-3°C storage provides the advantage of both fridge and freezer
Conventional freezers freeze food to -18°C which destroys the freshness and the nutrients in the food. Prime Fresh only freezes food until -3°C. This creates a thin film of ice over the food which is perfect for preserving and retaining the nutrients.
Why -3°C is good?
Prime Fresh is frozen at exquisite temperature approx. -3 °C, where the food just begins to freeze, preventing oxidation and bacterial degradation. Because it isn't completely frozen, thawing is unnecessary.
*The soft frozen state varies depending on the amount and thickness of food.
Prime Fresh keeps food fresh and it's convenient!
1. Nutrient retention
There is hardly any drip as you don’t need to defrost, so there’s minimal loss of nutrients and umami flavor.
* Tested by Techno Science Corporation. Drip losses were determined per 100g chicken meat sample.
2. Freshness retention
It can keep food in a near-raw state, maintaining its delicious flavor and texture.
3. No need to defrost
Since only the surface of food is soft frozen, you can cut meat & fish easily without defrosting
Prime Fresh is convenient for cooked food such as sauce and chutney. You can easily scoop just the amount you want with a spoon.
4. Improving taste
Approx. -3ºC soft freezing stimulates and improves the taste of vegetables and fruit. They are sweeter and tastier than when they’re stored in the regular fridge compartment.
*Test conditions/ Refrigerator: NR-F602WPV, comparison of the fridge compartment and Prime Fresh Freezing room when the setting is MID.
