This hypothesis begs the question: How cold can something be stored in stable liquid state without freezing? The freezing point of a substance depends on its water content. An orange will not freeze until its temperature is below -2.1°C.
During the period from 2006 until 2018 the authors undertook a series to studies to determine the benefits of cold shock inhibitors, cryoprotectants, compounds that promote desiccation resistance, and increase membrane plasticity during cooling.
