◾ US Patent No. 7,666,460 (Feb. 23, 2010), A. Keogh, assigned to Cadbury Holdings Ltd., Middlesex, England.
This is a process for producing a set expanded food. It requires passing a soft expanded food composition at a specific temperature and pressure into a second area with lower temperature and pressure. The initial food composition may be in a partially expanded condition and contain a vaporizable expanding agent. The pressure and temperature differences help the food further expand by evaporation of the vaporizable expanding agent.
