Blast Chilling or Blast Freezing, also known as Shock Freezing, is the rapid chilling of food, to ensure it get’s through the danger zone (5-60°C) as quick as possible.
Blast Chiller/Freezers achieve this by the targeted blowing of chilled air, at a high velocity, until the core temperature of your food product has reached under 5°C (Blast Chilling) & under -18°C (Blast Freezing).
There are many different reasons as to why any kitchen creating a food product choose to incorporate blast chilling or blast freezing into their processes, as there are many different benefits that a blast chiller & blast freezer provides.
Please read through some of the main benefits below.
Blast Chillers & Blast Freezers cross this range as quickly as possible, taking the core of the temperature of the food to under +3°C in less than 90 minutes, & under -18°C in less than 240 minutes.
(Based on Standard HACCP Guidelines)
Superior Food Quality
With less weight loss & increased moisture retention, blast chilling / blast freezing ensures you capture all of the original organoleptic qualities of your food, including it’s colour, texture, shape, nutrients, and most importantly, it’s taste.
Once regenerated to serve, it will still taste as if it’s only just been freshly cooked.
As your food will be chilled quicker, it will be ready to continue being processed, i.e. portioned, plated & mixed with other food products, or simply ready to transport to your retail venue/customer, enabling you to process rush orders faster.
As your food will be entering your cold storage rooms already at temperature, they will not be working as hard as previously, so you will have energy savings from your power bill, as well as more longevity from your other refrigeration equipment.
Due to the increased shelf life of food that has been processed through a Blast Chiller & Blast Freezer, you will experience a reduction in the wastage of your product, and allow you to plan your production more efficiently.
You can also save money by purchasing ingredients, including seasonal items, in greater quantity, or when are less expensive and/or of better quality, and blast freeze them for use at a later time.
