The object of the present invention is to provide a method of manufacturing solid milk having better water solubility and keeping suitable hardness even when the powdered milk, which is hard to mold, with low free fat is used. Solid milk has been manufactured by using powdered milk having small particle diameter which was passed through a sieve in order to obtain homogeneous solid milk. The present invention is based on the knowledge that solid milk having suitable hardness and water solubility can be obtained by using powdered milk having large particle diameter which have not been used for manufacturing the solid milk because it has been sieved.

There is disclosed a method for manufacturing baked confectionery, comprising: a step of adding water and polyglycerol polyricinoleate to an fat-based confectionery dough; a step of molding the resulting fat-based confectionery dough into a predetermined shape; and a step of baking the molded product. According to this manufacturing method, handleability and workability during molding of the fat-based confectionery dough can be ensured, while improving the shape retention during baking of the fat-based confectionery.


Provided is a production method for a concentrated product, using a freeze-concentration method having a high yield rate (low loss rate) that is practically applicable, as required in large-scale (commercial scale) production. The production method for concentrated product using the freeze-concentration method comprises: an ice crystal generation step in which a fluid to be treated is cooled, ice crystals of said fluid are generated in said fluid, and a mixed fluid to be treated is formed wherein said mixed fluid to be treated is comprised of said ice crystals and a concentrated fluid produced from said fluid to be treated by generating said ice crystals in said fluid thereby said fluid is concentrated; and an ice crystal separation step in which said mixed fluid is separated into said concentrated fluid to be treated and said ice crystals, and said separated concentrated fluid be treated is retrieved.


The present invention addresses the problem of providing an antibody titer-increasing agent, such as an adjuvant, capable of sustaining an effect achieved by, for example, vaccination, which is an antibody titer-increasing agent such as an adjuvant that is safe, convenient and economical and can be easily taken irrespective of age, and a method for manufacturing the same. A method for increasing an antibody titer and a method for enhancing the effect of a vaccine, each method comprising using Lactobacillus delbrueckii subspecies bulgaricus OLL1073R-1 or a culture thereof; and an antibody titer-increasing agent such as an adjuvant that comprises Lactobacillus delbrueckii subspecies bulgaricus OLL1073R-1 or a culture thereof.


The present invention relates to: fermented milk that does not undergo the increase in an acid level; a method for producing the fermented milk; Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus OLL1171 (NITE BP-01569) which is a lactic acid production strain useful for the production of fermented milk that does not undergo the increase in an acid level; and a method for screening for a lactic acid production strain useful for the production of fermented milk that does not undergo the increase in an acid level.

Provided is a method for producing fructooligosaccharide, wherein, in a reaction where fructooligosaccharide is produced by reacting -fructofuranosidase with sucrose, and in a reaction step where glucose by-produced by the above reaction is decreased by glucose oxidase, an amount of dissolved oxygen is adjusted to 2 to 8 ppm. This method enables fructooligosaccharides to be produced inexpensively and efficiently.


A method for producing concentrated products by using a membrane-concentration method and a freeze-concentration method that efficiently reduce (practically applicable) processing time (concentration time) as required in large-scale (commercial-scale) production. The method using a membrane-concentration method and a freeze-concentration method comprises: a membrane-concentration step in which a fluid to be treated is cooled and a membrane-concentrated fluid is prepared by membrane-concentrating the solid content concentration thereof by more than 1.5 times; an ice crystal generation step in which said membrane-concentrated fluid is cooled, ice crystals of said membrane-concentrated fluid are generated in said membrane-concentrated fluid, and a mixed fluid to be treated is formed wherein said mixed fluid to be treated is comprised of said ice crystals and a concentrated fluid to be treated produced from said membrane-concentrated fluid by generating said ice crystals in said membrane-concentrated fluid thereby said membrane-concentrated fluid is concentrated; and an ice crystal separation step in which said mixed fluid is separated into said concentrated fluid to be treated and said ice crystals, and said separated concentrated fluid to be treated is retrieved.


Provided is a method for stabilizing DHNA or a vitamin contained in a food, a beverage and or like under an environment which can be subjected to natural light or artificial light, e.g. a transparent container, without requiring the use of a container or a packaged article each having a high light-blocking property. Particularly provided is a method for stabilizing DHNA or a virtamin, in which only ultraviolet ray is blocked under an environment which can be subjected to natural light and/or artificial light. Also provided is a method for stabilizing DHNA or a vitamin, in which only ultraviolet ray is blocked by a colorless and transparent film having an ultraviolet ray blocking function. Still also provided is a method for stabilizing DHNA or a vitamin, in which only ultraviolet ray is blocked by a lighting having an ultraviolet ray blocking function.
