What is IQF pear?
IQF pear is the perfect ingredient for food manufacturers who require real, identifiable pieces of pear in their finished product.
It’s made by peeling, coring and dicing the pear to size, then freezing it at extremely high temperatures to lock in all the pear’s natural flavour and characteristics.
The IQF process also prevents the formation of ice crystals, ensuring a free-flowing, easy-to-use product.
It can then simply be defrosted for use in desserts, bakery products, dairy items and more.
