TECHNICAL FIELD

The present invention regards that sector of packaging destined to contain ready-to-use products, that are to be consumed without cooking or by prior cooking or by heating in a microwave oven (in the case of alimentary products), composed of two or more components that are to be mixed before use and, in particular, egg based products.

As a typifying and non-limitative example, the invention can be used for mixing beaten eggs and various aromatic ingredients for the preparation of mono- or multi-flavour omelettes or for special preparations, and various aromatic ingredients for the preparation of mono- or multi-taste creams, cakes or soufflés or, moreover, mono- or multi-taste marinades for fish or crustaceans, etc.

STATE OF THE ART

At present, various types of packaging for products relative to the preparation of foodstuffs as cited in example above are known.

In particular, having to do with packages containing: a) Eggs in their shells and a separate container with flavourings to be added at the moment of preparation; b) Powdered preparations for cakes, to be added to water, milk or egg, and to be cooked in a microwave oven;

The particular disadvantage of the packaging relative to these two types is constituted by the fact that in order to create the final product it is necessary to add flavourings or water, milk, etc., thus resulting in the possibility of dirtying oneself, while for all the above mentioned types the disadvantage lies in the fact that other containers or mixers will be dirtied and in the fact that it is necessary, anyway, to use saucepans, frying-pans or baking tins or trays for cooking, with a modest increment in practicality with respect to the traditional method of preparation and obtaining, however, only a mono-taste product.

Other packaging types exist, that have been developed to overcome the above cited disadvantages, where: c) A fluid element is separated, by a sealed partition, from other foodstuffs in solid form. Here we are dealing with a flexible container with which, by pressing in a specific position, the opening of the sealed partition is obtained and with the consequent mixing of the fluid component and the solid component. Such a packaging is illustrated in patent JP-B-2154651; d) The fluid or powdered element is separated from the solid component by an extractable film, whose removal allows the fluid or powdered element to mix with the solid component, without dirtying oneself. Such a packaging, which allows only the preparation of a mono-taste product, is illustrated in the patent application GB-A-2376220; e) The fluid or powdered element is separated from the solid component by a partition that is removable at the moment of opening the packaging, to allow the fluid or powdered element to mix with the solid component. In this case the packaging is open and there may be the danger of dirtying oneself. Such a package, illustrated in the patent application FR-A-2831140, allows solely for the preparation of a mono-taste product; f) The fluid or powdered element is separated from the solid component by a partition that is glued to the covering film. It is possible to manually detach the partition from the film, to allow the fluid or powdered element to mix with the solid component, without dirtying oneself. Such a packaging, illustrated in the patent application JP-A-2000346948, allows only for the preparation of a mono-taste product. The scope of the present discovery is, therefore, that of making available a packaging for a ready-to-use product that allows one to: Opportunely keep the components of the product separated until the moment of use, mix together the diverse components of the product in a practical, hygienic and efficient manner, finish the creation of the product in the same packaging, also by putting into effect a vent for the internal vapours, with, above all, the possibility of preparing the components in such a way as to obtain mono- or multi-taste products.
