Vacuum packaging, technically known as "Sous vide". It is the cooking method that maintains the integrity,of food by heating it for long periods at relatively low temperatures. Undoubtedly, this method has helped kitchen professionals to save cooking time and reduce costs for the restaurateur.
 
In addition, in these uncertain times for the hospitality
industry, candied meats cooked at low temperatures have more than one advantage.

-700 days of expiration. The product is deep frozen and has a long shelf life.
-Mono ration vacuum and calibrated. We will not have any waste, finished product equals very clear profitability.
-Infinity of plate finishes. It is a neutral product without sauce, so that the chef can create his dish to his liking.
-Easy and fast regeneration. The steps to regenerate meat products are easy and simple for all types of kitchen personnel.

To meet this need with guarantees, kitchens must adapt its facilities, equipment and processes, and develop these individualized menus of other dishes. This implies a significant additional costs, which must be added the price differential of gluten-free foods.
In GICARNS, we have adapted our formulations, raw materials, and procedures, to develop products suitable for coeliacs, thereby facilitating and make work in their kitchens.
The process has been carried out in strict rigor, establishing analytical and operational controls needed to provide food and nutritional security essential.
The products have been tested and are presented with the same taste, texture and quality as always, so that its organoleptic quality is not affected.
