What are IQF chillies?
Individually quick frozen chillies are ideal ingredients for food manufacturers or food service companies, in particular those requiring visible, identifiable pieces of chilli in their finished product.
That’s because the IQF process prevents ice crystals and keeps the chillies free-flowing and individual – while helping the chilli retain it’s natural flavour, colour and heat.
The quick-freeze process also helps the chilli maintain its nutritional value (chillies boast high levels of vitamin A and C), helping to bring a number of health benefits to a finished dish.

What are IQF Chillies?
IQF chillies are individually quick-frozen chilli peppers, which have been frozen straight after harvest, to lock in their flavour and nutritional value. All our IQF chilli products are sourced from trusted growers and suppliers in China, and they are a healthy choice, as they contain the same amount of vitamins and minerals as fresh chilli peppers, due to being frozen at their peak ripeness. Our IQF chillies can be stored in the freezer for up to 12 months, when stored correctly and at temperatures below minus 18°C.
