Frozen foods nutrients

As soon as produce is harvested, it's a nutritional race against time.

Frozen produce has one problem: before it's frozen, it's blanched - heating food up for a few minutes at high temperatures to inactivate enzymes that degrade texture and color. Blanching also reduces nutrient content.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Tinned food uses a more intense heat treatment that decreases the nutrients more than frozen food. But nutrients in different kinds of produce degrade at different rates.

Food is most nutritious at the point of harvest. After that, fresh produce starts degrading.

Refrigeration slows down the process of nutrition degradation. The nutritional loss varies from product to product.
