Why do we use frozen fruit?
To ensure our customers receive the best tasting smoothies with the maximum nutritional benefit – we make all of our smoothies with Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) fruits. This means we have access to the highest quality fruits, all year round and we know that no damaged or poor quality fruit will ever make its way into one of our smoothies, ever. Guaranteed.
Not only this, but our IQF fruit often contains more goodness and more vitamins than fresh fruit.
What is IQF technology?
With IQF technology the fruit is flash-frozen in one or two seconds, instead of the old fashioned way of over several hours. This IQF process locks in the goodness and nutrition of the fruit – for life.
Why does IQF fruit make better Smoothies?
The Best Quality – You always get the the very best quality of ingredients in every one of our smoothies because we use IQF fruit specially grown and selected for Smoothie Solutions. There is no damaged or over-ripe fruit – ever. Guaranteed.
The Best Taste – Flash-frozen (IQF) fruit tastes better than pasteurized fruit. Smoothies that you find on the supermarket shelves in bottles or cartons have been pasteurized. This means the fruit has been cooked, which reduces the nutritional content and changes the flavour of the fruit from “fresh” to “cooked”. Our IQF frozen fruit is not pasteurized and retains the taste, goodness, flavour and nutrition of fresh fruit. Our fruit is simply picked, washed, cut and frozen – with no cooking at any time, whatsoever. Our Smoothies are ALWAYS “Freshly Made”.
The Best Nutrition – Our fruit is picked, washed, prepared and rapidly quick frozen and usually the whole process takes place within two hours. The actual flash-freeze process that locks in the vitamins and the enzymes of the fruit is accomplished in just one or two seconds and the nutrients of the fruit are preserved for the life of the product – which is well over two years. Fresh fruit very often contains less vitamins and nutrients than our IQF fruit, as nutrients are lost almost immediately after picking. Fruit in the shop can be several months old.
The Best Recipes – Our IQF Smoothie Sachets contain special combinations of fruit and berries mixed according to our tried and tested, secret recipes. Every smoothie tastes great – every time.
Less Preparation – There’s no need to do any washing, cleaning, peeling, cutting, chopping, scraping or slicing of fruit – with our IQF quick frozen Smoothie Sachets – it’s all done for you.
No Waste – Every Smoothie Solutions sachet contains exactly the right amount of quick-frozen fruit to make one perfect smoothie.
Stable Prices – Our IQF Smoothie sachets cost the same price all year round. Guaranteed. Fresh fruit prices vary enormously from month to month, according to availability and the seasons.
Constant Availability – Unlike fresh fruit, our IQF Smoothie sachets are available from January to December with no breaks in supply. Fresh fruits are of course only available according to the season.
How many portions of fruit in one smoothie?
Every one of our Smoothies contains 2.5 portions of the government’s recommended daily allowance of fruit. That´s half of your daily recommended 5 portions of fruit in one drink! Each IQF smoothie sachet has been analyzed by an independent, internationally recognized laboratory so we know exactly what´s in each and every smoothie sachet.
What is a Smoothie sachet?
A smoothie sachet is a pre-portioned, ready-mixed pack of whole pieces of quick-frozen fruit that contains exactly the right quantity of fruit to make one smoothie, when mixed with fruit juice in a blender. Each smoothie sachet contains between three and four different types of IQF fruit or berries or vegetables, that have been carefully mixed according to one of our award-winning smoothie recipes. Our products are sometimes called “frozen fruit sachets”.
Why are our Smoothies different from other smoothies?
- Our products contain NO additives, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, added sugars or colourings.
- Our products are un-pasteurized.
- We never use ice as a filler – our IQF smoothies are made only from 100% pure fruit – and sometimes a touch of 98% fat-free yoghurt.
- Each one of our smoothies provides 2.5 of your 5-a-day recommended portions of fruit.
- The quality of our fruit is guaranteed and we use three or four different types of fruit in every smoothie sachet.
- Our smoothies are never made with cheaper pasteurized fruit pulps – only unpasteurized whole pieces of freshly ripened fruit.
- For retailers we provide an unbeatable Customer Service with flexible, easy ordering and rapid delivery. We have the smoothie solutions you need.
What equipment do I need?
If you run a cafe or bar you will need a commercial blender to mix the quick frozen fruit sachets and some freezer space to store them.
What is the shelf life?
The shelf life of our smoothies is 2 years.
