Patent Issued For Making “No-Bake” Granola Bars

September 24, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
General Mills scientists have been issued a U.S. patent for a method of making a “no-bake” granola or snack food product that reduces waste and boosts processing efficiency. The no-bake products resulting from the process – granola bars, clusters, cereal, instant hot cereal and snacks – have a “toasted appearance and flavor”, according to the patent document. The process involves mixing ingredients – grain, nuts, seeds, fruit, etc. – at high temperatures, adding a sweetener, then cooling to room temperature. The resulting product is not sticky and requires no further drying or processing.
