To avoid a bitter taste, don't heat the pasty pulp above 115 Celsius.
Apparently, this process achieves the "desired consistency between soft cheese and hard cheese or dried beef(!)", enabling the peanut butter to be "sliced" and placed on bread.
Bet this looked remarkably similar to Geitost ‐ that incredible Norwegian sweet cheese.

Seriously, Kellogg's patent no. US558393 entitled "Flakes cereals and process of preparing same" claimed "A process of manufacturing an improved alimentary product, which consists, first, in soaking the grain in water for some hours, whereby it is subjected to a preliminary digestion with its contained cerealin, and a temperature which prevents actual fermentation; second, subjecting the previously‐soaked grain to heat for a time sufficient to completely cook the starch; third drying the grain; fourth rolling the grain between cold rollers; and fifth, baking the flakes until thoroughly dry and crisp." In English: … the steps of soaking, cooking, drying, rolling and baking grain.
This one's good! McDONALD's actually patented its "method for making a sandwich":
Never considered myself cutting‐edge when emptying a can of Heinz beans on to toast for tea. But, starting to reconsider.
