It's pretty common knowledge that you're going to get the most nutritional bang for your buck from fresh vegetables and fruits, but AsapSCIENCE explores why that's the case, and how true that idea really is.
In a lot of instances, the food you buy at a supermarket isn't at its nutritional peak. This means that between getting picked too early, sitting around the grocery store, and eventually ending up in your stomach, the food loses up to 50 per cent of its nutritional value.
Frozen foods, on the other hand, are picked when they're ripe and then frozen. This locks in the nutrition. When the food isn't in season, frozen fruits and vegetables actually have more nutrients than fresh. That said, if you have access to your own garden or a farmer's market, the fresh foods going to beat frozen every time.
