Processing the Food  Item Number: processingfood

Freeze food quickly to produce tiny ice crystals which protect food as it thaws and leaves food with a better texture.

To ensure a quick freezing time:

  • Place packages close to the sides of the freezer where it is the coldest.
  • Provide enough space between newly packaged foods to allow for adequate air circulation.
  • Lower the temperature of the freezer until food is completely frozen.
  • Do not overload freezer during initial freezing. Fewer items in the freezer will allow for a quicker freeze.

Once food is frozen, packages can be moved from the sides of the freezer and packed closer together.

Keep the freezer at 0 degrees or lower to protect quality. Use a freezer thermometer to regulate proper temperatures.
