Edamame beans, otherwise known as soya beans, originate in China and are often served boiled or steamed with salt or other condiments, particularly alongside sushi. They have been cultivated in Asia for centuries and are often used as a healthier, more cost-effective alternative to meat. Classed as a super-food, edamame beans contain almost the same nutritional value and health benefits as meat, are high in vitamin C and plant-based protein, making them the most popular protein source for vegetarians and vegans.

IQF edamame beans have the same nutritional profile, delicious taste, texture, and bright green colour as fresh edamame beans but with the convenience and longer shelf life of a frozen product.

Process:

Uren’s IQF edamame beans are sourced from our expert, accredited growers in China, and are grown to industry standards. The edamame beans are ready for harvest when the pods are bright green, plump, and around 2-3 inches long. Farmers cut the pods from the plant and quickly take them to the factory to be processed. They are washed, thoroughly inspected for defects, and blanched. The edamame beans are then rapidly frozen at extremely low temperatures to ensure maximum freshness and a free-flowing product.

IQF edamame beans application

Our IQF Cauliflower can be used in a wide variety of manufacturing industries to create a range of different products. These include but are not limited to:

Ready meals

IQF edamame beans can be used in the production of both fresh and frozen ready meals in dishes such as stir-fry, stew, curry, burritos, chilli, noodle dishes, and much more.

  • Pre-made salads and snack boxes.
  • Health food products
  • IQF edamame can be packaged and sold as a pre-made side dish or appetiser, as edamame beans are often eaten alone as a snack, side dish, or starter.
  • Soups, broths, and sauces.
  • Vegetarian and vegan meals

Edamame beans are an excellent source of plant-based protein and contain almost the same nutritional value and health benefits as meat. They are therefore a great, healthier, and more cost-effective alternative to meat in a number of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Edamame beans are often used to make meat substitute products such as vegetarian and vegan burgers, sausages, steak, and mince.

Health foods

edamame beans are rich in many essential nutrients and vitamins. They are a brilliant source of protein, dietary fibre, folate, and antioxidants, are naturally low in carbohydrates, low calorie, and have several health benefits. They are therefore a popular addition to many healthy foods, low calorie and weight loss products.
