What is IQF beetroot?
IQF beetroot is picked, peeled and diced to size, then rapidly frozen at extremely cold temperatures. This helps to keep the product free-flowing (as ice crystals can’t form), making it perfect for any application requiring individual and identifiable beetroot chunks.
All the natural fresh flavour, colour and aroma of the beetroot remains even after defrosting, while the nutritional benefits of the beetroot also stay in tact.
Indeed, IQF beetroot is an excellent source of iron and folate, as well as a host of other vitamins and minerals.
