The French fries taste is related to the way of frying

Taizy French fries production machine manufacturer pays attention to the taste and frying method of French fries to improve the french fries deep fryer machine

Performance. After many experiments and customer feedback, Taizy learned about the process of frying French fries and the way to ensure the taste of French fries.

When frying fries, the moment the fries enter the hot oil, the moisture on the surface of the fries will immediately vaporize. It ejects air currents similar to volcanic eruptions, causing splashes of hot oil. The surface of the fries will become crispy due to drying. In the inside of the fries, the temperature will rise sharply, and the water vapor that does not evaporate through the surface in time will be trapped inside, steaming the potatoes to achieve a fluffy taste, which complements the crispy skin.

How long does it take to fry frozen French fries?

Some people think that the best French fries should be deep-fried twice, the first time using low-temperature frying and the second time using high-temperature frying. However, the secondary frying method may not be a general industry standard. For example, McDonald's will first blanch French fries, then freeze them, and then deep-fry them on site. However, McDonald's approach is more popular in the production of French fries in large industries. Blanching can reduce the acrylamide content in French fries. The fried potatoes can form a uniform color. So blanching and then frying can make the color of the fries more attractive. In this industry practice, many French fries manufacturers have gradually obtained an optimal French fries frying time and temperature. French fries are generally fried for 40~60S, and the temperature is controlled at 160~180℃.
