Myth: Frozen fruit isn’t as healthy as the fresh stuff
You might think that choosing fresh fruits and veggies from your local market is the only way to go. However, the foods you find in the produce section have often had a long journey from the moment they were packed in crates. From the time it’s picked to the time it finally lands on your kitchen counter, your produce has actually lost some of its nutrients.
By contrast, food processors flash-freeze their fresh-picked produce, which preserves much of its vitamin and mineral content. A University of Illinois study found, for instance, that frozen beans retained twice as much vitamin C as fresh beans purchased in a grocery store.
