Weight loss in superchilled pork as affected by cooling rate

This study aimed to identify in which extent cooling rate in pork subjected to superchilling influences the final weight loss after storage. Different cooling systems (brines at −15 °C and -9 °C, forced air at −18 °C and still air −24 °C) led to a range of cooling rates in pork model systems. The ice crust on the surface of pork grew faster in those systems with a higher energy flux. Higher cooling rates led to lower weight loss after superchilling storage, highlighting the importance of using fast cooling systems for superchilled pork.
