New Materials Causing a Stir: Antifreeze Proteins (AFPs) Developments anticipated for applications in the fields of foodstuffs, medicine, manufacturing, and more

Nichirei Corporation, a leading company in the frozen foods and refrigerated logistics sectors, will exhibit their antifreeze protein (AFP) materials in the course of their first ever participation as exhibitors at nano tech 2017, the international nanotechnology exhibition and conference. AFPs are proteins possessing the following kinds of unique functions:

  1. Controlling ice crystal growth: binding to ice crystals to prevent the ice from growing into larger forms, helping protect the quality of frozen goods
  2. Protecting cells: stabilizing cell membranes by binding with them, extending the cells’ life span
