Title:
DEVICE FOR ADJUSTING TEMPERATURE OF FROZEN FOOD, AND PACKAGING CONTAINER
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/200022
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
To provide a device for adjusting the temperature of frozen food, whereby the temperature of ice cream-type products such as frozen drinks and frozen confectionery can be adjusted in a short period of time, and smooth and soft processed foods can be obtained. This invention is a device for adjusting the temperature of frozen food, characterized by including: a setting mechanism 20 in which a temperature-adjustment object is placed; a heat-exchange pressure-application mechanism 30 for exchanging heat with the temperature-adjustment object placed in the setting mechanism 20, while pressure is applied to the temperature-adjustment object; and a serving mechanism 40 for receiving the temperature-adjustment object of which the temperature has been adjusted, and serving the temperature-adjustment object in a predetermined container. Application of pressure under heat exchange makes it possible to adjust the temperature of frozen food in a short period of time. The temperature of the entire frozen food can be uniformly adjusted, and non-uniformity and instability in the quality of the food due to uneven temperature adjustment are avoided. Because the temperature-adjusted food is served in the predetermined container by a series of operations, the frozen food is prevented from being exposed to the exterior or adhering to machinery (the device) from the temperature adjustment until the serving.
