• Our food items are vacuum-sealed and “flash frozen” in their own airtight packages. Flash-freezing is a revolutionary process of quick freezing (usually within seconds). This locks in all the flavors, juices, vitamins and minerals and allows the products to keep perfectly for long periods. Each product is held in this condition until it is thawed, ensuring that it will be just as fresh as when it was frozen. • “Flash” freezing means Horizon uses sophisticated, ultra-low temperature freezers to freeze their cuts immediately after they are individually vacuum packed. This quick freeze process is absolutely essential to maintain the flavor and texture of Horizon’s fine food products. Horizon’s “flash freezing” technique ensures that there is no deterioration in the quality of the product you receive.

I have been asked this question a million times over the years. Seafood should be frozen as soon as possible after being caught. However, you can actually ruin some species of fish by freezing it too quickly (to cold) as it bursts the cells in the flesh. You can freeze it too slowly as well. The best temperature is -40 with a -10 core temperature in less than 5 hours. If you take two pieces of fish and clank them together after freezing, they should sound like striking two pieces of glass together.

Flash-freezing is an accelerated process in which fish are frozen immediately after they’re harvested. It uses ultra-low temperatures to freeze fish solid in a matter of seconds. In fact, flash-freezing allows fish to be caught, processed, and frozen solid in a matter of hours, not days. By minimizing the timeframe between harvest and production, flash-freezing “captures” the salmon at its peak of perfection. At Vital Choice, we hold our flash-frozen fish at a constant -10° F, and then pack it in dry ice before shipping.

Our food items are flash frozen and vacuum sealed in hermetically sealed packages. Flash freezing is the space age technology of quick freezing (usually within seconds). This locks in all the flavors, juices, vitamins and minerals and allows the products to keep for long periods of time. Each product is kept in this frozen state until it is thawed, ensuring that it will be just as fresh as when it was frozen.
