Lactose-Free Milk (Clark): U.S. Patent and U.S. and PCT Patent Applications

It is estimated that 30 to 50 million Americans are lactose-intolerant. While those of Northern European descent are most able to digest lactose, those of Asian and African descent stop producing lactose – the enzyme required to digest milk – as they age. There is a multi-billion dollar market for lactose-free milk in the U.S., Asia and Africa. The lactose-free milk products on the market today are produced by one of two processes. Some are produced by hydrolysis, the addition of enzymes to the milk that convert the lactose to sugars that remain in the milk. The other process is ultra-filtration that removes some of the lactose but leaves the remaining lactose to be converted to sugar.

The process covered by this portfolio removes ALL lactose from milk in a single process, creating a low-calorie, lactose-free skim milk. At that point, a second process can be used to reduce the Phosphorous and Potassium content in the milk. The result of this patented process is a lactose-free, low-phosphorous milk with the taste and texture of real milk!

This portfolio includes U.S. Patent No. 10,285,413 for a “Process for the preparation of lactose-free and reduced phosphorus skim milk” plus U.S. Patent Application 20190239526 and PCT Patent Application 2018009486. This portfolio would be a critical acquisition for any milk producer seeking to add a lactose-free product that has the taste and texture of real milk!

Health-Promoting Frozen Dessert (Derin): International Patent Portfolio

There’s a wonderful song in The Sound of Music that claims that “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” Considerable effort has been put into making the ingestion of medicines and nutritional supplements more appetizing, from chewable tablets to cherry-flavored cough syrup. The struggle continues to create a delivery system for vitamins, minerals and supplements that is palatable for those who must take them.

This patent portfolio addresses exactly that need by creating a frozen dessert that is composed of natural ingredients and to which a health-promoting substance can be added. The first U.S. Patent Application describes a frozen dessert-based delivery system as the means to convey health-promoting substances of an herbal nature into the human body. The second U.S. Patent Application specifically addresses the delivery of collagen peptides. The frozen dessert recipe may consist of a combination of butter, water, milk protein concentrate, maltitol, erythritol, organic agave inulin, xanthan gum, locust bean gum, guar gum and a flavor ingredient plus a vitamin, mineral or other supplement. Health-promoting substances added to the frozen dessert could consist of – but are not limited to – kava kava root, damiana flowers, bilberry, Echinacea flower, Garcinia cambogia, lemon balm and many others.

Patent Portfolio

This portfolio would be a strategic acquisition for any supplier of vitamins, minerals, nutritional supplements or medicine seeking to expand the delivery system for its products. The acquirer can take over prosecution of the patent applications and file continuations to create additional patents fine tuned to exactly the acquirer’s products. The next set of continuation applications will include Cannabis extracts in the list of the health-promoting substances that can be delivered via frozen dessert.
