Think Frozen for Nutritional Content + Health

Posted On: January 8, 2015

A recent University of Georgia study took a closer look at America’s grocery habits and found that in most cases, purchasing frozen fruits and vegetables may be the key to delivering the vitamins and minerals that families need.

Partnering with the The Frozen Food Foundation, a not-for-profit dedicated to scientific food studies and research, the study focused on comparing the nutrient content of popular frozen and fresh fruits and vegetables.

What did the researchers find? The study revealed that the nutritional value of frozen fruits and vegetables were generally equal to the fresh counterparts. The leader of the study, Ronald Pegg, stated  that “given the fact that many Americans only buy produce on a weekly or biweekly basis, frozen produce is a convenient and effective way for consumers to get enough of the nutrients and vitamins available in fruits and vegetables.”

Purchasing frozen fruits and vegetables are an excellent and convenient way of adding more nutrient dense foods to your diet. Beetnik’s frozen fruits and vegetables, picked and frozen at their peak ripeness, ensure that the nutrients are locked in at the point of freezing. “Freezing is nature’s pause button,” Pegg said. “It helps maintain the nutritional value of fresh vegetables, even during storage.”
