I found this at helpwithcooking.com: "Fruits and vegetables actually begin to lose valuable vitamins and minerals soon after picking, especially if they are stored at room temperature or above. However, if they are frozen within a few hours after harvesting, this will not happen."
So it sounds like freezing them is a very good idea. Plus, if you don't freeze them, you'll definitely lose nutritional value when you have to throw them out!
I tend to buy fresh fruits and vegetables on a weekly basis and after a thorough washing I freeze much of it for a later date for juicing. Do these fruits and veggies lose any nutritional value from freezing? If so, how much? Any details and pointers are appreciated.
I actually learned this, this week. They do not loose nutrients. They have more nutrients than the fresh fruits and veggies at the grocery store. Because the ones that have been frozen were frozen very soon after they had been picked. Therefore, more nutrients. Fresh foods that have been sitting out in the store have been been picked many days previously which they have lost nutrients.
