The purpose of this project was to study and identify the effects of different freezing conditions on cranberries in Ocean SprayÂs Sweetened Dried Cranberry (SDC) process. By understanding how different freezing conditions affect the cellular structure of cranberries, these effects can be better accounted for during the SDC manufacturing process. The project involved a preliminary SDC lab-scale process design, and the development of a freezing method for yielding full batches of cranberries that underwent uniform freezing conditions. The freezing method concluded by this yearÂs project should be used by future teams in carrying and testing batches through the lab-scale process.
