Fresh versus frozen.

Fresh Versus Frozen

You may sometimes wonder: “Can frozen vegetables really be full of nutrients?” Scientific studies have shown that certain nutrients in frozen vegetables are “locked-in” and maintained following the freezing process. When the “hold time” between harvesting and freezing is minimized, nutrients are captured and quality is kept as nature intended. At Nature’s Garden, we have the FLASH FREEZE™ process that does just this – It locks in all that natural goodness just for you.

Here are some Nature’s Garden facts on frozen veg:

· Raw vegetables have similar nutrients as frozen.

· Nutrients in frozen vegetables are well preserved for extended time (up to 12 months)

· Freezing retains Vitamin C and A.

And some great benefits can be enjoyed because of the FLASH FREEZE™ process, like the following:

Convenience: Another benefit of frozen veggies is convenience. There can be no more excuses of not meeting the adult daily needs of 2-4 cups of vegetables. They are cleaned, cut, and ready to go!

Economical: Frozen vegetables can often be more economical during the winter months, when fresh produce has to be shipped from far distances.

Time-Saving: Getting more time to enjoy life, without sacrificing nutrition…now that’s a fresh idea!

In today’s fast-paced world, getting the good stuff fast is a priority – and it must taste good!  Either way you look at it, Nature’s Garden Frozen Veg and Fries are full of nutrients, convenient to use and is definitely BIG ON TASTE.
