Polish National Food and Nutrition Institute recommends eating four portions of vegetables and three portions of fruits a day. Frozen products make meal preparation easier and faster, because they are selected, cleaned and peeled.

On the contrary, fresh products need to be cleaned and peeled. These time-consuming activities cause loss of weight. In result the relative price of frozen food is lower.

According to the research, fruits and vegetables frozen just after being harvested preserve similar amount of vitamins and minerals to the fresh products.

The loss of nutritive value due to long-lasting transport to shops or storage place is usually higher than in case of freezing products just after harvesting. Freezing is the best way of food storage without using preservatives. Frozen fruits and vegetables keep 80% of vitamin C and 70-95% of vitamin A present in their fresh equivalents. Similarly, neither aroma nor taste are changed.

Frozen vegetables and fruits are sources of valuable vitamins, especially vitamins A, B1, B2, K, E, C and B-carotene.

They also contain high volume of folic acid and minerals, such as potassium, calcium, sodium and magnesium. These elements are important building material for tissues and bones. They are part of insulin and hemoglobin, which is responsible for oxygen transport. Fruits and vegetables also contain dietary fiber, which regulates digestion preventing constipations and reducing the concentration of glucose and cholesterol in blood.
