Frozen mixed fruit

Any one know if this retains its nutrition, saw it in tesco and its just damned cheap for the berries, wouldnt mind having it every now and again in place of my other fruit, in a similar quantity. as long as it retains its nutrition.

thanks

    I add Tesco frozen blueberries to my morning shake every day. Also I add it into porridge/cereal (just leave it defrost in the fridge overnight). Much cheaper than the fresh ones too.

    Tescos Frozen Raspberries have been on offer for an age now, I'm well stocked up and add a good load to my porridge every night ready for the morning, damn they're good

    They are fine.

    Some fruit and veg can lose nutrients during transportation and freezing though, so try and get decent stuff.

    Freezing is less damaging to fruit than cooking, so yes, great. I buy the 5kg (?!) sacks of mixed berries from Costco - last fecking ages, and very cheap.

    Would it not lose less nutrients if frozen during transit, compared with transit of fresh fruit!

    I would have thought (could be wrong) when it's frozen it's done quickly so that all the nutritional content is preserved, where as fresh fruit picked and shipped in chilled containers would loose the goodness quicker.

    Think he may have meant decent local stuff.

    I can't remember hearing of freezing destroying enzymes, etc, the same as heat does, but it may incur a small amount of detriment. If the fruit was frozen only after it had been shipped across a few continents (saves on refrigerated shipping), then more degradation will have occured. Not sure if the supply chain is as well set up as frozen veg??
