Frozen veg is better than fresh

5th March 2010

A study carried out by the Institute of Food Research for food manufacturer Birds Eye has shown that many frozen vegetables contain more nutrients than the 'fresh' items sold in supermarkets.

The study showed some supermarket vegetables were up to nine days old and were not eaten for days after they had been purchased. The study showed green beans lost up to 45% of their nutrients. Birds Eye said its frozen peas could contain "up to 30% more vitamin C than their fresh equivalents and its green beans contain up to 45% more than fresh."
