What are IQF gooseberries?

IQF stands for ‘Individually Quick Frozen’ and is a method of freezing fruits and vegetables at very low temperatures. This preserves their nutrients, taste and colour for an extended shelf life. IQF gooseberries are generally harvested from the field, then washed and dried before being frozen. The individual berries are then put onto a conveyor belt, which is cooled using liquid nitrogen until they reach the desired temperature. This process helps the gooseberries retain their rich source of dietary fibre and antioxidants. They also contain vitamin C, iron, calcium and magnesium.

How should IQF gooseberries be stored?

IQF gooseberries should be kept in an airtight container in the freezer at all times. It is important to keep them away from other foods as they can easily absorb their flavours and smells. The gooseberries can be used for baking, and are also perfect for making jams, jellies and sauces. The gooseberries will typically last for up to one year in the freezer if kept at a constant temperature. They can be thawed before use and the best way to do this is by placing them in a colander and running lukewarm water over them. This will help to preserve the integrity of the berries while allowing them to thaw quickly.

Do IQF gooseberries contain any allergens?

No, IQF gooseberries do not contain any known allergens. Along with being a good source of dietary fibre, they provide up to three times more fibre than fresh berries because they have been frozen soon after being harvested. It helps too that IQF gooseberries are generally processed using organic methods, which ensures that the berries maintain their nutrient content and flavour. IQF gooseberries from Kiril Mischeff bring the convenience of a frozen product, while retaining their excellent fresh flavour and colour. They are available in 10kg cartons.
