Proton-Frozen Ahi Poke Chunks
This product is available during these seasons:
Poke, which means “to cut into pieces,” is as culturally significant to Hawaii as hamburgers are to the mainland. Dating back to the islands’ first Polynesian settlers, the dish combined chunks of reef fish, seaweed, kukui nuts and salt. As modern fishing techniques emerged, Ahi replaced reef fish and today remains the preference for most variations of poke.
What is Proton-Frozen?
Proton-freezing is a quick-freeze technology that combines evenly distributed electromagnetic waves and cold air to reduce ice crystal formation and cell membrane damage. As a result, taste and texture are preserved naturally, without any additives or chemicals. Color is also comparable to fresh if fish is properly stored and defrosted*.
*Certain species, like tuna, naturally turn brown once exposed to air or if stored in a traditional freezer. Proton freezing technology slows this process but does not prevent it. For best results, we recommend placing proton frozen tuna in the coldest part of your freezer and storing for no more than 7 days. When ready to eat, slowly defrost in refrigerator and consume within same 24 hours.
