Today we are talking about the advantages of the IQF (Individual Quick Freezing) freezing technique, the innovative and profitable way in which we preserve our artichokes. But what makes it so special? Here are some of the reasons why it is so useful:

Quality preservation

IQF freezing makes the difference by allowing each food item to be frozen individually. This process prevents the formation of large ice crystals, which ensures the quality, texture, flavour and nutritional value of the artichokes. By minimising moisture loss, the freshness of freshly harvested artichokes is guaranteed.

Increased freshness from harvesting

IQF frozen artichokes benefit from rapid freezing, capturing their freshness and flavour at optimum ripeness. This method becomes a field-to-table extension, ensuring that every bite retains the essence of the field.

Ease of handling and less waste

Individually freezing IQF products makes them easier to handle, giving flexibility in meal preparation and reducing waste. The ability to use only the amount needed, rather than batches, improves efficiency in the kitchen and minimises wastage.

Ice crystal reduction

The speed of the IQF process not only ensures freshness, but also minimises the formation of ice crystals. This is not only aesthetically appealing, but protects the cellular integrity of the artichokes, keeping their structure intact and attractive.

Extended shelf life

IQF frozen foods have a longer shelf life compared to other freezing methods. Therefore, this allows us to store food safely for extended periods without compromising its quality.

Increased food safety

The speed of the IQF method not only preserves quality, but also keeps food at safe temperatures, significantly reducing the risk of growth of harmful bacteria and microorganisms.

Variety of culinary applications

The versatility of IQF frozen food is another of its strengths. From ready meals to packaged foods, sauces, desserts and more, the possibilities are endless.

In short, IQF freezing is not just a preservation technique, but a revolution in the search for new ways to preserve the freshness, quality and food safety of our products.

Only in this way, thanks to the constant updating of methods and machinery, can we continue to offer an excellent line of preserves to satisfy the different needs of our customers.
