    Presentation Title:

    Combining cryogenic freezing and modified atmosphere packaging to improve food preservation quality

    Presentation Synopsis:

    Frozen foods could be deteriorated by different ways depending on food chemical composition, storage and unfrozen conditions, limiting the shelf-life of the product. An alternative technology to frozen foods is freeze chilling that involves initial freezing of a foodstuff with frozen storage being followed by thawing and distribution of the product at chill temperatures. The combination of storing cryogenically frozen food under modified atmosphere packaging can avoid some food deterioration processes during frozen and after thawing periods, extending the final shelf-life of the foodstuffs and offering the possibility to sell the food as a chilled product.
