View Full Version : Frozen vs fresh foods

Obviously I think its better to fry fresh organic produce (or even better grow it), but for the times its not possible, which veg/fruit loses the least nutrition in frozen form in the supermarket?
e.g. frozen peas are really convenient, and so is broccoli.

Well, this is a raw food forum so we don't offer advce on frying foods. Most frozen vegetables are blanched before being frozen and are not raw. Fruits on the other hand are usually frozen raw ( eg blueberries, strawberries, raspberries). I use frozen fruits often for smoothies.

Am wondering if "fry" was just a Freudian slip? Did you mean to say "buy"?

When frozen foods are made, they snap freeze product after blanching and this preserves the vitamins, so you don't get any loss..

Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cherries and peaches that are grown here in NJ are picked at their peek ripeness then frozen within a day (usually 20-24 hrs.). Can't get any better than that unless you popped them directly in your mouth from the bush/tree!!!!
When purchasing these same berries from the market/superstore, the berries are picked a few days before their peek ripeness, sorted, packed, shipped, stored, put on the shelves......it could end up being 2 weeks before you put them in your mouth.
The best way to eat fruit is more on the ripe/almost rotten side. That is where the true nutrition is. Before ripeness (or green) berries or even bananas, are not good for the digestion, period.
