Freezing is the best way to preserve the products, because it naturally keeps their properties intact.
The so-called “fresh” vegetables that we find in the market or in shops were harvested, sorted, transported, and stored, all within at least a day. This time is enough for them to lose at least 45% of their nutritional content.
Edenia vegetables are picked at maturity and it takes only a few hours until they reach the freezing line. No salt or other preservatives is added to them. They just pass through a powerful steam jet, then they are frozen. That is why, for Edenia vegetables, freezing means naturalness. FDA (Food & Drug Administration) confirms since 1998 that frozen vegetables have almost the same amount of vitamins and nutrients like freshly picked vegetables.
The same happens with fish, especially the ocean fish species that come from farther regions and undergo a longer time until they reach the consumer.
To keep it fresh, the freezing of Edenia fish is done even on the same day they it is caught, mostly on the boat. Consequently the fish retains its properties. In addition, the freezing process leads to the quick stop of all microbiological activities that damage the product. The thin layer of ice that covers the fish fillets, called glaze, protects them and maintains their texture.
Besides keeping their freshness and nutrients, the frozen products have many more important benefits: they are available in every season and they require a shorter cooking time, being already prepared for cooking. In addition, you can use the exact amount you need, thus eliminating product waste and saving money.
