To get this type of quality, only the best blast freezers in the market are able to present to you such advanced freezing technology.
Shrimp & Blast Freezer
We gathered various shrimps and tested our next generation blast freezers (Flash Freezers). Here are the types of shrimps that we tested in our Flash Freezers.
Flash Freezing Spiny Lobster
We added the Spiny Lobster, is known in Japan as a high class delicacy, to see how a large product would freeze in our blast freezers. The Spiny Lobster is actually a large type of Shrimp (approx. 12 inches long-30cm). basic information is noted below
Prawn Shrimp Flash Freeze Test!
Another high end shrimp variety in the seafood market is the Prawn Shrimp, smaller than the Spiny Lobster, running 6 – 12 inches long. We wanted to run a test for our blast freezers using Prawn Shrimp, a popular shrimp product in the Japanese market, and test if this popular shrimp can be frozen without damaging the texture and taste. Below is a quick rundown of the Prawn Shrimp.
Blast Freezer: Freezing Test Results
Our test included various freezing methods that we conducted in different types of blast freezers. we are going to highlight two main points of our blast freezer: shrimp flash freezing tests.
Outline of the tests conducted
Our Re-Joice, liquid based freezer showed the best on both shrimp types. – There is no problem with the normal method of freezing, but pre-treatment before freezing can increase the effect of freezer. After various test (shrimps and fishes) we found out that, products with high concentration of water like seafood products, our blast freezer, ReJoice Flash Freezer is able to successfully keep most of the moisture of the product in a frozen state, and when the product is defrosted, texture and moisture are entirely in tacked.
In our test, flavor was also not compromised after multiple freezing tests. When it comes to air based freezers (other blast freezers) Moisture was the hardest that was hit, with some of the shrimps feeling “dryer” and not as soft as its pre-frozen state.

You can also see our other blast freezers and see what our flash freezing technology can do for you.
The Liquid based Freezer that demonstrated high freezing capabilities, the Re・Joice Freezer. Can freeze ingredients, through using a specialized method of liquid based freezing not found in any other blast freezers in the market!
Next generation blast freezer technology can be found in our 3D Freezer and it’s flash freezing technology using Anti Cycle Vibration Cold System. By wrapping the contents from 360°angle, the frozen product does not have irregularities and completely freezes without compromising texture or taste in the process (unlike other blast freezers).
