We source meat from only the best brands and free range farms that meet our quality standards and allow their animals to live in conditions we approve of.
2: How fresh is MeatRoot's meat?
We at MeatRoot operate only against orders. We do not store anything frozen as far as fresh supply is concerned. Once we close our orders we start to process all the orders in a very custom fashion. Every pack is custom handled to incorporate all the instructions shared at the time of placing order. We do not encourage default packs as dimensions of pieces differs from preparation to preparation. For example, salad requires smaller cubes whereas biryani required bigger pieces. And all this happens just couple of hours before the delivery. Post processing packet gets stored at 4 degree celsius just to chill those packs. Temprature at this stage is carefully maintained ensuring meat texture stays unaffected and firm.

4: Is frozen meat healthy?
Freezing is the best method of extending the useful shelf life of meat. It preserves freshness, taste, nutritional value and quality. The freezing process itself does not destroy nutrients and there is little change in nutrient value during freezer storage. Small amounts of nutrients (salts, peptides, amino acids, and watersoluble vitamins) may be lost as drip when the meat is thawed. The freshness of frozen meat can be maintained for up to 6 months under appropriate storage conditions while unrefrigerated meat can go stale and spoil within a day.
5: What is IQF?
Individual Quick Frozen. It is the technique in which seafoods are frozen as individual pieces by direct CONTACT with nitrogen vapours and liquid nitrogen spray. This is the only process whereby, virtually all the properties of most of the parent foodstuffs can be preserved.IQF is a preferred method over usual block freezing because consumers can use only as much of the product as they need, eliminating the need to defrost the whole box.
6: How is frozen fish through IQF technique better than fresh fish?
So called fresh fish actually takes minimum 2-3 days to reach your kitchen. During the transit period, it is preserved using methods like block freezing, dry ice, etc. causing cellular damage and moisture loss. Where in IQF, the catch is quickly cleaned, spread out (to prevent clumping) and frozen by passing through a sophisticated machine. The rapid freezing helps to preserve the texture and moisture of the product saving a dry, chewy texture when thawed.
