frozen

im confused now,i always thought that fresh veg was the best thing for you,but now i read that it is better to cook frozen veg as it retains more of its vitamins etc,please someone tell me what is best?

    apparently if the fresh veg come from abroad it is no longer fresh as it has travelled to get here.but if it is frozen and still from abroad it retains its nutrients,this is confusing

    umm ... not sure about that.

    you can be sure to get decent veg if you buy in season and where possible locally produced.

    That is correct, 95% of the fruit and veg sold in this country is imported therefore it's travelled a long way on a plane and between distribution depots and isn't really fresh.

    Foods are frozen within a few hours so it's a better option for importated stuff.

    Best options are growing your own or going to a farm shop/farmers market where stuff will actually be fresh - truly fresh fruit and veg tastes miles better.
