the benefits of Snap freezing
Cooked meals can be preserved by snap freezing after cooking is almost complete. Snap freezing (or blast freezing) is the process of rapid cooling for the purpose of preservation. The speedy freezing process cools food to a temperature under 3 degrees Celsius within 90 minutes of cooking and stored at a maintained temperature of 0 to 3 degrees Celsius.
This ensures that bacteria has minimal time to develop and keeps produce fresh as it effectively stops rapid nutrient deterioration.
A slower freezing process would still allow for unwanted changes in the produce and could result in bland, unhealthy food.
These processes have the advantage that preparation and cooking of meals is not tied to the times when the food is to be served.
Nutritional health is of particular importance to Kayla’s Kitchen especially for those who are considered vulnerable and who are particularly reliant on nutrient-dense foodstuffs. That is why the nutrient preserving properties of snap freezing are so beneficial.
