#5 Myth about food: Fresh vegetables are better than frozen vegetables.

Fact: Every recipe and every cooking show will ask you to use fresh ingredients. This is a bouncer, according to studies by UK-based Institute of Food Research. The insitute says frozen foods are as nutritious, if not more, than fresh produce. Sounds crazy?

The argument is that food loses an average of 45 percent nutrition value by the time it reaches your dinner table. From the time it is harvested, transported and distributed to different vendors it takes a minimum two weeks before you eat it. Frozen vegetables do not lose nutrients as they are preserved in low temperatures and retain value.

However, Indian grocery markets are often located close to the supply areas. This might make fresh produce more viable for us. Even so, several studies suggest that frozen or not, vegetables will offer similar benefits. (Via)
