FRESH VS FROZEN

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - BODY -

Who doesn’t love the con­ve­nience of frozen veg­gies ev­ery once in a while? They’re quick, they last for­ever and they re­quire zero prep – but it’s of­ten been said that, when it comes to veg­eta­bles, the fresher the bet­ter. Well, that’s not nec­es­sar­ily true. New stud­ies sug­gest that veg­eta­bles in the freezer aisle have just as many nu­tri­ents (if not more) as their fresh coun­ter­parts. Fresh pro­duce pro­duces en­zymes that cause a loss in colour and flavour just af­ter har­vest – but freez­ing stops the process in its tracks.
