Nutrition Q & A

What's Best? Fresh, Frozen or Canned Vegetables?

Fresh may seem best, but your wallet may say otherwise.

Frozen and canned vegetables are picked and packaged at peak ripeness, whereas fresh vegetables may spoil soon after purchase. When vegetables are in season, buy fresh. Prices tend to be lower because of higher quantities available. Canned vegetables may be higher in sodium, and rinsing them in a food strainer can reduce sodium content by 50%.
