It may seems obvious that fresh fruits and vegetables are better than frozen, but that isn’t always the case, explains Asap SCIENCE.

As most ‘fresh’ produce we enjoy at the supermarket is harvested across the world far before it was ripe, it never reaches its full nutritional potential from the get-go. Worse, it loses even more as it travels the world, and sits on the stores shelves for what could be weeks. 

Frozen on the other hand is picked at peak nutrition and is frozen immediately. 

Of course, fresh is usually better in the summer when the produce is more likely to be just picked by a local farm.
