Abstract

See full text

A canned dough product includes at least one dough product loaded in a lower compartment of a container and at least one additional ingredient provided in an upper compartment, with the upper and lower compartments being spaced by a separator. The dough expands upon proofing in the container, causing the separator to shift and vary the volumes of the compartments. The expanding dough abuts a central region of the separator, causing the separator to flex, engage an inner surface of the container and become fixed in the container, while the lower compartment becomes fluidly sealed from the upper compartment and different pressures are established in the compartments.
