Food Freezing with Liquid Nitrogen or Liquid Carbon Dioxide.

Liquid nitrogen (or carbon dioxide) freezing has many advantages over mechanical freezing and chilling processes:

  • Faster
  • Colder
  • More flexible
  • Takes up less space
  • Lower maintenance

The advantages of cryogenic freezing also help food products retain their moisture (preventing weight loss from dehydration), quality, texture, color, and flavor.
