What IS IQF?

IQF foods are notable for the fact that each individual piece of food is frozen separately from all the others. So that for example, a bag of IQF peas doesn't simply contain a solid block of frozen peas, but rather, each of the individually frozen peas is loose inside the bag. Obviously, this makes IQF foods much easier to work with.
Examples of IQF foods are fruits like blueberries, strawberries, and peaches; vegetables like corn, peas, and green beans; seafood like shrimp and scallops; or poultry, like individual chicken breasts.
The way foods are frozen in the IQF method involves sending the individual food items on a sort of conveyor belt into a blast-freezer that freezes the item very quickly. Because the food items are separate when they go in, they stay separate after they've been frozen.

What are the benefits of iqf fruits?

IQF fruits are picked at their peak with the highest in nutritional value, then it is quickly frozen to preserve the fruit in this form. In most cases, frozen fruits have higher nutritional value compared to the fresh fruits found in grocery stores. Fresh fruits are often harvested before they have reached their peak and artificially ripened during transport to the stores. Once fruits are picked they begin to lose nutritional value, so by the time you eat it most of its nutrients and benefits are lost.

Frozen fruits are not only good for you, but they're so versatile! We use them in all our fruit-based creations including custom mix-its and smoothies.
