Fruits and vegetables are often frozen to preserve their nutritional content and prolong their shelf life. The following two reports take a closer look at the frozen fruits market and frozen vegetables market.
Fruits and vegetables typically have a short shelf life. Peas, for instance, are only good for a few days, even when stored in a refrigerator.
Strawberries have a similar shelf life of one to day days at room temperature or five to seven days when refrigerated. As a result, many consumers and culinary business owners prefer purchasing frozen fruits and vegetables.
Some people assume that frozen fruits and vegetables have a lower nutritional content than their fresh counterparts, but this isn't necessarily true. On the contrary, they often contain a higher level of nutrients because they are harvested and frozen at just the right time.
Farmers harvest the fruits and vegetables when they are the ripest, after which they flash freeze them to "lock in" their vitamins and minerals. Flash freezing, unlike traditional freezing techniques, involves rapidly freezing the fruit or vegetable so that it doesn't develop ice crystals.
Another benefit of freezing fruits and vegetables is the ability to transport them long distances. With fresh fruits and vegetables -- which are often refrigerated -- spoilage may quickly occur when the items are being shipped or otherwise transported.
And whenever an item spoils, the company can no longer sell it. Therefore, many food companies are investing in frozen fruits and vegetables to achieve a higher return on investment (ROI).
