Preservation is one of the highest priorities for the food industry. Improper preservation increases the risk of food spoilage, which completely removes all economic value from the product. Jun Innovations has developed the solution to preserve the quality and economic value and freshness over an extended period of time.
The concept is that when a polar liquid (i.e. water) is exposed to an external electric field, it would undergo polarization that re-orientates and vibrates water molecules. Also, water is diamagnetic which may develop a magnetic dipole moment in quick response to an applied magnetic field, leading to rearrangement of water molecules. Thus, combination of these two field strengths can effectively interrupt critical ice nucleation in food matrices and extend the supercooling status of foods even at subzero temperatures.
