Uncovering the benefits of IQF
While parents and adults in general are switching to frozen food and other snacks, a guilt however prevails. When parents were asked if they felt guilty to serve their children frozen foods, 55% responded in the affirmative because of the presence of preservatives in frozen snacks. Meanwhile, 51% Indians claimed they would feel less guilty to consume preservative-free frozen snacks
Enter- Individual Quick Freezing or IQF technology. The unique technology which dates back to 1960s, involves quick freezing of individual pieces as against freezing the items in bulk. This ultra-rapid freezing technique is designed to halt the activities of the microorganisms which might cause decay in the food.
