March Is Frozen Food Month
March is National Frozen Food Month. People often wonder if frozen and canned vegetables are similar in nutritional value to fresh produce. The answer is yes as frozen vegetables are just as nutritious as fresh and in some cases are more nutritious.
According to the International Food Information Council, the nutritional value of frozen vegetables is nearly the same to fresh. This is due to the fact that frozen vegetables are frozen within hours of being harvested. This preserves nutritional value.
