Can frozen food be better than fresh? (Video)

The animators at ASAP Science explain why frozen fruits and vegetables may actually have some advantages over fresh ones. (ASAP Science)

 

Indeed, it can, as the folks here at ASAP Science explain in this video. If your fresh fruits and vegetables aren't local and lose some of their  nutritional value on the long trip to your table, you may be better off with frozen. It's at least worth making the comparison.
