Is the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables as high per serving as it was say 50 years ago before the soil was depleted of nutrients?

The nutrient value of fruits and vegetables is the same as 50 years ago. The efficiency and effectiveness of storing and preserving fruits and vegetables has greatly improved over the last 50 years. These improvements have helped to keep fruits and vegetables at their highest nutrient potential for longer time periods. Research in agriculture has aided in producing the highest nutrient quality of fruits and vegetables. Therefore, the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables are equal to those 50 years ago. All forms of fruits and vegetables—fresh, frozen, canned, dried, or 100% juice—have tons of nutrients!
