Though frozen foods are now easily available in India, most families tend to avoid them as they feel they lack nutrients. However, that is not true.
Flash Freezing Retains Goodness
The reason frozen food is healthy is because a technique called flash freezing is followed for freezing the food items, that locks in all the product’s goodness.
The frozen produce is picked at the peak of its nutrition and flash frozen, which maintain the flavours and nutrients. Flash freezing suspends microbial and fungal activity in the food.
Safe to Consume
Because microbial and fungal activity in the food is suspended, .as long as the food remains frozen, it is safe to consume. Frozen ready-to-cook food can easily be prepared at home.
The biggest advantage of using frozen food is that they’re convenient to store and to consume. Frozen meals allow people to eat foods that they might not otherwise eat, due to long preparation times. Manufacturers today have refined preparation, storage and reheating techniques to create gourmet-quality meals.
Frozen foods turn out to be much more cost-effective. Depending on the type of food, you can store it for several weeks (and even months) without losing quality.
Frozen food also helps reduce food wastage because you use only what you need (good for your pocket too). You can also eat specialty foods that may be too expensive to obtain fresh otherwise.
