35% better <em>pedicel (stem) retention</em>
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.
The 72-hour <em>fish test</em>
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.

What our clients say
I’ve used NanoICE for 5 years. Cooling is much faster and more consistent.
The fish quality is better, the buyers are happier, and we don’t have to shovel flake ice anymore.
nanoICE is unique to the industry; we have not experienced results like these with any other ice product.
