Chilling of chicken meat
Chilling of chicken meat

Posted on 21 June, 2023

Companies chill their chicken prior to shipping and print on their labels the chilling method. There are two methods in chilling:
1- water chilling,
2- air chilling,
the second method is far better to the value of your dollar. The first method (water chilling) causes the chicken drum to shrivel to approximately 2/3 of the precooking size due to water loss from meat, while the second method ( air chilling) does affect the size of precooking meat.

Thanks to Judy Abernethy for her educating moment.
