New Model P125W/82 for Re-Heating Food
For UK customers, Comark has also launched the new Waterproof Pocketherm model P125W/82, which complies with the United Kingdom Food Standards Agency “House Rules Temperature Control” for HACCP, that reheated food must reach an internal temperature of 82°C. With an upper cooked temperature limit set to 82°C, food is reheated perfectly every time.
How can temperatures be used to keep food safe?
In catering operations, the following practices are recommended to keep food safe:
|Refrigeration||A food temperature of 8°C or below is effective in controlling the multiplication of most bacteria in perishable food. It is recommended practice to operate refrigerators and chills at 5°C or below.|
|Freezing||Freezing of food at temperatures of -18°C or below will prevent bacteria multiplying.|
|Cooking||Temperatures of 75°C or above are effective in destroying almost all types of bacteria. However, cooking temperatures below this level are also effective provided that the food is held at these temperatures for a suitable time period.|
|Hot Holding||Temperatures above 63°C will control the multiplication of bacteria in hot food.|
|Cooling||Food should be cooled as quickly as possible and then refrigerated. This will limit the growth of any bacteria or germination of spores that may be present.|
|Reheating||All food that has previously been heated and is to be re-heated, must be raised to a temperature of 82°C, which will ensure that food has been reheated to a safe and, in some cases, legally required temperature. Using a suitable time/temperature combination will also ensure that food has been reheated safely should higher temperatures be detrimental to the quality of the food, for example reaching a core temperature of 70°C for 2 minutes.|
