IQF stands for individual quick freezing. It is a common freezing method in the foodservice industry and consists of freezing individual pieces of food separately from the other pieces at extremely low temperatures. IQF is also referred to as flash freezing, quick freeze, or super freeze.
IQF is a technology that allows the freezing on an individual piece of product separately from the others. Due to this, the quality of the finished IQF product is superior compared to the one of a product frozen by cold store freezing.
By using IQF technology, the products keep their initial shape without any damage to the surface, and have a higher shelf life. This is because the product does not get exposed to much air in the IQF freezer.
Because the products get in contact with the people, there is a considerable risk for contamination when freezing products in a Cold Store freezer. With a modern in-line process and the IQF freezer, it is possible to achieve zero contact between the product and the human being.
Apricot is a small, orange-colored fruit that is closely related to peaches, plums, and cherries. It has a soft, juicy flesh that is sweet and slightly tart, with a flavor that is often described as “apricoty”.
Apricots are a good source of dietary fiber, vitamins A and C, and potassium. They are also rich in antioxidants, which can help protect against cellular damage and inflammation.
Apricots are naturally high in antioxidants, which guard against environmental damage from sunlight, pollution, and cigarette smoke. These compounds may benefit your skin by lowering your risk of wrinkles and sunburn.
Apricots are an excellent source of beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and vitamins C and E. These nutrients protect your eyes against damage.
