How To Use Insulated Seafood Containers To Preserve Seafood

How to store seafood?

1. Storage temperature of live seafood The storage temperature of live seafood is generally 16~18℃, and the salt content of live seafood is generally 1.5%~3%.

2. The preservation method of live seafood

(1) Anhydrous preservation method It is to cool the water to a temperature that makes the seafood suspend its life activities, then store it for a period of time, and then put the seafood into the water, and they will wake up again. In a dehydrated state, its life can be maintained for more than 24 hours.

(2) Use dry ice to preserve live seafood Dry ice preserves live seafood, because the temperature of dry ice is extremely low, dry ice and live seafood cannot be directly contacted, otherwise, the seafood will be frozen to death. In actual operation, use a foam incubator to store the seafood in layers. First, you put a layer of dry ice in the foam box, then, put a layer of hay, or a similar breathable quilt, sponge or anything on top of the dry ice, and then put the seafood on it and place it in a layered manner. Put dry ice and seafood.

(3) Wet preservation: First sterilize the live seafood, put the prepared water in the plastic bag, then put the seafood in different specifications and quantities, then squeeze out the air in the bag, and pour in an appropriate amount of oxygen, and use a rubber ring Tighten the pocket. Then put the plastic bags into the cardboard boxes, each box can hold 1 to 2 bags, preferably in a foam box. In summer, when the temperature is high, you can put a small bag of ice cubes in the box to cool down.

What are the preservation methods?

1. Fresh-keeping cabinet

The fresh-keeping cabinets on the market can be divided into air-cooled open-type fresh-keeping cabinets and direct-cooled glass-door fresh-keeping cabinets. Its function is to reduce the temperature to slow down the activity of bacteria inside the food and prolong the shelf life. At present, the most popular ones on the market are fresh-keeping cabinets for cooked food, fresh-keeping cabinets for fresh meat, fresh-keeping cabinets for yogurt, and fresh-keeping cabinets for clean vegetables.

2. Insulated Seafood Containers

There are three kinds of fresh-keeping boxes: one is a plastic fresh-keeping box, that is, a fresh-keeping box: made of resin material, the general temperature range: the highest temperature is 120 ℃, the lowest temperature is -20 ℃, one is a foam fresh-keeping box, and the last one is The cold and heat resistant technology fresh-keeping box is made of food-grade environmentally friendly LLDPE material.

3. Fresh-keeping bags

Fresh-keeping bags mainly refer to bags made of food plastic wrap, which are mainly used to store vegetables, fruits, grains, cooked food and other foods, and are widely used in daily life. Fresh-keeping bags are divided into polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) and other types according to the production material.

3. Modified atmosphere packaging

The modified atmosphere preservation method changes the gas composition of the storage environment. The modified atmosphere preservation technology is a technology that prolongs the storage life and shelf life of food by adjusting the ambient gas. The basic principle is: in a certain closed system, through various adjustment methods Obtaining regulated gases different from normal atmospheric components, inhibiting the physiological and biochemical processes and microbial activities that lead to food spoilage.
