Food Processing Blog – Vegetable Freezing Information

I would like to know if there is anyone out there still looking at this blog, so will occasionally write a post and ask anyone interested in such information to let me know. If you only use the blog via searches, there is little value in my continuing on a non formal basis.

Vegetable freezing is described in the INPhO Toolkit published by the FAO.

Downloadable pdf available online

This is not a handbook but a rather simple and short outline of vegetable freezing. It cover all you would like to know in a few pages that are (apart from the English) easy to read.

If you are interested in receiving this kind of information regularly, please email me and add any suggestions you might have.

DIGIVU – Food Processing Blog – Fever Tree Mixers

GOOGLE Analytics shows me people still find and appreciate this collection of Food Processing data, which I haven’t updated for years. In fact I have hardly used the site in years, but am now planning to revive and use digivu.co.za, what for – I’m not yet sure.

So to restart, Food Processing Blogging, I found this company making mixers interesting because it has gone the premium route and because it’s photographs are so attractive.

See website at https://fever-tree.com

They use the fact that ‘3/4s of your drink is mixer”, their focus on exotic high quality raw materials and their contribution to combatting malaria to place them apart from the bulk market.

Summer in the City – Le Gros Chigy

Having only arrived here recently, I can’t make those “…haven’t seen it like this since…’ statements. But, this reminds me of last year in South Africa it’s so dry!
