Do fresh vegetables contain more nutrients than frozen vegetables?

The natural preservation method of freezing eliminates the need for additional preservatives. Freezing “locks in” vitamins and minerals, but leaves fats, proteins, and carbs unchanged. Conversely, fresh produce that has not been frozen will gradually lose its vitamins as it is stored. While the mineral content of frozen fruit and vegetables is mostly unchanged from fresh foods, the vitamin content is typically comparable to that of fresh fruit and vegetables (and in some cases, better retained). Importantly, frozen fruits and vegetables are included in your recommended “5-a-day” intake!

Why is frozen veg so convenient?

Although frozen goods are often thought of as a “fallback,” they are actually a true substitute for “fresh.” In terms of nutrition, frozen vegetables are just as good as fresh, and they come with a ton of other benefits! It’s advised to include a lot of fruit and vegetables in your family’s daily diet if you want to give them a healthy, balanced diet. Fruits and vegetables are available to everyone, everywhere, and every day when they are frozen.

Delicious Frozen Vegetables: We adore all of the frozen Birds Eye veggies. We love the riced cauliflower the best because there are so many problems. Make rice with it, or mash it to make a potato substitute. Even though the vegetables have been frozen for a few weeks, they still taste fresh. We will continue to eat this brand.
