There is so much choice nowadays when you look at buying frozen fruit. I used to stand looking at the shelves thinking what’s the difference. Then I realised that I need to look into this more.
The biggest thing to consider is which country is the fruit/vegetable from? You will find products from Mexico, Chile, Peru etc.
1) The reason you need to know this is to look at
- what pesticides are typically used in that country
- do they pay their workers a decent wage
2) Are the fruits natural or do they have added sugar?
Frozen strawberries in syrup can have as much as 11 times the sugar as natural ones
