Frozen Food Doesn't Mean Unhealthy Food
“Frozen vegetables generally equalled or outperformed fresh vegetables for nutrient concentration.”
We love working with fresh food, but there's a common misconception that frozen food and frozen meals can't be as nutritious.
In fact, with modern methods of freezing such as snap freezing, frozen foods can often have higher nutritional value and other benefits over alternatives such as produce from the grocery store and refrigerated meals.
Here we look at some of the advantages of frozen food and snap freezing in particular.
Healthy Benefits of Snap Frozen Foods
Freezing preserves the nutrients and vitamins in food, so you will often find nutrient levels such as vitamin C remain higher in frozen foods compared to fresh. This is because some nutrients in fresh produce and refrigerated meals are diminished by exposure to light, air and temperature as they move through the chain from producers, to wholesalers, to retailers, and ultimately to you.
