The modern food industry has trained us to believe that meals and snacks that are found in the frozen section of the grocery store are either unhealthy or not fresh. However, the delicious fruit provided by local farmers at Seal the Seasons proves that this is not always the case. Research shows that our method of flash-freezing our produce can lock in multiple nutritional benefits, along with providing an overall better taste. Here are three reasons why “frozen is fresher”, according to science!
First off, there is a higher level of vitamins and antioxidants found within our fruits that can help promote a well-rounded diet and prevent harmful diseases like cancer. How does this happen? Well, because there is a minimal lag time between our fruit being picked and frozen, it doesn’t get warm. This lack of heat causes immune system boosters like vitamin C to get locked into the produce, causing it to be even healthier than buying it fresh.
Second, there are supportive properties that are derived from frozen fruits. Studies have shown the improved functioning of the brain, eyes and skin from the compounds of polyphenols, anthocyanin, lutein and beta-carotene, which are all found within the produce when it is immediately put into the freezer.
Finally, frozen fruit has been proven to be better tasting and more aesthetically appealing. Grocery stores will oftentimes spray their produce sections with water, as to increase vibrancy. Meanwhile, fruit found within the frozen aisle is naturally colorful and maintains the same juiciness that it had when it was originally harvested.
