Studies show frozen fruits and vegetables often have MORE nutrients than fresh. Why? Ripe produce contains more nutrients than unripe.
Frozen produce is allowed to ripen on the vine before they are picked and frozen.
Fresh produce on the other hand, is often picked early, because it usually has to travel long distances before it gets to you local store. It may look ripe by the time you buy it, but the only fruit that can actually ripen OFF the vine are bananas. Buying local produce is an excellent option for fresh.
All the best to your health!
