Frozen Fruits and Vegetables Market - Overview
Freezing is a widely used method for food preservation. The process allows the preservation of texture, taste, and nutritional value in foods. The freezing process reaps the advantages of low temperatures at which chemical reactions are reduced, cellular metabolic reactions are delayed, and microorganisms cannot grow. The freezing process is employed for long-term preservation of various food and vegetables, providing them with an extended shelf-life. The process involves the lowering of temperature of the product to -18 ºC or below. This results in the change of the physical state of food, since the energy is removed by cooling the fruits and vegetables below freezing temperature. The extremely cold temperature retards the growth of microorganisms and slows down the chemical changes that affect the quality of the product and spoils it.
