35% better pedicel (stem) retention

In 2011, nanoICE partnered with the Washington State University in order to perform an extensive test on Skeena & Rainer cherries to evaluate the ways both nanoICE and flake ice affect such gentle products.

The cooling tests showed that nanoICE quickly and dramatically reduced fruit temperature. Further analysis revealed better color grade, visual appearance and stem retention in fruit treated with nanoICE.

  • 6% improvement on storability
  • 5.4% better firmness
  • 35% increase in stem retention

The 72-hour fish test

The nanoICE team self-conducted a quick experiment where we stored salmon for 3 days in two separate containers – one filled with flake ice and the other filled with nanoICE.*

In just 72 hours, the salmon treated with flake ice showed signs of advanced bacterial infection and discoloration. The fin had slipped down and had pulled away from the flesh, which documented for ongoing dehydration and enzymatic breakdown. Additionally, there was a pool of drop loss, containing largely protein.

On the other hand, the salmon we placed in nanoICE did not have any signs of drip los or colour discoloration. The fin had stayed in its original position. And since nanoICE is liquid, it had also penetrated the inner side of the fish, keeping its core cool inside and out.

* Third-party validation needed to prove results.
