The View: Frozen Food Nutrients
Lempert said that frozen foods are on the rise, due to the convenience. He added that 44% of meals in these modern times are eaten by yourself. Foods are now often quick frozen, preserving the most nutrients possible.
The View: Frozen Foods Convenience
“Fruits and vegetables are actually picked at the peak of freshness and then flash frozen,” he said. That means frozen is a great way to get produce that might be out of season.
Fresh packages of fish might say “previously frozen,” so check the label and you could save big by buying frozen.
