The Federal Food and Drug Administration has already announced that there is virtually no difference in nutritional content between fresh and frozen vegetables. For most brands, the vegetables are picked fresh, cleaned and cooked very slightly before they are placed in an airtight package and frozen. Many people insist that frozen vegetables have more of the healthy nutrients than their fresh counterparts because they are usually picked at their prime ripening time and frozen immediately. Sprays and time on a truck, coupled with handling and sitting under ultra-violet lights on the store shelves can actually reduce the vitamins you get from fresh produce.
