In recent years, hypochlorous acid water ice has gradually become a new type of non-thermal sterilization preservation technology. This technology not only has the advantages of the low temperature of ordinary ice but also combines the characteristics of hypochlorous acid water with rapid and broad-spectrum killing microorganisms and good fresh-keeping ability, and the hypochlorous acid water ice can be reduced entirely to non-toxic. It has the advantages of no ordinary residual water and no pollution to the environment after discharge and has broad application prospects to preserve aquatic products.
