Description

[DESCRIPTION]

[Invention Title]

INSTANT FOOD PACKAGE

[Technical Field]

The present invention relates to an instant food package.

[Background Art]

The demand for instant food is continuously increasing, since it reduces the time

spent on cooking for the busy people of modern times. Where the instant food is instant

noodles in the form of noodles in a pouch or noodles in a bowl, the buoyancy generated as

the hot liquid rises in the convection process causes the instant noodles to generally rise,

whereby the upper portions of the noodles are put in contact with the atmosphere and the

lower portions of the noodles are put in contact with the hot liquid, so that the noodles are

cooked beginning from the lower portions.

Thus, with conventional instant noodles, there is the inconvenience of having to

turn the upper and portions of the noodles using chopsticks while cooking, in order to

cook the noodles uniformly and reduce the cooking time.

Also, as a separate eating utensil, such as a pair of chopsticks, a fork, or a spoon,

etc., is required to separate the solid pieces of the cooked instant food from the hot liquid broth for consumption, there is the inconvenience of having to carry a separate eating

utensil together with the conventional instant food package, and the consumption of the

instant food may be a difficulty for foreigners, the handicapped, or patients, who are not

adept at using a particular eating utensil.

Related art on instant noodles, a type of instant food, has been disclosed,

including the manufacture of functional noodles having green tea, rice, fish, and tofu, etc.,

added and mixed in (Korean Patent Application Nos. 10-1989-0015568,

10-1993-0006029, 10-1994-0016679, 10-1997-0063573, and 10-2005-0108381), and the

average length of the above patents' or a typical noodle is about 40 ~ 70 cm, which allows

easy immediate consumption when using chopsticks, but when a fork is used, there is the

inconvenience that the noodles have to be wound repeatedly around the fork to prevent

the noodles from slipping.

Also, since the liquid broth of the instant food may leak to the outside to be in

contact with clothing, etc., when the instant food is carried or moved, a user cannot

consume the instant food containing broth in a safe and easy manner while moving.

[Disclosure]

[Technical Problem]

An aspect of the present invention provides an instant food package which

allows easy consumption and reduced cooking time. Also, another aspect of the present invention provides an instant food package

that allows easy carrying.

[Technical Solution]

One aspect of the present invention provides an instant food package which

includes an instant food cooked by hot liquid, a heat-resistant container holding the

instant food inside and having an opening on one side, and a stopper coupled to the

opening and configured to allow the opening and closing of the opening, where the

instant food moves in correlation with the flow of the liquid and is consumed while

poured out through the opening in an opened state, and the liquid is prevented by the

stopper in a closed state from spilling out of the container when it is turned or shaken.

Turning or shaking the container may facilitate the heat transfer by convention between

the instant food and the hot liquid, to reduce the cooking time.

The instant food may include various broth-type foods, such as oden, flour cake

broth, rice cake broth, bone and beef stew, spicy stew, meat broth, vegetable broth, green

vegetable broth, bean paste broth, and broth rice, etc., or instant noodles, that include

liquid broth and solid pieces, where the instant noodles may be any one selected from a

group consisting of ramen, udon, Chinese noodles, and wheat flour noodles.

When the instant food is selected from an instant noodle group consisting of

ramen, udon, Chinese noodles, and wheat flour noodles, the length of the instant noodles may be 0.1 cm to 5 cm or lower, to allow easy consumption directly through the opening

by the user by tilting the container.

To limit the viscosity of the broth for better flow of the instant noodles, the

weight of the instant noodles having lengths from 1 cm to 5 cm or lower may be 90

weight% or more of the total weight of the instant noodles.

So that the user may hold and carry the instant food package and consume the

instant food readily with one hand, the container may be formed in the shape of an

elongated bottle or a pack in which the length is greater than the width, and on the outer

surface of the container, an insulation layer may further be included for blocking the heat

transferred from the hot liquid.

A heat-shrinking film may be equipped on the outer surface of the container or

the stopper, that is shrunk by the heat of the liquid to or below a predetermined length

corresponding to the cooking completion time of the instant food.

So that the hot liquid or additives such as flavoring, etc., may readily be inserted

into the container, the stopper may be detachably coupled to the opening in a screw type

configuration, and when a straw is further included for sucking in the instant food or the

broth formed by the liquid, the instant food remaining on the inner walls of the container

may readily be consumed using the straw.

A catching member coupled to the opening or the stopper may further be

included that closes a portion of the opening, where the catching member and the stopper may form a holding space, and the instant food may be caught on the catching member as

the liquid having the instant food mixed in enters the holding space, so that the user may

selectively consume only that which is caught on the catching member, that is, the instant

food separated from the broth.

A catching groove, for holding the instant food by a predetermined volume

suitable for a single instance of consumption, or a catching shelf, for allowing the instant

food entering the holding space to be readily caught, may be formed on the catching

member. An inclination portion that provides a decreased flow resistance to the liquid

may be formed on the catching member, so that the liquid having the instant food mixed

in may readily be drawn into the holding space.

[Advantageous Effects]

As described above, with an instant food package according to a certain aspect

of the present invention, a user may consume an instant food mixed in a liquid broth by

gulping it as a drink or by using a catching member coupled to the container packaging

the instant food to separate the solid foods from the liquid broth, just as in the case of

using a conventional eating utensil such as chopsticks, a fork, or a spoon, etc., so that the

consumption of the instant food is made easy for foreigners, the handicapped, or patients,

who cannot use an eating utensil with ease.

Also, since the instant food is held inside a container having a shape that is easy for a user to hold with one hand, and the opening on one side of the container is coupled

and sealed with a stopper, the liquid broth inside the container is not leaked to the outside

for improved portability, whereby a user may readily consume the instant food while

moving.

In addition, when the instant food is instant noodles, the noodles of short length

may be reused, which are regarded as loss in conventional instant noodle manufacturing

processes, to provide the economical benefit of reducing losses in materials.

300: opening

400: bottle

500: instant noodle [Mode for Invention]

Embodiments of the instant food package according to certain aspects of the

present invention will be described below in more detail with reference to the

accompanying drawings, in which those components are rendered the same reference

numeral that are the same or are in correspondence, regardless of the figure number, and

redundant explanations are omitted.

Fig. 1 is an exploded perspective view of an instant food package according to a

first disclosed embodiment of the present invention. As illustrated in Fig. 1, an instant

food package according to the first disclosed embodiment is composed of a heat-resistant

bottle 400 having an opening 300 on one side, instant noodles 500 held inside the bottle

400, a flavoring package 200, and a stopper 100 coupled such that the opening 300 is

sealed.

The instant noodles 500 may be wave-treated noodles, and are cooked by heat

transfer with the hot liquid inserted through the opening 300 of the bottle 400. The instant

noodles 500 may advantageously be manufactured to have lengths from 0.1 cm to 5 cm or

lower, or even more advantageously lengths from 0.1 cm to 3 cm, so that the heat transfer

due to the convection of the liquid is made easy and so that the cooked instant noodles

500 may readily be consumed as a drink one mouthful at a time. The flavoring package 200 may be attached to one side of the bottle 400 or the

stopper 100 or held inside the bottle 400, and additives such as dried meats and vegetables,

condiments, etc., are contained in the flavoring package 200.

As illustrated in Figs. 1 to 2, an instant food package according to the first

disclosed embodiment is sealed as the protrusion 410 formed around the opening 300 of

the bottle 400 and the groove 111 (Fig. 3) formed in the stopper 100 are coupled in a

screw type configuration. Since cold outside air is not drawn inside the bottle 400 by the

seeping out of vapor created from the hot liquid, there is less heat loss compared to the

conventional container noodles, in which a synthetic resin film is used as a covering and

the synthetic resin film is attached to the opening 300 by way of adhesive, and easier

carrying is enabled, as the liquid broth does not leak to the outside even when the bottle

400 is tilted or turned.

The storage capacity of the bottle 400 may be 300 ~ 1000 ml, such as for the

storage capacity of a drink container, so that a user may readily consume the instant food

while carrying it and moving.

The bottle 400 is made of a heat-resistant material, hot liquid is inserted inside

the bottle 400 through the opening 300, and the instant noodles 500 held inside the bottle

400 is cooked by the heat transfer with the liquid. As the heat of the liquid is transferred through the bottle 400 to the relatively cold outdoor air, the liquid is partially cooled so

that there are temperature differences created within the liquid, and the convection

phenomenon is created, in which the portions of the liquid having high temperatures rise

and the portions having low temperatures descend.

As illustrated in Fig. 3, since the instant noodles 500 manufactured with lengths

of 0.1 cm to 5 cm or lower, unlike the conventional pouch noodles or container noodles

manufactured with lengths of about 40 ~ 70 cm, are readily rotated by themselves in the

convection state without being hindered by the length of the noodles such that the upper

and lower portions of the noodles are interchanged, the heat transfer with the hot liquid is

made easier for a reduced cooking time.

When the bottle 400 is shaken or turned, the heat transfer between the instant

noodles 500 and the liquid is further facilitated due to the flow of the liquid, so that the

cooking time is further reduced, and since the opening 300 of the bottle 400 is coupled

with and sealed by the stopper 100, the liquid broth does not leak to the outside even when

the bottle 400 is turned upside down.

Experimental measurements were performed with regards the cooking time of

regular container noodles and the instant noodles 500 according to the first disclosed

embodiment of the present invention, with the time at which the noodles turn from a solid

state of an opaque color to a semitransparent milky-colored gel state and sink to the

bottom of the container set as the time point at which the cooking is complete, and the results are that while it takes a maximum of 3 minutes at average for the cooking to be

completed for the regular container noodles, it takes a maximum of 2 minutes at average

until cooking completion for the instant noodles 500 according to the first disclosed

embodiment of the present invention, whereby it is noted that the cooking time of the

instant noodles 500 according to the first disclosed embodiment of the present invention

has been reduced by over 33% compared to the cooking time of the conventional noodles.

Although it has not been illustrated, a heat-shrinking film may be attached or a

heat-sensitive ink may be coated on the outer surface of the bottle 400 or stopper 100, to

readily inform the user of the cooking completion time of the instant noodle 500.

The heat-shrinking film is a kind of plastic film and has a tendency to shrink by

absorbing heat from the outside, and the heat-sensitive ink is a kind of chemical material

inside a thermosetting plastic capsule and has a tendency to change color according to

changes in temperature and heat of the outside environment.

The heat-shrinking film or the heat-sensitive ink changes in length or in color

according to the passage of cooking time, due to the heat transferred from the hot liquid,

while the length of the heat-shrinking film or the color of the heat-sensitive ink that

corresponds to the optimal cooking time is marked beforehand on the outer surface of the

bottle 400 or stopper 100.

By visually checking whether or not the changing length of the heat-shrinking

film or the changing color of the heat-sensitive ink matches the mark, the user can readily be aware of the cooking completion time of the instant noodles 500.

Although it has not been illustrated, an insulation layer may be equipped on the

part of the bottle gripped by the hand for blocking the heat of the hot liquid, so that the

bottle 400 containing hot liquid may readily be shaken or turned for cooking or readily be

carried and moved.

Fig. 4 is a cross-sectional view of an instant food package according to the first

disclosed embodiment of the present invention, in a tilted state.

So that the cooked instant noodles 500 and broth may readily be consumed by

gulping them down as with a drink, the viscosity of the broth containing the instant

noodles 500 may be maintained to allow easy flowing.

When the main ingredient of the instant noodle 500 is starch, a transparent or

milky-colored colloid solution having a very high viscosity is formed as the starch

particles of the instant noodles 500 react to the water and the heat to become hydrated and

swollen.

Since the hydration and swelling phenomena are proportional to the specific

surface area of the starch, the more there are of the particles that are 1 mm or less, the

greater the specific surface area, so that the reaction is accelerated, and the gel particles

high in viscosity are increased for a decrease in the overall flow property.

In order to improve the flow of the broth by including less of the particles, the instant noodles 500 having lengths of 1 cm to 5 cm or lower may be included such that

their weight is 90 weight% or higher of the total weight of the instant noodles 500.

Also, an inclination portion may be formed around the opening 300 of the bottle

400 so that the flow resistance of the broth is reduced, and depending on the preferences

of the user, the cooked instant noodles 500 and the broth may be consumed after adjusting

their temperatures by adding ice or cold water.

Fig. 5 is a cross-sectional view of an instant food package having a built-in

flavoring package 200 according to a second disclosed embodiment of the present

invention.

The additives, such as dried meats and vegetables and condiments, etc., included

inside the flavoring package 200 may be mixed in and held together with the instant

noodles 500 inside the bottle 400, and may be treated with condiments during the

manufacture of the instant noodles 500. The flavoring package 200 may be in the form of

solid pieces, powder, or liquid flavoring, etc.

As illustrated in Fig. 5, the groove 111 of the lower stopper 110 is coupled with

the protrusion 410 of the opening 300, while the protrusion 112 of the lower stopper 110

is coupled with the groove 122 of the upper stopper 120, and flavoring additives or the

flavoring package 200 may be held in the space between the lower stopper 110 and the

upper stopper 120. As illustrated in Figs. 6 to 7, an instant food package according to a third

disclosed embodiment of the present invention is composed of a heat-resistant bottle 400

having an opening 300 on one side, instant noodles 500 held inside the bottle 400, a first

stopper 130 having an open-hole 133 on one side facing the opening 300 and having a

groove 103 that couples with the protrusion 410 of the opening 300, a second stopper 140

that has a groove 141 corresponding with the protrusion 131 of the first stopper 130 to be

detachably coupled with the first stopper 130 for sealing, and a catching member 600,

which couples with the bottle 400 or the first stopper 130 to partially close the opening

300, and on which the instant noodles 500 that pass through the opening 300 and

opening-hole 640 are caught.

Since one side of the first stopper 130 is coupled and connected with one side of

the second stopper 140 by the connection member 135, the second stopper 140 is

prevented from being lost when the user opens or closes the opening 300.

As illustrated in Figs. 8 to 9, the catching member 600 and the first and second

stoppers 130, 140 form a predetermined space, and when the bottle 400 is turned upside

down after the opening 300 of the bottle 400 containing the broth and the instant noodles

500 for which the cooking has been completed is sealed by coupling the second stopper

140, the broth containing the instant noodles 500 passes through the opening 300 and opening-hole 640 (Fig. 6) and flows into the predetermined space.

On one side of the catching member 600, there may be an inclination portion 610

having a shape that reduces flow resistance when the broth containing the instant noodles

500 flows into the predetermined space.

Since the catching member 600 closes a portion of the opening 300, when the

bottle 400 turned upside down recovers its position, the instant noodles 500 are caught on

the catching member 600 in a predetermined amount that allows an easy single instance

of consumption for a user, with the broth containing the remaining instant noodles 500

flowing to the lower part of the bottle 400.

A catching groove 630 may be included in the catching member 600 in

correspondence with the predetermined amount, and a catching shelf 620 may be formed

on one side of the catching member 600 that protrudes out so that the instant noodles 500

are readily caught on it.

As illustrated in Fig. 10, when a user tilts the bottle 400 after separating the

second stopper 140 from the first stopper 130, in order to consume the instant noodles 500

caught on the catching member 600, the predetermined amount of instant noodles 500

caught on the catching member 600 passes through the open-hole 133 (Fig. 6) and flows

into the mouth of the user.

When the bottle 400 is tilted, the instant noodles 500 and broth held in the lower part of the bottle 400 are stopped by the catching member 600 and do not flow into the

mouth of the user, so that the user may readily consume the instant noodles 500 separated

from the broth selectively in only the predetermined amount.

Fig. 11 is a perspective view of an instant food package of a pack form according

to a fourth disclosed embodiment of the present invention. As illustrated in Fig. 11, an

there is an opening 300 included on one side of the pack 700, the opening 300 is coupled

and sealed with a first stopper 130, and one side of the first stopper 130 is coupled and

connected with one side of a second stopper 140 by a connection member 135.

The pack 700 is made of a flexible material such as synthetic resin or paper, etc.,

so that when it is held and carried in a bag, etc., it can be deformed to be suitable for the

holding space, whereby the portability is improved. The pack 700 may be formed to have

a narrow shape around the opening 300 so that the flow resistance of the broth containing

the instant noodles 500 is reduced.

The present invention is not limited to the embodiments set forth above, and it is

to be appreciated that many variations may be conceived by those skilled in the art

without departing from the spirit of the present invention.
