 What is the difference between chilling and freezing?



Chilling:

Chilling is a processing technique in which the temperature of a food is reduced and kept in temperature between -1 to 8 ℃.

Freezing:

A slow temperature drop occurs as ice crystals form within the food, freezing delays spoilage and keeps foods safe by preventing microorganisms from enzyme activity (-18℃).

Chilling:

Chilling simply means reducing the temperature at above freezing & below 15℃.


Freezing:

Freezing simply means cooling below it's freezing point.

Chilling:

It is used to reduce the rate of biochemical & microbiological changes hence to extend shelf life ( reduce growth but alive ).

Freezing:

Freezing causes death of 10% to 60% of the microbe population.

Chilling:

It causes minimal changes to sensory characteristics & nutritional properties of food.

Freezing:

It loss texture during freezing ice-crystals forms which cause adjacent cell walls to rupture, negligible chances to pigments flavor, & nutritionally important compounds very little nutrition loss most of the vitamin B & C is retained.

Chilling:

The theory of chilling is removal of sensible heat & heat generated by respiratory activity.

Freezing:

A freezing kept at below -18℃ & for long terms must be -26℃.

Chilling:

  • Shelf life short > 1 month.
  • Chilling is premium.
  • Chilling is for small proportion.

Freezing:

  • Longer >6 month.
  • Freezing is a affordable.
  • Freezing is for large proportion.

Food Allergy: Causes, Symptoms and Protection 2020.

Food Allergy (Causes, Symptoms and Protection)2020. Food Allergy  "Food allergy is an abnormal response to a food triggered by the body's immune system . "Allergic reaction to food can cause serious illness and ,in some cases ,death. If you have food allergy ,it is important for you to work with your healthcare provider to find out what food cause you allergic reaction.   Food allergen  A normally harmless substance that triggers an allergic reaction. Most of the allergens are proteins(an exemption is a sugar molecule which cause mammalian meat allergy) and there are generally several kind of allergens in each food, it is not yet clear what makes some foods proteins allergenic, and not others. The development of an allergy occurs in two stages: 1)Sensitization When a person first eats the allergen and produce antibodies(IgE or immunoglobulin E), which arms the immune system. IgE ,is a type of protein that works against  specific food. 2)Reaction When
