DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "North America Confectionery Market (2016-2022)" report to their offering. Demand for sugar-free organic products is high in demand. According to Hudson Institute, Inc., 82% of the sales growth amid Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation member companies such as Kraft Foods and Nestle U.S. was due to lower calorie food products in 2013. In the coming years, rising demand for sugar free organic product could help in the growth of Confectionery market. Market competitors are coming up with new strategies; by associating film promoters for the ad campaigns to attract more and more customers. The idea is to increase customer engagement, especially among children. Brands such as Push Pops and Tic Toe have done partnerships with movie releases. On the other hand, another brand Skittles have partnered with Marvel for the Captain America. The idea is providing opportunity for companies in driving consumer engagement. Another trend which is getting popular among the population is vending machine. Huge demand for vending machines has been seen so far. One of the examples is Coke freestyle that is also very popular. It has gained attention of many manufactures and also resulted in completing consumers need. Malls, retail stores, movie theaters, and airports are now putting vending machines rapidly with different ranges of products and categories. The key players operating in the confectionery market are Mars Inc., Nestle, Mondelez International, Inc., Ferrero, Ezaki Glico Co., Ltd., Delfi Limited, Lindt & Sprüngli AG, and Lotte Group.

Patent
Omikenshi Co., Ezaki Glico Co. and Kanto Natural Gas Development Co. | Date: 2012-04-25

Amethod for producing an amylose-containing rayon fiber, comprising the steps of: mixing an aqueous alkaline solution of amylose with viscose to obtain a mixed liquid, spinning the mixed liquid to obtain an amylose-containing rayon fiber, and bringing the amylose-containing rayon fiber into contact with iodine or polyiodide ions, thereby allowing an amylose in the amylose-containing rayon fiber to make a clathrate including the iodine or polyiodide ions, wherein the amylose is an enzymatically synthesized amylose having a weight average molecular weight of 3 x 10^(4) or more and 2 x 10^(5) or less. A method for collecting iodine from branckish water with high efficiency utilizing the amylase-containing rayon fibers.


Patent
Kagoshima University and Ezaki Glico Co. | Date: 2012-03-14

An object of the present invention is to provide a uronic acid-containing glucan or a modified product thereof. The glucuronic acid-containing glucan of the present invention is a glucuronic acid-containing glucan in which a glucuronic acid residue is bound to at least one non-reducing end of a glucan, and the glucan is a branched -1,4 glucan or a linear -1,4 glucan. The glucuronic acid-containing glucan of the present invention can be provided by allowing -glucan phosphorylase derived from Aquifex aeolicus VF5 to act on glucuronic acid-1-phosphate to thereby transfer a glucuronic acid residue to the non-reducing end of the receptor glucan.


Patent

Provided is a preparation method for phycocyanin, including: adding chitosan to a suspension of cyanobacteria containing phycocyanin; and filtering the suspension.


An object of the present invention is to provide a glucan containing at least one residue selected from an N-acetylglucosamine residue and a galactose residue, and a modified product. The branched glucan of the present invention is a branched glucan wherein the branched glucan has a plurality of non-reducing ends and at least one residue selected from an N-acetylglucosamine residue and a galactose residue is bound via an -1,4-bond to each of two or more non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan, but neither an N-acetylglucosamine residue nor a galactose residue is present at the position other than the non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan.


An object of the present invention is to provide a glucosamine-containing glucan, a modified product and a conjugate thereof. The glucosamine-containing glucan of the present invention is a glucosamine-containing glucan wherein the glucan has a plurality of non-reducing ends and at least one glucosamine residue is bound via an -1,4-bond to each of two or more non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan, but no glucosamine residue is present at a position other than the non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan, wherein the degree of polymerization of the glucan is 15 or more and 4 x 10^(5) or less. Theglucosamine-containingglucan of the present invention can be provided by allowing an -glucan phosphorylase to act on an aqueous solution comprising a branched -1,4-glucan and glucosamine-1-phosphate.


Provided is an external preparation for skin, comprising a phosphorylated saccharide. The phosphorylated saccharide may be an inorganic salt of a phosphorylated saccharide. The phosphorylated saccharide may be a calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron or sodium salt. Also provided is an external preparation for skin, comprising a phosphorylated saccharide and a second component, wherein the second component is selected from the group consisting of moisturizing agents, whitening components, ultraviolet absorbents, anti-inflammatory agents, cell-activating agents and antioxidants. The moisturizing agent may be ascorbic acid or an ascorbic acid derivative.


An object of the present invention is to provide a glucan containing at least one residue selected from an N-acetylglucosamine residue and a galactose residue, and a modified product. The branched glucan of the present invention is a branched glucan wherein the branched glucan has a plurality of non-reducing ends and at least one residue selected from an N-acetylglucosamine residue and a galactose residue is bound via an -1,4-bond to each of two or more non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan, but neither an N-acetylglucosamine residue nor a galactose residue is present at the position other than the non-reducing ends of the branched -1,4-glucan.
