Are there benefits to buying fresh berries, freezing them and then eating them?

Q: i love to buy fresh mix berrys and frezz them,and heatthem plain,what is the benefite or negative thank you

A:  Berries are good sources of fiber, vitamin C and other nutrients.  They contain antioxidants which help protect our cells from the harmful effects of free radicals.  It is possible to freeze fresh berries, but we don’t recommend freezing them for longer than 6 months.  See our fruit & vegetable nutrition database for more selection and storage tips as well as the health benefits of fruits and vegetables.
