Physical Properties of some commonly refrigerated food, drink and other items.
To deter plagiarists Mistral regrets that searches must be limited to ten tries per 24 hour period.

The procedure below contains a representative sample of a few hundred database items only. Actual programs can contain thousands of databases, each with many thousands of data items.

Physical properties comprising Specific Heat above freezing temperature, Specific Heat below freezing temperature (both expressed in kilojoules per kilogram per kelvin (degree) or kJ/kg/K); Latent Heat (in kilojoules per kilogram (kJ/kg)); Heat of Respiration (mean, in kilojoules per kilogram kJ/kg) and Freezing Temperature (mean, in Celsius degrees (°C)) may be found by entering the name of the subject item in the box below.
Imperial values and equivalent units are also simultaneously displayed.

Enter three or more consecutive letters of the required search item (Eg. 'ber' for 'berries'). ostrich.pngClick on item icon(s) above when they appear to display physical properties.

This procedure for finding these physical properties has been provided by Mistral Associates as a free and philanthropic service to all individuals and organisations primarily having an interest in the food service, production, storage, distribution and refrigeration industries. Mistral Associates makes no claim as to their accuracy and does not accept responsibility for the consequences of their use or application. Mistral Associates also prohibits retrieval or use of any information from the procedure or information available on this or any other of its website pages for the purpose of damaging the vested interests, both financial and the reputation, of the organisation known as Mistral Associates or of any of its staff members or shareholders.

The physical properties displayed have been researched by Mistral Associates and in every case values for each item have been found to be publicly displayed in more than one freely available credible reference. They are in common usage and therefore considered to be information in the public domain. If any individual or representative of any organisation does not agree with the inclusion of such data for any item in the publicly available procedure on this website they may write to Mistral Associates at the address as displayed through the 'Contact' link provided on these website pages, stating their reasons and qualification for their objection. Full and respectful consideration will be given and if deemed necessary, appropriate action taken to delete or amend such item(s).
