Myth Or Fact: Are Fresh Products More Nutritious Than Frozen Products?

As the winter approaches, fresh fruits and vegetable become scarce and this is why many people choose to freeze them and use them later on. However, we have all asked ourselves at least once: which one is more nutritious, the fresh or the frozen dishes? As research suggests, there is little to no difference in terms of nutrients between fresh and frozen dishes. The secret lies in the preparation process, as the cooking method can dramatically affect the natural properties of fruits. In essence, fresh and frozen products have relatively the same amount of healthy nutrients, it all comes down to how you cook them. At the same time, it is not impossible for fresh fruits to contain even less nutrients given the fact that when shipped to the fresh produce aisles of the largest supermarkets, they are usually picked before they are ripe. This way, they do not have enough time to develop a full spectrum of minerals and vitamins, therefore they will never have their natural nutritive value. This, coupled with prolonged exposure to heat and light can further degrade the nutrients and vitamins, especially thiamin.

The conclusion is that in-season fruits and vegetables should be consumed fresh, while off-season foods can be consumed frozen. This is the thumb rule if you want to benefit from the highest concentration of nutrients.
