Cryogenic cooling and freezing with CO2

Cryogenic cooling and freezing are fast cooling and freezing processes which are often used in various food-related sectors such as bakery, confectionery, meat and seafood. Cryogenic cooling and freezing often use carbon dioxide.

Advantages of cryogenic cooling and freezing with CO2

The main advantages of cryogenic cooling and freezing with CO2 are:

  • Faster than conventional systems, increased production capacity
  • Better preservation of nutrients and aromas
  • Better conservation of the natural food quality, taste, colour and product form
