FRESH FROZEN FOOD

FISH AND SEAFOOD

PROTON technology was initially designed for the freezing of Seafood.

Thanks to its effectiveness, it spread to other raw materials. PROTON is the freezing technology par excellence used by large fishing companies, fish farms (Tuna and Hamachi) and HORECA establishments, as it perfectly freezes fish, crustaceans, shellfish and cephalopods, as well as products made with fish.

Thanks to the fact that it preserves all the organoleptic properties of Seafood, it allows its consumption in raw (sashimi), also complying with the sanitary requirement to freeze previously eliminating Anisakis.

It also allows freezing species with seasonal catches, high-value species (eels, etc.) and avoiding sales at times of oversupply to concentrate them in periods of increased demand (Christmas).

SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS

SUSHI

PROTON is the only recognized way in Japan to freeze sushi rice correctly since it allows consuming frozen sushi as if it was freshly prepared.

Thanks to PROTON, in Japan, many sushi consumers can be served at the same time, who are concentrated at the same time in shops, restaurants or shopping centers.

It is also used for the frozen preparation of boxes of Bentō (ready-to-eat food that always includes sushi), very common in Japanese cuisine.







SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS


MEAT

The Japanese meat sector is recognized worldwide for the extreme care in raising the breeds of animals to be slaughtered (origin, food, etc.) that provide different types of top quality meats: beef, chicken, pork, wild boar, etc.

Among all, the meat of Wagyu stands out, the most valued breed of beef in the world. To continue offering this quality with the frozen product, companies in the meat sector choose PROTON to freeze their products.

PROTON is the technology chosen by Wagyu meat producers to freeze this delicate meat as it is the only one that allows you to enjoy its high level of original fats once defreezed.

SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS


VEGETABLES AND FRUITS

Japan has the highest longevity index in the world and in this aspect the consumption of vegetables plays a decisive role.

PROTON, thanks to maintaining the original cellular structure of food, fully preserves the nutritional and organoleptic properties of vegetables and greens (eddo, kabocha, ginger, bamboo, wasabi, etc.), and mushrooms (shitake, shimeji, enoki, nameko ).

Thanks to PROTON's efficiency, it is possible to freeze very high-value and impossible-to-freeze vegetables with other technologies such as truffle.

With PROTON it is also possible to freeze different whole fruits, although in order to keep the external part of some species perfect, a prior dehydration process is recommended, so its freezing in the form of pulp, purees and juices is always recommended.

SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS

BAKERY AND PASTRY

The Japanese have developed their own original bakery culture, with bread and pastries occupying a secondary position in the Japanese diet compared to rice, spreading its consumption after the Second World War.

For this reason they have developed different types and presentations of bread and pastries exclusive and original to this country (koppepan, suika bread, sarada bread, fruit and tamagoyaki sandwiches), with softness and delicacy being the distinctive characteristics of Japanese bread.

This type of industry requires a freezing without aggressiveness and that preserves these distinctive features and only PROTON is able to maintain these particularities thanks to its way of freezing: uniform, subtle and delicate. PROTON is used both for freezing precooked and cooked products, as well as for freezing different types of doughs (bread, pastries, pizzas, etc.).

Due to its great speed, PROTON has made spiral cooling obsolete, being PROTON the most widely used technology for cooling products that come out of the oven with or without toppings (chocolate, sugar).

SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS

DAIRY

Thanks to PROTON, it is possible to offer a wide range of products derived from milk or the same frozen milk.

The dairy companies sector freezes milk, cheeses, creams and yogurts, and there are exclusive establishments dedicated to the sale of these products. The use of PROTON for the production of ice creams is especially noteworthy, as it allows the production of top quality ice creams thanks to the perfect freezing of milk and fruit purees, chocolates, etc., used in its production.

In recent years, it has been developed an important frozen food industry for vegan products (without animal components), which freezes its products with PROTON technology as a complementary quality seal.

IV & V RANGE

The so-called 4th and 5th Gama products are foods that have different levels of handling and preparation.

With PROTON, pre-cooked dishes such as gyozas, breaded meats, rice balls, pasta, etc. are frozen, which have contributed to the spectacular boom in this type of food as a consequence of the social changes that have taken place and have triggered the consumption of this type of frozen food.

SEASONAL PRODUCTS

There are many products whose stability on the market is very short due to their seasonality.

These are products that grow or are fished only at certain times of the year.

Since the appearance of PROTON, it is already possible to enjoy these products throughout the year and eliminate their seasonality thanks to the fact that their magnetic freezing provides perfect freezing while maintaining their cell structure and original organoleptic qualities.

It is now normal for many producers to collect as much product as possible in the appropriate fishing and harvesting seasons to freeze them with PROTON and sell them for the rest of the year, ensuring the supply of the product throughout the year and maintaining its high price.





SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS

HIGH VALUE PRODUCTS

Normally, high value products are due to their scarcity (seasonality) or their difficult preservation.

FREEZING AT POINT OF SALE 



One of the most common errors that occur is the purchase of fresh products and their immediate freezing in the home made with freezers not suitable for correct freezing (transition from the fresh to the frozen state), but exclusively for preservation.

PROTON EUROPE has denounced this common practice in the media such as 


In Japan they have solved this problem, offering a freezing service at the same point of sale. The consumer buys the product they want fresh and in the same establishment they freeze it magnetically with PROTON technology so that they can keep it perfectly frozen in the freezer of their home.

In this way, the client is sure that he has bought a fresh product and that he will keep it frozen while maintaining all the original organoleptic qualities. This service is especially useful for freezing Seafood in large supermarkets.

In Europe and America there is still no business or supermarket that offers this innovative service and it can be a great opportunity for those who wish to establish an innovative business concept nonexistent so far.

La Vanguardia

PROTON MEDICAL


PROTON technology is not only limited to freezing food, but its use extends to the medical field.

There are numerous studies conducted on the applicability of PROTON magnetic freezing technology in the field of regenerative medicine, and especially for the freezing of artificial cells (including IPS cells).

In tests carried out by a Japanese company in the sector, it has been possible to demonstrate the higher producibility of artificial cells frozen with PROTON over those frozen by cryogenic methods. Thus, with cryogenic freezing at -80 ° C a reproducibility of 30-40% was achieved while the same cells frozen with PROTON at -35 ° C reproduced at 70-80%, indicating superiority of freezing PROTON over cryogenic freezing.

Previously, thanks to a collaboration with Ryukyu University of Okinawa, various IPS cell freezing experiments had already been carried out.

The results obtained were a reproducibility obtained with the existing freezer (cryogenic) at -80 ° C of 45%, while the PROTON freezing obtained 80%, which already showed the great way to go that PROTON has in the medical sector and especially in the field of freezing artificial cells (including IPS cells)

PROTON CAR

In service currently only in Japan, mobile magnetic freezing technology is another of the great innovations brought by PROTON to the world of freezing.

Both to freeze products from establishments that do not have their own freezers by capacity, or to carry out freezing tests, PROTON has a fleet of trucks that include a PF-15 freezer and a KINOKO defreezer, which move along from the Japanese geography for the freezing in situ, almost always to the places of origin of the raw materials.

It is a totally innovative service that demonstrates the greatness of this freezing technology.
