Fresh fruits and vegetables may taste better than the frozen or canned variety as part of a weight loss regime aimed at better management of PCOS symptoms. But did you know it’s possible to get more nutrients from the latter?
That’s because the “fresh” produce you just bought at a supermarket may be a lot older than you think after being harvested, sorted, packed and then shipped across the country. Fluctuations in light and temperature rob fruits and vegetables of important nutrients such as vitamin C and folate.
Frozen and canned fruits and vegetables often have these nutrient locked in. But the downside is that manufacturers sometimes add salt, sugar and fat.
So scrutinize the labels of frozen and canned food to avoid products that contain these additives.
