Cooling And Freezing Times Of Foods

ASHRAE Chapter 10

Cooling and freezing food effectively reduces the activity of microorganisms and enzymes, thus retarding deterioration. In addition, crystallization of water reduces the amount of liquid water in food and inhibits microbial growth (Heldman
1975).
