The number one question we get asked concerning shredding protein is this: should I be shredding hot or cold?
It’s a legitimate question to ask. The temperature of your protein product when you run it through a shredding machine plays a big role in the consistency and look of the shreds.
Choose the wrong temperature (hot versus cold), and you’ll wind up with shreds you weren’t expecting — and, as many do, blame the shredding machine for the less than desirable outcome to your shreds.
Answering this question starts with having a goal in mind for your shreds.
