Regeneration of food by sous vide

Regeneration of food is a process aimed to maintain the quality of food, trying to raise to natural temperature the blast chilled, frozen or quickly packaged food in the most delicate way.

Regeneration of vacuum packed products, previously cooked and chilled, contribute to the hoteliers and restaurateurs with great advantages: better organization of production and lower waste, greater flexibility in menus, better conditions in the purchase, increased food security, improved quality of food, etc.

If for cooking sous vide and later food preservation we use the vacuum sealer, sous vide cooker and blast chiller, for regeneration, again, we use the sous vide cooker. At this stage, it is important not to exceed the cooking temperature of the product not to prejudice its qualities. Once the desired temperature has been reached and before serving, we can choose to grillfry, or bake the product as long as the initial cooking temperature is not exceeded in the products heart.

To illustrate, in collaboration with Fleischmann’s Cooking Group, we bring you a video that shows the process of regeneration. Our corporate chef Enrique Fleischmann and a member of his team, along with a two SmartVide, regenerated and served several dishes to attendees, showing, among other things, how interesting the use of sous-vide cookers is to regenerate pre-prepared food.

If you are interested in this work process, we recommend that you watch this post about Maruka Gastro, the new concept of our corporate chef, Enrique Fleischmann, who tests the Cook & Chill system. We also invite you to learn more about our technology partner Janby Digital Kitchen that offers a comprehensive solution for food regeneration and cooking.
