Vacuum fryers are a newer alternative to the old deep fryers and these vacuum fryers come with a multitude of advantages. Vacuum fryers use low pressure and low temperatures for the process of frying. A wide variety of vegetables, fruits, fish, and meat are fried through these vacuum fryers. It is used for preparing a whole lot of deserts and snacks.
As with any product, vacuum fryer also comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Let us have a look at some of these.
The advantages can be broadly divided into 2 types, economical and qualitative.
The technology adapted in these fryers has the potential to reduce the oil content of these food products to a great extent, making the snacks a healthier option. This also enables the snacks to be more crisp and provides longer shelf life as compared to the regular deep fryers. The frying process of vacuum fryers helps preserve the color, nature, flavour, consistency, and most importantly helps in retaining the nutritional feature. This process of cooking/frying through the contact of hot oil and removing the moisture of the food has been proved to be more healthy.
There are not many disadvantages, nonetheless the major flip side being the cost factor. The investment required for the vacuum fryers is far higher than that of the regular deep-frying machines, which is not affordable by everyone.
Vacuum Fry is used for drying food or moisture adjustment through the regulation of oil temperature. Using oil by vacuum fryer for drying is the most common method in modern industry. Compared with other drying methods, vacuum frying makes it easier to maintain natural colors and flavors of the finished products in a short time.
In the reduced pressure situation, utilizing the fact that the boiling point of water drops greatly, the material’s color could be remained at a lower oil temperature during the drying progress.
It has the characteristic that the evaporation amount becomes the maximum in the first 2 minutes after the frying start, which makes unique texture different from normal pressure frying.
No precious vitamins and no nutrition are lost in the process
Compared with conventional fryers, the food products made by VIVACUUM vacuum frying method have a significantly lower oil content.
The original taste and flavour are fully preserved and ‘sealed-in’ in the finished products. No fading.
Bacteria do not increase in the dried materials and products can be sold at normal temperature
Machine has been easy of maintenance and easy operation user friendly
