Title: MESOMORPHIC SUGAR PRODUCTS
Abstract:
The present invention is a new mesomorphic polycrystallite product and a process for making the same. In the present invention amorphous sugar is transformed to a mesomorphic product having polycrystallites therein by a completely anhydrous process rather than by hydrating and then dehydrating the sugar. The product of the present invention is unique in shape and size, and possesses a high degree of uniformity. The properties of the polycrystallite make it possible to replace some or all of the fat in comestibles such as frostings and fillings and to provide fondants of extraordinarily fine grain.
