What are IQF plums?
IQF plums are ‘Individually Quick Frozen’ (IQF) which have been frozen at a very low temperature for preservation. The plums retain their unique shape, flavour and texture even after being frozen, making them ideal for use in the food industry. The main advantage of using IQF plums is that they can be stored and used at any time of the year, without needing to defrost or prepare them. The high-quality IQF plum products from Kiril Mischeff are available diced, halved or quartered, and are supplied in 10kg quantities.
What are the benefits of IQF plums?
The main benefit of IQF plums is that their long shelf life means that chefs and food producers can have a supply of fresh-tasting plums available all year round. Also, the unique shapes and textures of IQF plums make them ideal for a variety of different food applications. These plums are a healthy choice and are a good source of dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals. IQF plums can remain frozen for up to 12 months without any deterioration in taste or texture.
What types of dishes can I use IQF plums in?
IQF plums can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. They are particularly well suited for fruit salads, tarts, pies, custards, sorbets and smoothies. They can also be used as a substitute for fresh plums in sauces, chutneys and jams. Some plum fans might be able to tell the difference between fresh and IQF plums – fresh plums tend to have a softer texture and are usually darker in colour than IQF plums.
