Producing high-quality IQF mango requires performant food processing machinery
One of the main ways to prevent losses at peak harvest periods and to maximize your offerings is to use performant food processing machinery in order to IQF freeze mango. Before freezing, mango can undergo several operations such as washing, peeling, destoning, grading, cutting, and chilling. However, one of the most challenging aspects of freezing mango is achieving good separation and a final product which resembles its fresh counterpart, when defrosted.
In order to achieve the best freezing result, you must use efficient and technologically advanced food processing machinery during processing. The IQF technology developed by OctoFrost is one of the most innovative ways to process all kinds of tropical fruits, even soft and sticky products like mango.
Some tropical fruits are extremely sticky because of their naturally high Brix level (sugar and minerals content) and tend to stick together forming blocks or lumps when frozen. Mango is no exception and, if not processed correctly using performant food processing machinery, it will stick together and won't be free-flowing, as required for IQF processing. This is where the OctoFrostTM processing technology surpasses its competitors:
The main advantage of the OctoFrostTM IQF tunnel freezer, one of the most technologically advanced pieces of food processing machinery on the market today, is that it's designed with up to five freezing zones which quickly freeze the surface of the fruit pieces, in order to avoid lump formation and dehydration. The aerodynamics, combined with the movement of the bedplates, ensure that there will be no belt marks on the surface of the product, nor damage on its corners. Moreover, the additional features of the bed vibrator, wave plate, and pulsator will separate the products effortlessly. This ensures the highest quality end-product, by keeping the mango's natural quality.
When it comes to the food processing machinery, the vast majority of processors prefer a single supplier for their complete IQF processing equipment. This is very important since the final freezing result could be compromised if the equipment that comes before the IQF freezer in the processing line is not optimized. OctoFrost offers a complete IQF processing line, which gives processors the advantage of having the most effective equipment and a single supplier for the whole line.
The OctoFrostTM IQF processing line consists of the following pieces of food processing machinery: IF Blancher, IF Cooker, IF Chiller, and IQF tunnel freezer.
