Are Fresh or Frozen Vegetables Healthier?   



Are Fresh or Frozen Vegetables Healthier?

 
While canned vegetables tend to lose a lot of nutrients during the preservation process (notable exceptions include tomatoes and pumpkin), frozen vegetables may be even more healthful than some of the fresh produce sold in supermarkets. Fruits and vegetables chosen for freezing tend to be processed at their peak ripeness, a time when-as a general rule-they are most nutrient-packed.

BOTTOM LINE: When vegetables are in-season, buy them fresh and ripe. "Off-season," frozen vegetables will give you a high concentration of nutrients. Eat them soon after purchase. Steam or microwave rather than boil your produce to minimize the loss of water-soluble vitamins.
