What is IQF courgette?

An IQF courgette (or zucchini) is a frozen product that is prepared by slicing or dicing before flash freezing them at extremely cold temperatures. This process helps to preserve the courgette’s natural colour, flavour and aroma, as well as its nutritional value. Courgette is a rich source of Vitamin C, potassium and manganese, as well as dietary fibre. The benefits of using IQF courgette include their longer shelf-life and they require less time being spent on food preparation.

What sizes of IQF Courgette are available?

Kiril Mischeff can provide IQF courgettes in a variety of cut sizes to meet your individual needs, including dice, slices and julienne strips. Our IQF courgette products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and do not contain any allergens or preservatives. Also, the individual pieces of courgette mean that it is easier to measure and incorporate into recipes.

How long will IQF Courgette keep?

IQF courgette can be stored at a temperature of -18°C or below and will remain safe to consume for up to 12 months. The benefit of IQF courgettes is that they can be cooked directly from frozen with minimal preparation time. This makes it an ideal choice for quick and easy meals. Our IQF courgette can be used in a variety of recipes and dishes, from stir-fries to soups and in pre-prepared meals, such as pizzas or pasta dishes.

How Do IQF Courgettes Retain Their Quality Post-Defrosting?

IQF courgettes maintain their quality post-defrosting due to the rapid freezing process involved in IQF (Individual Quick Freezing).

This technique quickly freezes the courgettes, preventing the formation of large ice crystals which can damage cell structure and result in a mushy texture upon thawing.

As a result, IQF courgettes retain their natural colour, flavour, aroma, and nutritional value even after defrosting.

This ensures that the courgettes are almost as good as fresh when used in cooking, making them an excellent choice for maintaining quality in food products.
