 Frozen Vegetables Have Higher Nutrition Content Than Fresh Ones
Frozen vegetables can often contain more nutrients than fresh ones, a new report has said.

Scientists from the Institute of Food Research claimed that produce which is frozen soon after being picked with have more nutrients sealed in, reports The Telegraph.

The research was carried out by the Institute on behalf of Birds Eye, the frozen food manufacturer.

Nutritionist Dr Sarah Schenker said: "The nutritional content of fresh vegetables begins to deteriorate from the minute they are picked. This means that by the time they end up on our plate, although we may think we're reaping the vegetable's full nutritional benefits, this is often not the case."
