Quick-frozen fruits and veggies—like berries, peas, and spinach—are nutritionally equal to fresh and may be better than many produce items that travel far in winter, losing nutrients along the way.

 Yup! Most of them are flash frozen so all the nutrients are locked and they are not allowed to thaw and refreeze on the way.
