Subject: Is there a difference between fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables?
People might wonder of there is a difference between fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables. It was believed previously that frozen fruits and veggies do not have as much nutritional value as their fresh counterparts. It was also believed that during freezing, essential vitamins and minerals depleted. There was an article posted at The Guardian's website that stressed today's newer techniques that involve blanching before flash freezing have greatly improved nutrient retention in frozen fruits and veggies.
- Produce begins to lose essential nutrients as soon as it is harvested, but some studies suggest freezing can preserve produce's nutritional and health value longer.
- A study examining eight kinds of produce compared fresh and frozen and found no difference in nutritional or mineral content, though some had varying levels of vitamins and riboflavin.
- Experts have said that frozen and canned vegetables have been processed when most nutritious, while fresh produce can take days or weeks to be cooked and lose more nutrients.
"However, an article published in The Guardian‘s website stressed that today’s newer techniques involving blanching prior to flash freezing have significantly improved nutrient retention in frozen fruits and vegetables."
