Free Up Time And Capture Nutrition with Frozen Veggies!
You may be asking, can frozen vegetables really be full of nutrients? Scientific studies show that certain nutrients in frozen vegetables are “locked-in” and maintained following the freezing process. When you minimize the “hold time” between harvesting and freezing you can capture nutrients and quality.
It would be ideal to have a farmer’s market available year round, with fresh picked vegetables direct from the garden. The reality for many Americans is the growing season is brief and the options for fresh local vegetables are limited during the winter and spring seasons.
- Raw vegetables have similar nutrients as frozen
- Nutrients in frozen vegetables are well preserved for extended time (up to 12 months)
- Freezing retains Vitamin C and A
- Convenient. Another benefit of frozen veggies is convenience. There can be no more excuses of not meeting the adult daily needs of 2-4 cups of vegetables. They are cleaned, cut, and ready to go!
- Economical. Frozen vegetables can often be more economical during the winter months, when fresh produce has to be shipped from far distances.
- Time-Saving.Getting more time to enjoy life, without sacrificing nutrition…now that’s a fresh idea!
