Yellowtail frozen with a flash freezer
As seen in the picture, the freshness of the flesh is completely different.
The yellowtail that was frozen in a regular freezer saw a change in the overall taste from a fresh yellowtail. The reason for this deterioration is because with the normal method of freezing, the cells in the inner core of the yellowtail are destroyed, and the original freshness quality is lost.
On the other hand for our yellowtail sample, there was absolutely no drip outflow, and the appearance and texture did not change from prior to being frozen. The core freshness quality was retained throughout the flash freezing process.
