When it comes to vegetables, there is definitely a hierarchy. Though the better and fresher the vegetable is, the pricier it gets, which is a privilege some people don’t get to have. However, just because you can’t buy fresh vegetables doesn’t mean you should go for canned. There are many reasons for this, but if you have the option to get your vegetables frozen, always go for that!
Frozen vegetables are still pretty fresh since they get frozen upon ripeness. The freezing process doesn’t involve any weird chemicals, additives, or stabilizers, unlike in canned vegetables, so you know you’re just getting the exact veggies you need.
Salt and Sugar
Often you will find in a can of vegetables that there are unusual sugar or salt contents since there should be neither of each. If there is naturally occurring sugar in the vegetable, that’s fine, but it shouldn’t be listed as an extra ingredient on the label. Canned vegetables do this a lot which means that you’re getting more than you bargained for and your vegetables won’t be as pure.
Canned foods do last longer than frozen, but once it’s opened, canned foods will go bad quicker than frozen. So if you’re looking at how long an opened container will last, frozen always wins.
