Hi Jyllian:


Yesterday, CNN has an article that you may be interested in with handling food products prepared by adding liquid nitrogen at the point of sale, immediately before consumption.


Here is a link directly to the FDA about it:


Hope this information is helpful!

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Restaurant use of liquid nitrogen for ice cream?


Hi all,


A colleague, Kerri Jansen, is working on a video about using liquid nitrogen to make ice cream in a restaurant-type setting. Do any of you have experience with safety standards for this, or can you point us to a possible source? We want to make sure we do this well.


Some of the questions Kerri is looking to answer are:


Would safety guidelines for liquid nitrogen use in a restaurant differ from the standards set for lab use? If so, what differences would be taken into consideration?


What is the proper way to handle liquid nitrogen in a restaurant setting, from a safety standpoint? (Said differently, what can consumers look for to know the liquid nitrogen used to prepare their food is being handled safely?)


You can reply to Kerri directly at k_jansen**At_Symbol_Here**


Thank you!
