Individual Quick Freezing (IQF) is the latest and safest technology in freezing fruits and vegetables. IQF technology freezes the produce in under ten minutes. The faster freezing process prevents the formation of large ice crystals which destroys the cell membrane of the fruits/vegetables. This is the reason why you get our frozen berries, fruits, and vegetables in the same state as it was harvested.
Numerous studies have shown that frozen produce have higher levels of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants compared to fresh. This is because IQF produce is harvested at peak ripeness and has reached its full nutrient potential. Whereas fresh ones are harvested unripe to prevent damage during transport.
