* Data by Panasonic; test confirmed by Techno-Sciences Co., Ltd. Preparation: Wrapped sardine in normal tray; stored for 7 days. Ambient temperature: 25ºC, Mode: Prime Fresh (medium); chilled in Prime Fresh switchable room with aluminium plate. Result: Initial K value of sardine 11.3%. On day 7, K value of chilled sardine 33.7%; Prime Fresh sardine 17.7%. K value: better freshness with lower K value. Result may vary depend on product features & operation, food condition. Result not extends to the best-by or expiration date of fish. “7 Days Freshness”: Food kept up to 7 days with Prime Fresh.
