Since the sedentary lifestyle, food preservation has been one of the most important needs of people. Food in the hunting and gathering era of human history was consumed before it rotted, but production had to be preserved for two harvest periods after the beginning of agricultural production.
Similarly, meat, fish and dairy products should be stored for a period of time. In ancient times, methods such as cold cave storage, salting, smoking, burial, boiling, drying and canning were used by trial and error to preserve food. In this way, food is protected until it is eaten unharmed. Cold chains are used today to meet this need.
Microorganisms, enzymes, temperature and light are the main causes of food spoilage. When microorganisms meet the proper comfort requirements of food, they quickly consume nutrients and produce beneficial or harmful foods.
The cold chain is a closed-loop system that prevents the chemical, biological, and microbiological effects that can occur when food spoils. In short, it’s a journey from the manufacturer to the consumer’s table. It is also one of the most important parts of food safety. To ensure food safety, do not break the cold chain during product storage, packaging, shipping, and display.
Quick freezing is a sudden drop in the temperature of a product. Impact treatment is essential for storage at 18 ° C. In the pre-cooling process, some products that have been brought to a temperature of 05 ° C are placed in a freezer and then sent to a freezing warehouse, and this section, called the freezing tunnel, has a core temperature of -18 ° C.
Methods of freezing products such as compressed air shocks (forced air), plate freezers, and brine shocks are available. The product was brought into the storage room after a pre-cooling and freezing process. It stays there until it is consumed next and becomes more valuable in the food display cabinet market. Today, different ways of storing food are used.
The most important of these processes are the cold application processes used in almost every area today. Refrigeration formed by inhibiting the growth and activity of microorganisms, including food, at low temperatures can be studied under two major headings. One is refrigeration, usually used for short-term consumption of fruits and vegetables, and the other is long-term storage, usually a freezer used for storing meat and dairy products.
