What's gold, native to the Americas, and adds an unmistakable flavor and texture to foods? Corn. 


This golden grain has been a major food ingredient for centuries. What makes it even more tasty? Fire-roasting, of course! Manufacturers can save time with IQF Roasted Corn, conventional and organic, from Van Drunen Farms (VDF).

Corn certainly is a staple in many cuisines, especially in North, Central, and South American foods. From zesty salsas to creamy corn chowder, corn plays a major part in adding flavor, texture, and color to foods that consumers love. VDF conveniently offers IQF Roasted Corn, which is more easily handled and stored than raw corn, and lends a distinct, smoky flavor to foods.

The IQF Roasted Corn process is achieved by first roasting the product over a live flame, then spreading fire-roasted corn kernels in a single layer on a slow moving conveyer belt through sub-zero air. This process allows for fresh flavor, piece identity, convenience, and easy handling. IQF Roasted Corn also is unique and extremely versatile.

Applications for this product include: salads, salsas, soups, chili, casseroles, risotto dishes, chunky-style cornbread, bean dishes, and many more. IQF Roasted Corn is ideal for adding to retail frozen meals and side dishes.
