The Benefits of Using Frozen Fruit

A lot of people avoid purchasing frozen fruit because they think it’s not as healthy as fresh fruit. However, this is not the case! Read on to learn about the benefits of frozen fruit in your menu items.

Less Spoilage 

Did you know that we waste about 12 million tons of fruit each year? While fruit gets thrown out for a variety of reasons, a lot of people toss out their fruit because it spoils before they have the chance to eat it. 

Most fresh fruit spoils in about a week. However, frozen fruit can be kept into your freezer for up to a year or more! 

Just As Many Vitamins (Sometimes More) 

Many people steer clear of frozen fruit because they think it’s stripped of vitamins. However, in a lot of cases, frozen fruit has more vitamins than fresh fruit. Frozen fruits are picked at peak ripeness, and because they’re frozen right away, they’re able to retain more nutrients than fresh fruit.

Use Whenever You Wish

When you purchase fresh fruit, you have to figure out ways to use it right away. This is not the case with frozen fruit, as it’ll last through the year. 

Plus, there are all kinds of recipes you can whip up with frozen fruit. 

IQF Food

Frozen fruit is also an IQF food, which means it’s cheaper, more nutritious, and longer-lasting. Plus, frozen fruit is always in season!
