IQF Sweet Corn

Sweet corn, also known as sugar corn is a variety of maize with high sugar content. Unlike field corn varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and mature, sweet corn is picked when immature (at milk stage) and prepared and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain. Since the process of maturation of sweet corn involves converting sugar to starch, sweet corn needs consumed fresh or canned or frozen before the kernels become tough and starchy.

To provide rich taste of sweet corn we manufacture IQF sweet corn kernels by de-husking and de-kernelling the matured, soft, juicy and tender sorted cobs of sweet corn. Free flowing kernels are separated manually, washed, blanched and dewatered. The acquired product is then passed through individual quick freezer (IQF) or blast freezer at -40°C and then sieved, inspected, packed and passed through metal detector. Overall, the process is carried out maintaining strict hygienic conditions throughout processing line.
