Antifreeze Proteins Market: Introduction
Antifreeze proteins are also known as ice structuring proteins. These are a type of polypeptides. Antifreeze proteins are produced from specific plants, fish, insects, bacteria, and fungi, which allow its’ survival in extremely cold environments. Antifreeze proteins are significantly used in the frozen food & beverages industry to prevent food damage.
