The findings do not support the commonly-held belief that fresh vegetables are better for you than frozen vegetables.
New research: frozen vegetables fresher than fresh
It conducted a multi-year study investigating the nutritional value of frozen vegetables and fruits and the fresh ones. The study compared the nutritional value of fresh, fresh-stored (purchased fresh and stored in the refrigerator for five days) and frozen produce. It revealed that the nutritional value of frozen fruits and vegetables is comparable or even better than fresh produce. Moreover, frozen stored fruits and vegetables consistently outperformed the fresh stored fruits and vegetables.
Fresh produce loses nutritional value during the time it takes to arrive on the consumer’s plate. It starts to degrade as soon as the foods are picked. Freezing shortly after harvest pauses crops at the peak of freshness, preserving nutrients and good taste.
