The 5 Benefits of Blast Chilling Your Product 

I recently came across a Linkedin article on Food Safety, and found it had all the important points of correct food temperature storage, ensuring food is cooked through, safe food handling tips for good hygiene practice, eliminate cross contamination etc, but it made no mention of a crucial part of food safety that is too often left out of the conversation: 
Ensuring your Cooked Food is efficiently blast chilled to get it through the HACCP Danger Zone as quick as possible.

So I'd like to clearly explain the Benefits of Blast Chilling your food products, but before I do, let's just run through how a blast chiller actually works.
Blast chillers are designed & engineered to blow chilled air at a high velocity to rapidly cool cooked food product and bring the core temperature down through the danger zone (60ºC - 5ºC) much faster than would occur in a standard conventional commercial refrigerated chiller or freezer.
Here are the top Five Benefits of Blast Chilling/Freezing your products:
1 - OPTIMAL FOOD SAFETY: At around 37°C, the number of bacteria doubles every 20 minutes. Blast chillers cross this temperature danger zone range as quickly as possible, taking the core temperature of the food under 3°C in less than 90 minutes, and -18°C in less than 240 minutes. This drastically reduces the quantity of bacteria in food after cooking to a minimum.
2 - IMPROVED FOOD QUALITY: By rapidly cooling your food, you are capturing all of the original organoleptic properties of the food, harnessing it’s colour, texture, moisture content, nutrients & most importantly, it's flavours. Once regenerated for consumption, your food will taste just like it was freshly cooked.
3 - LESS WEIGHT LOSS: After cooking, food releases moisture by evaporation. Blast chilling immediately after cooking stops evaporation, therefore reducing the loss of water & moisture content from your product, thus ensuring you get more value from your food & ingredients purchases.
If your product is sold by weight, revenue can be increased by up to 7%!
4 - FOOD WASTE REDUCTION: Blast chilling increases the shelf life of your food product, ensuring you have more time allowance to serve/sell/allocate your food products, resulting in a large reduction of waste, meaning less money being thrown away. 
5 - TIME, ENERGY & LABOUR SAVINGS: By using a Blast Chiller, your food is ready sooner for the next stage in your process. You may be able to cook, chill, pack & despatch on the same day, rather than having to wait hours or over-night, giving you the ability to process rush orders.
Also, as Blast Chillers are specifically designed & engineered for the task of rapidly cooling food, they perform this task efficiently, ensuring you avoid putting large heat-loads into your walk coolrooms, freezer rooms & other refrigeration within your business that are only purposed for preservation or cold storage, which then places additional stress on their refrigeration systems, reducing equipment life-spans and increasing your energy use.
Our AFINOX Blast Chillers are available from small Reach-In units, to larger Roll-In models, to our much larger Tunnel & Pass-Through Systems, so there is a model to suit any sized kitchen or production facility.

If you'd like more information, or are interested in a kitchen audit of your production, please Get In Touch.

We can offer in depth advice on Blast Chilling & Freezing your product, including indicative cooling/freezing times, as well as assist with other facets, such as recommended containers/vessels, trays/trolleys, refrigeration chain following and more.
Check-out Michelin Star Chef, Roberto Galetti, owner and chef of the Garibaldi Restaurant in Singapore, using our Infinity All-In-One Blast Chiller/Freezers to create his own recipe for delicious Mediterranean Style Guazzettoe. After being placed in a vacuum bag, the cod fillet was set to slow cooking in the Infinity All-in-One, taking advantage of Energy Saving, Labour Cost Reduction and Minimum Weight Loss.
From AFINOX's comprehensive range of Roll-In Blast Chiller/Freezers, we're going to take a closer look at the Infinity Start 40 Compact

This means, the 40T COMPACT is easily relocatable. Unlike other Roll-In Blast Chiller’s, it is a Non-Permanent Fixture, and can thus be easily transported and taken to new premises, as required, without any need for costly Disassembly & Decommissioning, & Re-installation.
