A couple alternatives to fresh vegetables are canned and frozen veggies, but which one is the better choice?
Canned veggies are convenient and make it possible to enjoy off season veggies. The canning process does not change the fiber content allowing canned veggies to have the same content as fresh and frozen veggies. Not a lot of vitamins are lost in canning process which makes it a good alternative to fresh veggies. Frozen veggies are packed with vitamins and nutrients due to the flash freezing process. Vegetables are picked at their prime, then blanched and finally flash frozen. When the veggies are frozen fast, not much is lost in terms of the nutrients. Although fresh veggies are always the best source of vitamins and nutrients, frozen veggies win the battle for the next best alternative.
