A revolution in cooking and meal preparation will allow consumers and food service providers to cook food like never before using RF energy, claimed an article published by Food Processing. RF amplifiers used by Goji’s technology can control frequency, phase and amplitude of RF energy, thereby allowing much more control than attainable by microwave magnetrons today.
“Imagine loading rows of plated raw meals into an oven and coming back 10 minutes later to serve meals cooked to each consumer’s order. All done simultaneously in one pass through the oven.” – Food Processing.
Goji technology not only heats food but also uses sensors to wirelessly detect reflections from the food medium. The data collected is sampled digitally and fed into a smart algorithm which can determine the optimal combination of heating parameters.
The new technology will provide both consumers and food service providers with a new way to prepare food faster without compromising food quality. The ability to prepare multiple components in tandem makes room for a new level of convenience and practicality. A less practical but equally impressive application is Goji’s ability to cook a whole fish in a frozen block of ice. It is difficult to grasp Goji technology’s full potential; however, it is clear that it will completely revolutionize kitchen as we know it.
RF cooking utilizes a high power solid-state amplifier which, as part of a complete RF module, transmits radio wave energy into an object to heat it. Unlike the magnetron in a microwave oven, the digital RF module can accurately control the frequency, amplitude and phase of the radio-waves. When combined with Goji’s proprietary closed-feedback sensing algorithm, the RF module enables more uniform and consistent cooking results, while shortening and simplifying the cooking process.
Goji develops and markets RF cooking technologies for household, commercial and industrial applications in the food industry. The novel Goji™ technology facilitates controlled and responsive heating, delivering unprecedented cooking performance. The company holds a broad IP portfolio, with over 200 issued and pending patents on its technology. Goji provides a full range of licensing, design and manufacturing services to commercial and white goods appliance manufacturers. For more information, visit www.gojifoodsolutions.com.
