In the first step, the raw material passes into a drying chamber in the dehydration phase. This process aims to reduce the water content present in the Increases the vegetables, thus concentrated flavor. allowing to intensify and Improves the texture of enhance the the product. characteristic flavor of each vegetable, as well as maintain the color. Moreover, the reduction of water content prevents, during freezing, the breaking of individual molecules of the vegetables, allowing the ingredient to maintain its structure and a natural look. Finally, during defrosting or heating, the dehydration phase has already reduced the water releasing problem, eliminating the loss of crispness of the pizza, sandwich or baguette.
The second phase is the flavoring of the ingredients. Every single vegetable, previously grilled, roasted or simply natural, is sautĂŠed with olive and sunflower oil, salt, fresh herbs and aromatic plants. Cooking each ingredient separately guarantees, after mixing and reactivation of the mix, each vegetable to maintain its natural aroma. In this phase, therefore, we have enhanced the flavor characteristics of each vegetable, preventing these much desired characteristics not to disperse when mixed and cooked with other vegetables.
The individual cooking method does not blend the flavors = enhancing the original flavor of each vegetable
After the flavoring process, the vegetables pass to the IQF freezing process. This is a cryogenic process which ensures that the individual vegetable ingredient closely maintains the physical and nutritional characteristics typical of the fresh ingredient.

In particular, the need by the restaurant chains to continuously renew the recipes, which inevitably collides with the growing problem of the lack of training by todayâ€™s kitchen staff. It maintains the To answer this need, Genius physical and nutritional packs its mixes in serving-sizes characteristics of a fresh according to the recipe of the product. It facilitates the withdrawal of the product. client. In this way the operator will find a pre-balanced mix, avoiding wastage of raw materials and eliminating errors in preparation of the dishes.
