Product Description


Sweet corn (Zea mays convar. saccharata var. rugosa; also called sugar corn and pole corn) is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel. Unlike field corn varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and mature (dent stage), sweet corn is picked when immature (milk stage) and prepared and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain. Since the process of maturation involves converting sugar to starch, sweet corn stores poorly and must be eaten fresh, canned, or frozen, before the kernels become tough and starchy.

Emborg fresh frozen vegetables have since the launch in the 1980s been preferred by consumers due to their premium quality. In order to ensure the best quality, the vegetables are quick frozen, which is a freezing method at extremely low temperatures enabling the freezing time to take only a few minutes. The harvest methods differs depending on the characteristics of the vegetables. Coles like broccoli, cauliflowers and Brussels sprout are handpicked on the field by the local farmer whereas others are professionally harvested. The crops are frequently quality controlled in regards to seeding, crop treatment and harvest time.
