A filled snack product includes a first sheet having a first surface. A plurality of filling lines are disposed upon the first surface of the first sheet. Each of the plurality of filling lines are spaced to define a void between each of the adjacent filling lines. A second sheet is disposed over the first sheet and secured to at least a portion of the first sheet to sandwich the plurality of spaced filling lines between the first and second sheets. A plurality of docking holes are disposed upon the first and second sheets. The plurality of docking holes and the plurality of spaced filling lines allow for the pinning of the first and second sheets at the voids disposed between the spaced filling lines and further for the release to steam and/or gas from the filled snack product during heating to minimize puffing of the filled snack product.

The present invention relates to methods for preparing high protein flakes comprising forming a protein into a protein pellet and introducing the protein pellet and a food component into a cooker. The protein pellet and the food component are cooked in the cooker to give a cooked food product. The food product is then formed into a high protein flake.

The packaging system forms a transportable container for bulk goods having stretch wrap that is spirally wrapped about a bottom support and bulk goods to define the transportable container. The stretch wrap contacts at least a portion of the bulk goods to squeeze and lock together the bulk goods. During filling, the bottom support of the transportable container lowers as the transportable container is formed to accommodate additional bulk goods. The stretch wrap is prestretched from a non-stretched state to a stretched state prior to disposing the wrap about a slip frame former in the stretched state. The wrap returns to its non-stretched state as it is disengaged from the slip frame former to squeeze and lock together the bulk goods disposed therein. The packaging system results in a transportable container that is optimally packed and shaped for the efficient filling of a truck for shipping.

A transportable container for flowable bulk goods includes a bottom support and a stretch wrap spirally wrapped around the bottom support and extending vertically in relationship to the bottom support. Bulk goods are disposed within the stretch wrap and at least of portion of the bulk goods are disposed in direct contact with the stretch wrap to squeeze the bulk goods together and generate hoop forces for stabilizing the bulk goods in the transportable container. The transportable container has a shape that varies radially in vertical relationship to the bottom support for adjusting the hoop forces vertically along the transportable container. The varied shape of the transportable container can be, for example, tapered, hour-glass shaped, or pumpkin shaped.

A transportable container (20) for flowable bulk goods is formed by vertically- spacing a slip frame former (24) from a bottom support (72). An outer wrap (40,58,70) is disposed around the bottom support (72) and a portion of at least one former wall (56) to initially form the transportable container (20) prior to the addition of the bulk goods into the transportable container (20). At least one of the slip frame former (24) and the bottom support (72) moves vertically relative to other in response to the fill level of the bulk goods. As the fill level increases in the transportable container (20), previously disposed portions of outer wrap (40,68,70) are disengaged from the slip frame former (24) to squeeze the filled portions of the transportable container (20) and lock together the bulk goods disposed in the transportable container (20).

The heat recovery system includes an oven having a treatment air with a treatment air temperature and a treatment air dew point temperature to treat a product or product in process. A zone outlet exhaust waste treatment air following the treatment of the product. A preheating zone includes a preheating inlet for the introduction of preheating air having a preheating air temperature and a preheating air dew point temperature to preheat the product. A transfer duct extends between the zone outlet of the oven and the preheating zone to transfer a portion of waste treatment air from the oven to the preheating zone to create the preheating air to preheat additional product. The preheating air preheats the product in the preheating zone to a product temperature that is at least equal to the treatment air dew point temperature to eliminate surface condensation on the product during treatment in the oven.

Disclosed are nonlimiting embodiments comprising a novel process for forming and shaping crunchy granola food products. The process comprises using rotary molding processes to form and shape a granola mass into a variety of desired shapes. The granola mass is able to be rotary molded as a result of use of a unique binder composition that comprises at least one of pre-gelatinized starch or hydrocolloid gum in the binder composition. The pre-gelatinized starch and/or hydrocolloid gum enables the binder viscosity to increase and increases the tackiness of the granola mass such that it can be formed by a rotary molder and such that it releases from the mold as a unitary piece of shaped and formed granola food product.

A resealable packaging container for housing goods includes a wrapper of a flexible material that encloses the goods within. A perforated panel is cut into the wrapper for movement between open and closed positions. The perforated panel defines a wrapper opening in the wrapper when the perforated panel is in the open position to allow access to the goods disposed within the resealable packaging container. A pressure sensitive coated collar adhesively engages the inner surface of the wrapper underneath the perforated panel to partially surround the wrapper opening. The pressure sensitive coated collar includes an open central portion that is disposed inwardly of the wrapper opening and an exposed region that extends between the wrapper opening and the open central portion. The perforated panel reseals to the exposed region of the pressure sensitive coated collar in the closed position.
