Frozen vegetables 'more nutritious than fresh produce'

Frozen food can be even more nutritious than supposedly fresh produce in a supermarket, a new study has found.

Most of the fruit and veg found in the freezer, things like peas, are frozen very soon after harvest, so preserving the levels of vitamins and minerals. However, the long delays in getting fresh food from the field to the store often leads to a reduction in the level of beneficial compounds. In some cases fruit and vegetables sold as fresh will have been held in warehouses for months on end.
