  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • The present disclosure relates to packaging. More specifically, the present disclosure relates to a cap and container packaging for dispensing, administering or proportioning suitable food products, for example, in the form of particulate, granular and powder materials from the packaging containing same. The materials can be any of a variety of dispensable materials such as, for example, baby formula, powdered beverages, flour, coffee, sugar, etc. It should be appreciated that the cap and container packaging can be adapted for dispensing or administering liquids or viscous materials as well.
  • In an embodiment illustrated in FIGS. 1-4, the present disclosure provides a packaging 10 for administrating a consumable product such as a particulate material. Packaging 10 includes a cap 20 having a base panel 22, four side panels 24 extending from base panel 22, and a threaded portion 26 extending from a bottom side 28 of base panel 22. Base panel 22 defines a hole 30 therethrough for the consumable product to pass through. Hole 30 can be any suitable shape and size to accommodate a desired amount of food to be poured through by a user. A hinged lid 40 is attached to cap 20 and can hingedly open and close to cover hole 30 of base panel 22. Packaging 10 further includes a container 50 that is releasably attachable to cap 20.
  • Hinged lid 40 can be attached to base panel 22 of cap 20 using any suitable mechanism. For example, hinged lid 40 can include one or more pegs 44 that fit into one or more slots 46 of base panel 22 as shown in FIG. 3 (e.g., via a snap fit). Hinged lid 40 can then be hingedly opened and closed with respect to cap 20.
  • As shown in FIG. 2, base panel 22 of cap 20 can include a recessed portion 60 that is so constructed and arranged to accommodate hinged lid 40 therein. The shape of recessed portion 60 can match the shape of hinged lid 40. For example, recessed portion 60 allows hinged lid 40 to be fit within base panel 22 so that no portion of hinged lid 40 is above cap 20 when hinged lid 40 is in a closed position as shown in FIG. 1. Cap 20 can also include rounded corners 36. These features provide improved aesthetics to packaging 10.
  • Side panels 24 can be tapered outwardly from base panel 22 of cap 20. As further shown in FIGS. 1-2, one of side panels 24 (e.g., a front panel) of cap 20 can include a recessed portion 62. Recessed portion 62 allows a user to more easily access and open hinged lid 40. Hinged lid 40 can include an extended sealing wall 42 that conforms to a border or edge 32 of hole 30 of cap 20. This provides an additional sealing mechanism to keep the contents of packaging 10 from leaking out of hinged lid 40 when hinged lid 40 is in the closed position.
  • Container 50 includes a top panel 52, a bottom panel 54 and four side panels 56 extending between top panel 52 and bottom panel 54. Top panel 52 includes a threaded portion 58 extending from top panel 52 that defines a hole in which a product in container 50 can be poured through. Threaded portion 58 of container 50 should match threaded portion 26 of cap 20 so that cap 20 can be twisted off of container 50 as shown in FIG. 4. Cap 20 is therefore removable from container 50 to allow the removal of a desired amount of product in container 50. Alternatively, hinged lid 40 is openable so that a desired amount of product can be poured therethrough by a user.
  • Container 50 defines an interior compartment (not shown). Although the panels 52, 54 and 56 of container 50 are illustrated as being substantially rectangular in shape, panels 52, 54 and 56 of container 50 may define any shape that is known in the art. For example, panels 52, 54 and 56 may be square, rectangular, oval (e.g., oblong), triangular, etc., so long as container 50 is capable of housing a consumable product within an interior compartment. For ease of reference, and with this embodiment, container 50 is a rectangular body as shown in FIG. 1.
  • As further shown in FIGS. 1 and 4, one or more of the four side panels 56 of container 50 are recessed. This not only provides an aesthetically pleasing design, but also allows a user to grab container 50 more easily for handling and pouring. Container 50 can also include rounded corners 60.
  • Cap 20 is sized and shaped to fit with container 50. Container 50 is not limited to any particular size so long as consumable products may be contained therein and may be easily handled by a user. The dimensions of cap 20 and container 50 can be such that they have identical or substantially similar peripheral shapes so as to make packaging 10 appear as a cohesive unit as shown in FIG. 1. The skilled artisan will appreciate that the dimensions of cap 20 and container 50 may vary as desired or in accordance with manufacturing specifications or in accordance with the size and shape of the consumable products contained therein.
  • Cap 20 is not limited to any particular shape or size, so long as cap 20 is capable of sealingly fitting to container 50 to prevent loss or contamination of a consumable product housed therein. In alternative embodiments, besides using threaded portions 26 and 58, cap 20 may be mated with container 50 by snap-fitting, pressure-fitting, friction fitting, etc. Cap 20 may be fitted to container 50 in a resealing manner so that each time cap 20 is removed from container 50, it may be placed on container 50 again in a sealed manner.
  • The surface of cap 20 and/or container 50 can include any suitable gripping textures or portions. The gripping texture or portions may be, for example, a rough surface or dimple grips and may have a shape such as a circle, square, rectangle, triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon, hexadecagon, icosagon, star, ellipse, semicircle, crescent, flower, or combinations thereof.
  • Packaging 10 can include any indicia or instructions printed on a surface of cap 20 and/or container 50. The indicia may include, for example, colors, numbers, letters, logos, advertisements, branding information, nutritional information, product information, manufacturer information, etc. The indicia may be printed on a pressure sensitive material, printed directly on cap 20 and/or container 50, printed on a removable closure, attached as a sticker, etc. The indicia may be placed on cap 20 and/or container 50 by a method such as embossing, debossing, printing, engraving, a sticker, or combinations thereof. The instructions can depict or describe, for example, how to serve or administer the contents of packaging 10.
  • Cap 20 and container 50 can be made from any suitable materials such as polymers, plastics or other synthetic materials. For example, cap 20 and/or container 50 can be made from a polyethylene material such as linear low density polyethylene or a suitable polypropylene. In a preferred embodiment, cap 20 and/or container 50 is made from polyethylene terephthalate.
  • Cap 20 and/or container 50 may be formed using conventional thermoforming or molding processes including, but not limited to, injection molding, injection blow molding and extrusion blow molding. Alternatively, cap 20 and/or container 50 may be manufactured from non-plastic materials including, but not limited to, cardboard, metal, styrofoam, etc.
  • In alternative embodiments, any suitable portion of cap 20 and/or container 50 can be either transparent or translucent so that a consumer can readily discern what types of products are housed in packaging 10. Alternatively, at least a portion of cap 20 and/or container 50 may be opaque. Cap 20 may be manufactured from a same or different material as container 50 and may be translucent while container 50 is opaque, or vice versa.
  • In an embodiment, packaging 10 includes a nutritional product such as an infant cereal product stored therein. The nutritional product or infant cereal product, for example, can include any suitable ingredients such as a starch source and/or a protein source. Suitable starch sources are, for example, grains such as corn, rice, wheat, beets, barley, oats, soy, and mixtures of these. Suitable protein sources may be selected from any suitable animal or vegetable protein source including, for example, meat meal, bone meal, fish meal, soy protein concentrates, milk proteins, gluten, and the like. The choice of the starch and protein sources will be largely determined by the nutritional needs of the infant, palatability considerations, and the type of cereal product produced. Various other ingredients, for example, sugar, salt, spices, seasonings, vitamins, minerals, flavoring agents, fats and the like may also be incorporated into the infant cereal product as desired.
  • The nutritional product or infant cereal product can include fat sources such as canola oil, corn oil, palm olein, high oleic sunflower oil and high oleic safflower oil. The essential fatty acids linoleic and α-linolenic acid may also be added as may small amounts of oils containing high quantities of preformed arachidonic acid and docosahexaenoic acid such as fish oils or microbial oils.
  • The nutritional product or infant cereal product can further include a suitable carbohydrate such as, for example, sucrose, lactose, glucose, fructose, corn syrup solids, saccharose, maltodextrins, starch and mixtures thereof Dietary fiber may also be added if desired. Dietary fiber passes through the small intestine undigested by enzymes and functions as a natural bulking agent and laxative. Dietary fiber may be soluble or insoluble or a blend of the two types. Suitable sources of dietary fiber include soy, pea, oat, pectin, guar gum, gum arabic, fructooligosaccharides and galacto-oligosaccharides.
  • The nutritional product or infant cereal product can also include minerals and micronutrients such as trace elements and vitamins. Examples of minerals, vitamins and other micronutrients optionally present in the nutritional compositions include vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, vitamin E, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin D, folic acid, inositol, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid, choline, calcium, phosphorous, iodine, iron, magnesium, copper, zinc, manganese, chloride, potassium, sodium, selenium, chromium, molybdenum, taurine, and L-carnitine. Minerals are usually added in salt form.
  • It should be understood that various changes and modifications to the presently preferred embodiments described herein will be apparent to those skilled in the art. Such changes and modifications can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the present subject matter and without diminishing its intended advantages. It is therefore intended that such changes and modifications be covered by the appended claims.
