Title
(DE) VERFAHREN ZUR VERARBEITUNG VON NÜSSEN ZU SPEISEZWECKEN UND DARAUS ERHALTENE EXTRAKTIONSPRODUKTE
(EN) METHODS OF PROCESSING CULINARY NUTS AND EXTRACTION PRODUCTS OBTAINED BY THE SAME
(FR) PROCÉDÉS DE TRAITEMENT DE NOIX ET PRODUITS D'EXTRACTION AINSI OBTENUS
Abstract
(EN) Described are methods and/or techniques for the production of culinary nut extracts, which simultaneously result in extracts and non-dairy products with favorable organoleptic properties, tasty appearance and high yields of nutritionally useful components, and which may be performed in a simple, rapid and cost-effective manner. In addition, the described methods are capable of processing in-shell culinary nuts to make effective use of the high contents of bioactive materials present in shell material. Specifically, the invention relates to a method for processing culinary nuts, comprising the steps of: a) adding water to culinary nuts to form a suspension; b) wet grinding said suspension in one or more steps to an average particle size of less than 100 µm; and c) separating the suspension into at least a solid phase comprising culinary nut solids and a liquid phase comprising culinary nut milk. Furthermore, a nut milk, edible nut-based products comprising the solid phase obtained by the aforementioned method or the nut milk, as well as nut oil extracts are disclosed.
