Preserving Food: Freezing Vegetables

Freezing Vegetables 

According to the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service, freezing is an excellent way to preserve fresh vegetables at home. It does not sterilize food; the extreme cold simply slows the growth of microorganisms and changes that affect the quality or cause spoilage in food. Check out their guide for all tips and tricks to correctly freezing food!

Canned Foods

  • The USDA FoodData Central database allows users to review the nutrition value of foods.

  • Users can compare typical nutrition values between raw, canned, or frozen fruits and vegetables.

  • Review labels for added salt (sodium) or sugars (fructose)
