Frozen / Retort RTE Meals Stability

Achieve Multiple Freeze-Thaw and Heat Stability Textures with Ryoto Sugar Esters

The pandemic lockdown in 2020 had propelled the frozen meals food industry into a rocket surge in revenue.

As ready-to-eat meals gain acceptance and a widened audience, taste and textural demands correspondingly increased. Revenue difference amongst the frozen meals brands on grocery shelves revealed the true consumers’ preferences in quality taste over cost.

Compared to single type of foods, food technologists are especially challenged when it comes to the ready-to-eat frozen meals or retort category.

The complexities of combining different textures in the meats, vegetables, seasoning, sauces; to enable them for shelf stability after heat processing or multiple freeze-thaw cylces if frozen are compounded.

Creaminess In The Factory To Gloppy Soup On The Home Dining Table

The last thing any food technologist or you would want, is to develop a product that achieved all the points of a gourmet cuisine in a box and watch it fail at the point of consumption.

Freezing, thawing, high heating processes cause many reactions within your RTE meal to happen.

  • Starches break down and leak water molecules, losing their gel-like structure. Or you can call it syneresis.
  • Protein degenerates, reducing the rich textures and mouth-coating properties
  • Fats break down or gather in larger globules, giving an oilier mouthfeel without the encapsulated fragrance.

“Frozen products go through multiple freeze-thaw cycles. Without stabilizing the individual contents and sauces, these temperature variations will drastically alter the final meal’s texture.”

Even other stabilizers, hydrocolloids or starches need emulsifiers to boost textural stability too!

Hydrocolloids are often a necessary part of a plant-based batter or sauce formula to simulate better organoleptic satiety effects. They need to be uniformly dispersed and hydrated to form consistent textures with the required shelf stabilities.

You can boost your hydrocolloid and starch systems with Ryoto Sugar Esters to extend the quality consistency and quality over the intended shelf-life.
