What are IQF herbs?

IQF herbs are high-quality ingredients that have been individually quick frozen (IQF) to preserve their freshness and flavour. This process helps keep the natural taste, colour and nutritional qualities of the herbs intact. The freezing process also helps prevent oxidation. That’s better for food producers and restaurants because air drying herbs has the potential to cause shrinkage and loss of flavour, colour and nutrition. Also, IQF herbs from Kiril Mischeff are perfectly safe to eat and have been processed in accordance with food safety standards and are free from contaminants and pathogens.

What are the advantages of using IQF herbs instead of fresh herbs?

Using IQF herbs has many advantages over fresh herbs including a longer shelf life, consistent quality, less preparation time and lower storage costs. Other benefits include using herbs that retain their natural taste, colour and nutritional qualities for longer, making them a great choice for any food product. IQF herbs should be added just before serving, as they will retain their flavour and texture better if not cooked for too long. Other benefits include less risk of contamination and spoilage and the ability to easily portion out herbs for specific recipes. IQF herbs can be used as an excellent alternative for fresh herbs in many recipes. They are convenient and provide the same flavour, colour and nutritional qualities as fresh alternatives. IQF herbs can also be used for baking as an alternative to fresh or dried herbs. The flavour and colour will remain intact when baked into cakes, breads and other sweet treats.

What types of IQF herbs are available?

There is a wide variety of IQF herbs available, such as basil, parsley, thyme, rosemary, sage, oregano and chives. IQF herbs can be used in a wide variety of dishes, from soups and stews to salads and sauces. They also make great toppings on pizzas, pastas and other savoury dishes. In many ways, IQF herbs are much more versatile than their dried counterparts as they can be used in a wider variety of dishes with no loss of flavour and texture. They are also higher in vitamins and minerals than dried herbs
