A pasta product can be formed from a low protein flour by blending the low protein flour with water to form a pasta dough. In some examples, the pasta dough is then hot extruded to produce an extruded pasta before being dried. In contrast to cold extrusion where the goal is to minimize starch gelatinization while shaping the pasta dough, hot extrusion can cause starch within the low protein flour to gelatinize. The gelatinized starch may help compensate for the lack of protein network structure caused by using a low protein flour.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
