How Fresh is Frozen?

Frozen Food For Freshness

Frozen meals are considered to have a lot of added salt and sugars, making them an unfavourable meal option. However, it's time we bust this myth. By preparing and storing frozen foods correctly, the nutritious benefits in them are generally higher than in refrigerated meals. 

  1. Vitamins and minerals content 

Frozen meals typically have higher content of vitamins and minerals. Even though fresh food is stored in the fridge, fruits and vegetables lose their vitamin and mineral content overtime. The freezing process, however, preserves the nutritious elements without the use of added preservatives. When defrosted the food includes all the vitamins and minerals inside the dish similarly to a freshly cooked meal.   


  1. Macronutrients content

The macronutrients content in frozen dishes is not impacted by the freezing process. In such a way the quality of the protein, fats and carbs stays the same. As it is essential for a healthier diet to include a suitable amount of the three macronutrients, frozen food is a good alternative to keep in the fridge as a standby meal option. 


  1. Quality and Taste 

There is no effect on quality or taste in frozen meals. Compared to canned foods, frozen meals do not require any additional preservatives. There is no additionally added salt or sugars as the freezing process keeps the food fresh. The texture of defrosted food stays the same as in recently cooked dishes. In such a way frozen foods are a good alternative to easily store food in a safe way without compromising on the quality. 


  1. Time-saving and Convenient 

Frozen foods are a great time-saving meal option. With an extended lifespan, frozen meals are a good alternative to have in your freezer to enjoy at your convenient time and still receive all nutritional benefits.
