This study aimed to identify in which extent cooling rate in pork subjected to superchilling influences the final weight loss after storage. Different cooling systems (brines at −15 °C and -9 °C, forced air at −18 °C and still air −24 °C) led to a range of cooling rates in pork model systems. The ice crust on the surface of pork grew faster in those systems with a higher energy flux. Higher cooling rates led to lower weight loss after superchilling storage, highlighting the importance of using fast cooling systems for superchilled pork.
