Fresh frozen food Definition

Convenience Foods - “Premium” No Longer Leads | frozen

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The freezing is a treatment that allows the preservation of foodstuffs for a long time bringing the temperature to values ​​much lower than the -18 ° C and generally at least -30. It differs from the freezing temperatures for both application times of treatment.

The freezing slows the deterioration of the food and, although it may stop the proliferation of micro-organisms, not necessarily kill them. Many enzymatic processes are only slowed down by the cold. So it is customary to stop enzyme activity before freezing, through blanching (scalding) or with additives (never preservatives , prohibited by law).

Following the basic need to feed and process the products of nature the man needed to keep for as long as possible the result of his efforts to have them available in a continuous manner.

The first step was the cooking but then followed the ' drying , the salting , the ' acidification and finally the ' smoking . Towards the end of 1800 Pasteur and Appert invented the technique of the canned product subjected to elevated temperatures. The man, however, over the centuries has always used the low temperatures to improve food preservation.

However, only in 1928 C. Birdseye developed in the United States the first industrial system freezing on contact, which made ​​it possible to dramatically reduce the time of freezing. The technique developed quickly and it was clear that it was the fastest freezing process resulted better the quality of food at the time of its use, even long after the freezing process, even up to six months.

This has been possible because of the widespread availability of cold chain from the place of production to the point of consumption.

When it warms up a food and fast cooling is applied to a food, a vegetable or a fillet of fish, that is, to a plant or animal tissue, we observe a decrease in temperature from the surface of the product inside. At a certain point the water contained in the product changes state turning into ice crystals.

If the cooling process is slow the initial crystals tend to grow in size (process of freezing) agglomerating the water nearby, causing dehydration and partial rupture of the walls and cell membranes, causing normally, after thawing, a loss of turgidity of tissue and a loss of tissue fluid and nutrient solubilized in it.

A high cooling rate (freezing process) instead, promotes a uniform crystallization of the fabric of small homogeneous crystals, the more rapid the cooling the more you reduce the damage to the tissue, plant or animal product that you intend to treat, with the result that thawing the product will be very similar to the fresh product in terms of firmness, nutritional and organoleptic properties.

The production processes are regulated in Italy by Legislative Decree No. 110 of 27 January 1992, which implements a European directive that is valid in all EU countries. This Decree regulates in detail the production, distribution and sale of frozen foods. In particular, the Decree stipulates that the frozen product is packaged, and the packaging must ensure in particular:

When frugal and off-grid really pay off - storms

This is when the benefits of being truly frugal, the definition meaning "less dependent on everything", really pays off.
Storms in the northeast of the US. 300,000 without power. Those who understood the concept of "independent" are home free. My brother was unable to get a wood stove installed, due to various laws. So, he installed a "backup oil burner", that runs on waste veggie oil. He made sure that it requires zero electricity. Sure enough, they lost power. He wisely did not "stock up" on food that had to be frozen because his electric has been out for five days. He's got canned produce, purchased fresh at the Farmer's Markets in the summer, and some canned goods
