State of the art: Superchilling in the food processing industry

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1369246

Controlled partial freezing or superchilling of food products can result in significant shelf life extensions during the cold chain. Between 10 % - 20 % of the foods water content is frozen and the ice functions as a thermal inertia during storage and transportation. Superchilled product have in gen...

PROMAC: Energy-efficient processing of seaweeds in blue-green value chains

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1380076

PROMAC is a research project investigating seaweeds as novel raw materials for human food and domestic animal feed applications. Three different species of seaweed (Alaria esculenta, Saccharina latissima and Palmaria palmata), all with significant potential for commercial cultivation in Norway as we...

Life cycle assessment of salmon cold chains : comparison between chilling and superchilling technologies

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1288915

The cold chain is defined as a set of refrigeration steps that maintain the quality and safety of food product. Refrigerant leakage and the use of fossil fuels to produce electrical power for refrigeration equipment contribute greatly to ozone depletion and global warming. Thus, new and emerging ref...

The FRISBEE tool, a software for optimising the trade-off between food quality, energy use, and global warming impact of cold chains

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1142791

Food quality (including safety) along the cold chain, energy use and global warming impact of refrigeration systems are three key aspects in assessing cold chain sustainability. In this paper, we present the framework of a dedicated software, the FRISBEE tool, for optimising quality of refrigerated ...

The influence of long-term storage, temperature and type of packaging materials on the quality characteristics of frozen farmed Atlantic Salmon (Salmo Salar)

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1033323

The variations of biochemical, structural, sensory and microbiological characteristics of salmon were examined during the long-term frozen storage at –25 °C, –45 °C and –60 °C. The effects of four different types of packaging materials were studied as well. Lipid oxidation was measured by peroxide v...

Use of phase change materials (PCM) to keep superchilled temperatures in consumer packages through the cold chain

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1162375

Superchilling of foods like fish, pork and poultry is known to increase the shelf-life of up to 100 %. In western countries, 30 % of the processed foods are thrown due to i.e. short shelf-life. Superchilling is a refrigeration technology where the product temperature is lowered to just below the ini...

Heat pump drying : simulation and evaluation of drying system for clipfish with main and storage drying

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1162404

A process simulation of industrial heat pump drying of clipfish is performed and the energy consumption for different systems is compared. The components of the heat pump (evaporator, compressor, 2 condensers, expansion valve and controller) were dimensioned for a 250 kW (thermal) system and a dryin...

Towards sustainablility in cold chains : development of a quality, energy and environmental assessment tool - QEEAT

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1162416

Quantification of the impact of refrigeration technologies in terms of the quality of refrigerated food, energy usage, and environmental impact is essential to assess cold chain sustainability. In this paper, we present a software tool QEEAT (Quality, Energy and Environmental Assessment Tool) for ev...
