Frozen produce has been proven to have the same, if not more, nutritional value than your conventional super market produce. However, just like fresh produce, frozen produce also has many 'X' factors in determining nutritional value. Is the produce frozen immediately after being picked? What processing was needed before freezing, etc? In all cases, it’s always best to do your research.
When it comes down to it, knowing where your fresh or frozen produce comes from is the most important factor of them all. Produce from local farms or grown in your backyard will be high in nutrition. Produce frozen at peak ripeness with minimal processing will also be high in nutrition. It's about doing a little research and choosing which is best for you and your family.
Most of the time this information isn't easy to find... That’s why here, at Pitaya Plus, we're more than happy to share how we source our Pitaya. Our Pitaya / Dragon Fruit is organically grown and picked at peak ripeness for maximum nutritional value. We freeze our Pitaya in smoothie packs immediately right after the pulp is extracted from the Pitaya shell. Our processing is so minimal and simple you can even grow your own Pitaya from our smoothie packs.
