  • IQF milled lemongrass

Lemongrass is a plant belonging to the grass family and is closely related to bamboo and wheat plants. Lemongrass originates in Thailand and is central to Asian cuisine but also works well in Wester dishes too. Lemongrass has a sweet lemon-like flavour and is commonly used in dishes such as stir-fry’s, sauces, and soups.

IQF lemongrass has the same great taste, texture, health benefits, and nutrients as fresh lemongrass but has a much longer shelf life, which maximises its convenience.

Process

Uren’s IQF lemongrass is sourced from our BRC accredited suppliers in Thailand and is grown to industry standards.

Lemongrass is usually harvested around late winter to early spring. When the lemongrass has been harvested it is taken back to the factory to be cleaned, quality checked, and cut to size. The lemongrass is then individually quick frozen at incredibly low temperatures to prevent the formation of ice crystals, lock in freshness, and ensure a free-flowing product.

Shelf Life: 24 months from production

Packaging: 10kg carton

Minimum order quantity: 1 pallet
