vacuum packaging food – A STEP BY STEP GUIDE

In Equipment & Manufacturer, get to know your EQUIPMENT, Vol. 22

Vacuum packaging as explained in the previous paged article is a method of food packaging that removes air from the package prior to sealing. Professional kitchens usually use a large vacuum sealer such as a chamber sealer to package foods as it helps in advanced food preparation, portion control, increasing food’s shelf life, reducing food wastage and promotes higher standards of food hygiene and safety. Although chamber-style vacuum sealers are large and relatively expensive, they do an excellent job of quickly sealing food in airtight plastic packaging. Their powerful vacuum pump and large chamber gives them the ability to quickly seal multiple bags of food at the same time, which are important benefits in a professional kitchen. Here is a step-by-step guide to vacuum packaging both raw and cooked foods.
