When processing poultry, flake ice is used to bring down the temperature of the components to an acceptable temperature. Flake ice can also be used in both transportation and in keeping the food produce safe in transition and maintaining the quality.
During production when the bird is separate, all components need to be cooled as they are sent to their various factories for further processing or the manufacturing of food products. To make sure all components of the bird are suitable for human consumption, products must be cooled as soon as possible. Unlike other types of ice, flake ice has a larger surface area which means that heat transfer can occur faster, speeding up the cooling process.
