|Abstract:||Ready-meals are items of convenience and life styles, and are consumed predominantly by one-person households, working couples, and increasingly by the elderly. Chilled ready-meals are perceived to be of better quality than frozen meals. One of the main problems with chilled ready-meals, however, is their relatively short shelf-life, and frozen ready-meals are bought more often due to their longer shelf-life. Freeze-chilling of food involves freezing and frozen storage followed by thawing and chilled storage.|
