Why Should You Use Dry Ice Packs Instead of Gel Ice Packs?

Every day, millions of packages are sent through the mail in the United States.

However, when transporting frozen food, the process gets a little more challenging, especially in warmer temperatures. To help battle the heat, you'll need to find a way to keep your frozen products cold and fresh till they reach their final destination. The best way to do this is by using gel packs or dry ice packs.

So, which is the better option?

Shipping frozen food across the country is a difficult undertaking, simply because the product must remain frozen. If the food thaws, especially if it's a perishable item like meat or dairy, it will not only spoil but could also become dangerous to human consumption. As a result, ensuring that the frozen food remains frozen during shipment is critical. We recommend dry ice packs over gel packs when choosing between the two most frequent solutions for keeping food cold. Why do you ask? To find out, read on.

  • It’s a Lot Colder
  • Dry ice packs can keep frozen food far colder than a gel ice pack. This is advantageous when you’re shipping food since it reduces the chances of any bacterial growth forming.

  • Lasts for a Longer Time
  • Another advantage of using dry ice packs for shipping perishables is that it keeps the product frozen and colder for much longer. Because dry ice is so cold, you won't have to worry about monitoring or replacing it on a regular basis.

  • No More Soggy Food
  • Melting and condensation can be major problems, particularly when shipping meat and shellfish. Water can hasten the decomposition process and produce a slew of issues, including mold and fungal growth on the products themselves. Gel packs tend to melt faster, which greatly increases the danger of water contamination due to condensation. Dry ice packs on the hand do not melt. As a result, there is no danger of water contamination.
