The present invention provides a high-moisture-content gummi candy as a novel fruity confection, including a gummi candy body having a moisture value of not lower than 20% by weight, a pH of not higher than 4.0, and a water activity value of not higher than 0.86 and a collagen casing coating and encapsulating the gummi candy body. Even with a high moisture content, namely, even with a moisture value of the gummi candy body as high as not lower than 20% by weight, the high-moisture-content gummi candy is remarkably reduced in syneresis, surface melting, stickiness, and the like, has an excellent shape retention ability, has a fresh flavor and an elastic texture, and is suitable for distribution at normal temperature.

Patent
Teikyo University and Uha Mikakuto Co. | Date: 2015-05-28

There are provided an oral composition and a confection that exhibit activity equivalent to or higher than that of a decanoic acid-containing composition, and a method for producing such an oral composition. The oral composition and the confection contain at least three ingredients: cinnamon, low molecular proanthocyanidin, and menthol. The method for producing, the oral composition includes the steps of: dissolving at least 0.2 to 1.0% by weight of low molecular proanthocyanidin in 0.2 to 2.0% by weight of at least one water-soluble solvent selected from glycerin or propylene glycol to form a solution; kneading at least 0.1 to 0.5% by weight of cinnamon and 0.1 to 0.4% by weight of menthol into sugar-free base dough to prepare candy- or gel-like kneaded dough; and mixing the solution with the kneaded dough.


This invention relates to an agent for inducing differentiation of white adipocytes into brown-like adipocytes comprising a compound which is a cyclization reaction product of a hydroxystilbene and which is represented by Formula (1): (wherein each of R_(1 )to R_(8 )is a hydrogen atom, a hydroxyl group, a saturated or unsaturated, straight or branched alkoxy group having 1 to 10 carbon atoms, or a saturated or unsaturated, straight or branched alkyl group having 1 to 10 carbon atoms, and R_(1 )to R_(8 )may be same or different), or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof.


Provided are a water activity reducing agent including two or more carbohydrates selected from the group consisting of sorbitol (A), glucose (B), xylitol (C), erythritol (D), and glycerin (E), a food product including the water activity reducing agent, and a method for reducing the water activity of a food product using the water activity reducing agent.
