners, sauces, and many desserts are examples of foods that were emulsions at one stage during their production but subsequently were converted into another form. The bulk physicochemical properties of food emulsions, such as appearance, texture, and stability, depend ultimately on the type of molecules the food contains and their interactions with one another. Food emulsions contain a variety of ingredients, including water, lipids, proteins, carbohydrates, minerals, sugars, and small-molecule surfactants 3 . By a combination of covalent and physical interactions, these ingredients form the individual phases and structural...


Because of their tartness, gooseberries are usually cooked with sugar and not eaten fresh. This tart but versatile berry can be used by itself or blended with other fruits to make pies, jams, or jellies. Gooseberry sauce prepared from underripe berries complements such dishes as roasted goose or duck. Gooseberries are also made into wine or vinegar. For desserts, the larger, thinner-skinned, sweeter types are picked when fully ripe. The European gooseberry is usually preferred to the American type. The freshness and flavor of strawberries can be preserved if they are not washed until just before they are to be eaten. Fresh strawberries are most frequently served sliced over small shortcakes, topped with whipped cream used as a garnish for appetizer and cheese platters or added to fresh fruit tarts. Whole, long-stemmed strawberries dipped in chocolate make an elegant dessert. Strawberries are also added to rhubarb pies and made into preserves. Mixed in a blender with low-fat milk or...


Biopolymers are used as functional ingredients in many food emulsions (e.g., yogurts, cheeses, desserts, egg and meat products) because of their ability to cause the aqueous phase to gel 1a . Gel formation imparts desirable textural and sensory attributes, as well as preventing the droplets from creaming. A biopolymer gel consists of a three-dimensional network of aggregated or entangled biopolymers that entraps a large volume of water, giving the whole structure some solid-like characteristics. The appearance, texture, water-holding capacity, reversibility, and gelation temperature of biopolymer gels depends on the type, structure, and interactions of the molecules they contain.

Cream And Spur Cream

It is extremely high in fat and calories, but it creates the creamy, rich, indulgent taste in desserts and sauces. Heavy cream has between 36 and 40 percent milk fat by weight. The thickest of the sweet creams, heavy cream is used mainly for whipping cream and for desserts. A lower-fat version, with 30 to 36 percent milk fat, is called light whipping cream. For this cream to whip properly, emulsi-fiers and stabilizers are added to the cream. Both products double in volume when whipped. For this reason, whipping cream is also called double cream.


Eyelid Lymphangioma

CLINICAL PRESENTATION Eyelid involvement may present as a superficial lesion with multiple cyst-like excrescences, or as a complex of channels that cause lid thickening and distortion of the eyelid. Lymphangioma circumscripta reside near the skin surface and present as one or more crops of small, vesicle-like lesions which may become hyperkeratotic or verrucous and can become hemorrhagic especially following manipulation. Cavernous lymphangiomas present as spongy, vermiform lesions. Extensive involvement may be complicated by elephantiasis of the eyelid. Cystic hygroma is the most massive form of lymphangioma and usually involves the neck or extremities, and while seldom directly affecting the eyelid it may be associated with separate vascular lid abnormalities. Hemorrhage into any of these lesions may occur forming a clotted hematoma (chocolate cyst). Lesions may enlarge with upper respiratory infection due to proliferation of lymphoid aggregates within the tumor.

Food safety risks

Over the past 20 years, the composition of world agriculture trade (food and nonfood, such as livestock feed) has changed. The share attributed to bulk goods (e.g. wheat, corn, and coffee) has been declining while the share of processed consumer goods (particularly chocolate products, pastry, and prepared foods) has been increasing (Fig. 3.1). Although shares of intermediate processed goods (e.g. soybean oil) and fresh horticultural goods have remained fairly steady, their total quantities traded have kept pace with the increasing volume of total agricultural trade (Gehlhar and Coyle, 2001).2

Blechnum brasiliense

Description The rhizome is erect, eventually lifting to form a stipe-stubbled trunk of 12 in. (30 cm) in circumference. Fronds form a dramatic upright shuttlecock of open foliage. The succulent, short, 2-in. (5-cm) stipes are dark with matching chocolate-colored linear scales. The obovate blade is widest above the midpoint and tapers strongly at the base.


Companies are supplied with detailed notes giving definitions of 'free from' for each ingredient and they indicate on the form whether their product is free from or not free from that specific ingredient. The information is entered onto the databank, categorised into product groups, which is used to subdivide the booklets, and returned to the company for checking. When all the information has been collected and sorted by the host computer, the various free-from lists are generated. The information is subdivided into over 20 food categories, such as meat products, confectionery, desserts, etc., which makes the products easier to find. These lists are forwarded annually to the BDA, which is responsible for printing and distribution of the lists to its members. Approximately 8000 booklets are distributed annually by the BDA companies are asked to notify Leatherhead during the year of any product formulation changes that might affect the status of a product listed. Dietitians are notified...

The 25 rule

This rule is contained in European Food Labelling Legislation. It states that compound ingredients (i.e. those that themselves contain a number of ingredients, e.g. toffee, biscuits, chocolate chips) that comprise less than 25 of the finished weight of the product need only be declared as the compound ingredient and not as the constituent ingredients that make up the product.

Brand extensions

Many brand names are now used across a wide variety of products for example, a chocolate bar brand may be used for a dessert, ice cream, drink, chocolate spread, Easter egg, and various shapes and sizes of chocolate bars. It is possible that individuals with a specific food allergy and for whom the original chocolate bar is acceptable may assume that the other products sold with the same brand name are also suitable for their diet. However, in most cases different products will contain different ingredients, be manufactured on different production lines, in different factories, using different technologies and may well contain different allergens from other products under the same brand. It must be stressed that each product needs to be assessed on its own merits by the consumer by checking the ingredients list on the label. The onus is certainly on the consumer to check the suitability of each product for their particular diet.


Green gooseberry pie used to be a traditional Whit Sunday dish (Savage), and besides being used as a dessert fruit, or in tarts, etc., they have traditionally been used to mix into a sauce with sorrel and sugar, to be eaten with a young goose (Grigson. 1955), hence the derivation of the name, according to some. It would be a green goose, cooked when the gooseberries were ripe, and eaten with gooseberry sauce. Another similar use was to have stewed gooseberries, pureed, with mackerel (Mabey. 1972). That there is nothing new in this cook's practice, see Gerard The fruit is used in divers sauces for meat, as those that are skilfull in cookerie can better tell than my selfe . Not that he thought gooseberries were entirely a good thing, for they nourish nothing or very little not worth a gooseberry berry was a phrase common enough in Shakespeare's time), and Gerard saw but little of their vertues . Certainly, the juice of the green gooseberries cureth all inflammations, erysipelas, and S...

Dryopteris varia

Description The upright rhizome produces a tuft of stiff fronds equally proportioned between stipe and blade. The lower stipe is clothed in dark chocolate scales, which become lighter as they approach the rachis. The triangular to pentagonal leathery blade, with up to 20 pairs of deltoid pinnae, transitions from tripinnate to bipinnate upwards from the base towards an abruptly narrowed apex. New growth as illustrated in Iwatsuki (1992) is coppery red. The lower pinnules adjacent to the rachis are slightly elongate, like stubby little tails. The sori are submarginal and covered with kidney-shaped indusia.

Aqueous Samples

When concentrated aqueous samples are available, direct injection techniques can be employed. In industry, aqueous materials are frequently available from industrial operations. Examples of this would be condensates from coffee grinders, vapors from chocolate conching operations, and aqueous materials from citrus juice concentrators.

Favorite Flavor

What is the most popular ice cream flavor in North America Vanilla, of course. It is the flavor of almost 30 percent of all ice cream produced. Next on the list are chocolate and Neapolitan. For the occasional snacker, commercially available desserts provide no real preparation time allow the container to soften slightly Ice cream is delicious, but it should be an occasional indulgence, given the amount of calories and fat in it. When it is time to splurge, limit the amount of ice cream or other dessert treat to a small serving instead of filling a bowl. In addition, choose a frozen dessert that has less than 3 grams of fat per half cup, and use it as a foundation to enhance other, healthier foods. For example, add fruit such as strawberries or bananas to ice cream in equal ratios instead of pouring on the chocolate syrup.


Milk fat fractionation has been described by Deffense (1993). By combining multistep fractionation and blending, it is possible to produce modified milk fats with improved functional properties. The use of anhydrous milk fat fractions in milk chocolate formulations has been described by Full et al. (1996). Dimick et al. (1996) reported the chemical and thermal characteristics of milk fat fractions isolated by a melt crystallization. Methods for determining thermal fat crystal properties for the fractionation of milk fat were developed by Breitschuh and Windhab (1996).


Turnips seem to have been first grown in the London area in the 16th century, but Norfolk was the first county in which they were extensively cultivated for cattle feed (G M Taylor). Gerard, at the end of that century, was rather disparaging about them the root .is many times eaten raw, especially of the poore people in Wales, but most commonly boiled. The raw root is windy, and engendreth grosse and cold bloud the boiled doth coole lesse . yet it is moist and windy . The Regimen Sanitatis Salernii was equally scathing Turnips cause flatulence and spoil the teeth, stimulate the kidneys, and when ill cooked cause indigestion (Hickey). There seems to have been some doubt early on as to what one should do with them -English travellers in Scotland in the 17th century complained that they got turnips (neeps) as dessert. ( The Scots had no fruit but turnips (Graham)).

Water Avens

(Geum rivale) The roots are aromatic, slightly astringent, and once used to flavour ale, and to keep it from turning sour (Hulme). A decoction of the rootstock was a favourite beverage among the American Indians (Yanovsky), and it is still used, boiled in milk and sweetened, as a beverage not too different from chocolate (Sanford). The plant is actually called Chocolate-root (Sanford), or Indian Chocolate (Leighton). It has its medicinal uses, too, as an aromatic bitter, and the root was chewed to sweeten the breath (Fairweather). The Welsh text known as the Physicians of Myddfai had a remedy for hoarseness


Use the AutoSum button to calculate the total number of pieces of chocolate consumed. Although the observed frequencies (number of pieces consumed) is recorded in the experiment, we now need to calculate the expected results, i.e. what results would we expect if the selection of the chocolate was a completely random process If the process were random, we would expect that it would be equally likely that the number of pieces of chocolate consumed would be exactly the same (like tossing a coin and choosing heads or tails), therefore the probability should be 50 50. (as there are two types of chocolate). On the Excel worksheet calculate the expected consumption using the above relationship, i.e. enter the formula (205+289) 2. An answer of 247 should be returned. If the selection of the chocolate pieces was completely random we would expect that exactly 247 pieces of both dark and milk chocolate would be eaten. We now have to test this against the observed results to find out whether our...

Learning to choose

Many autistic children find it difficult to choose between two things and often repeat the last thing being offered. To make it easier to learn how to choose, you can start by letting the child choose between something desirable and something irrelevant, e.g. chocolate and a cucumber. Once the child is confident with this selection process, you can let him or her choose between two equally exciting things,for example chocolate and ice-cream.

Common spices

Also known as Jamaican pepper, allspice is ground from the hard brown berries of the allspice tree, which grows in Mexico and throughout the Caribbean. Allspice is so named because it imparts the flavor of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon. An excellent addition to marinades, allspice is also used to flavor cured and jerked meat, desserts, and sauces. It is also an ingredient in gingerbread. The finest allspice trees are thought to be grown in Jamaica. Use the spice sparingly to avoid overpowering other ingredients. Cinnamon is ground from the curled bark of the evergreen cinnamon and cassia trees throughout Asia, India, and Sri Lanka. Cinnamon is sold ground or in sticks. A popular flavoring for cookies, pies, desserts, candies, and coffees, cinnamon can be used to season meats, pasta, and marinades. It ginger is popular in Asian and Indian cuisine. Ground ginger also is used in many baked goods and desserts. Ginger is the basis for ginger beer and ginger ale. Pickled ginger root is an...

Sample Requirements

For positive and negative controls, grow bacterial cells under the optimal conditions for the organism to be detected, either on solid or in liquid media. For N. meningitidis and S. pneumoniae, this is usually on Colombia blood agar with horse blood and, for H. influenzae, usually on chocolate blood agar, overnight at 37XC in 5 CO2. Appropriate media should be used for these organisms if grown in liquid media, such as brain heart infusion broth. If grown on solid media, emulsify approx 12 colonies in 100 pL of sterile distilled water. If using liquid media, take 100 pL of well-mixed culture. If using clinical samples, an aliquot of 100 pL of fluid is required.
