It also increases the nucleic acid in the food which helps to protect the smell and taste of the food.

It is also useful for the storage of delicate foods which unsuitable for the freezer such shoots or vegetables are boiled eggs, bamboo used in condiment. as OPERATING The F.I.R lamp is temperature.
