Hi,

If a compliant fruit, e.g. cherries, are frozen, is it still safe to eat them? There's reports doing the rounds at the moment about frozen fruit and cancer.

Cheers.

Maybe this wild-eyed study is where it came from. And these same people would declare there isn't anything "scientific" about Dr. D.'s work. Grrrr! Has anyone ever seen an "health editor" at a newspaper that even had getting in out of the rain sense? If anyone is worried about eating something frozen, take a turmeric capsule or simply season something with it.

Frozen fruits and veggies lose a bit of nutrition in the freezing process.  HOWEVER, they are frozen when much, much fresher than the "fresh" things you buy at a regular store, so in actuality the frozen products can be much healthier.

That's all you need to know.  Quit reading the phony junk reports out there.

Always ascertain and question the motive of the writer of such reports and what they might be promoting or reason for the debunking?!

Thanks for the replies. I was skeptical about the report, but asked since my Mum wanted me to pop on the forum and see what others had to say. I've generally a supporter of frozen produce, especially since an old nutritionist friend extolled the virtues of them several years ago.

Quoted Text
There was a surprise finding – people who ate canned or frozen fruit actually had a higher risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.

The authors, Dr Oyinlola Oyebode and colleagues from the department of epidemiology and public health at UCL, said they were unsure how to interpret the findings on canned or frozen fruit . It could be that people eating canned fruit may not live in areas where there is fresh fruit in the shops, which could indicate a poorer diet.

Alternatively, they could be people who are already in ill-health or they could lead hectic lifestyles. There is also another possibility: frozen and tinned fruit were grouped together in the questions, but while frozen fruit is considered to be nutritionally the same as fresh, tinned fruit is stored in syrup containing extra sugar. More work needs to be done to see whether sweetened, tinned fruit is in fact the issue, the researchers say.

The study didn't even separate out frozen fruit from canned fruit?

Canned fruit is cooked as part of the canning process, while most frozen fruits are simply frozen. Some are blanched, but not all.

Canned fruit often has added sugar, corn syrup, and/or artificial coloring.

Canned fruit may pick up chemicals from the cans. This is less likely with frozen fruit because the fruit is already frozen when it touches the plastic bag. If it's blanched before freezing, that will be done in a stainless-steel vat, not the packaging itself.

In short, frozen and canned fruits are so dissimilar that I would never have considered lumping them together if I was designing a dietary survey. This study is completely worthless.

It really makes you wonder about how food is percieved from a laboratory perspective.

Some of them seem to see it as totally foreign to human consumption!
