What Are IQF Frozen Fruits?

IQF frozen fruit products are fruits that have been frozen using the individual rapid freezing (IQF) method. This method does not allow large ice crystals to form in the plant cells, and since each part is individually frozen, the particles do not stick together and the final product is not frozen into a solid mass.

IQF technology creates smaller ice crystals that don’t spoil the product as much as traditional freezing methods, resulting in better and fresher quality of fruits and vegetables as it does not create Large ice crystals can damage cell walls.

Individual freezing also means there’s no need to defrost the entire product before use, so you can get what you need. This makes IQF a very convenient technology for food preparation and home cooks alike.
