Why Buy Frozen Cranberries?
Buying your fruit frozen has numerous benefits, which is why we are so proud to be able to offer it to you, they include:
1. Less food Waste
This is because you only use what you need, when you need it, and don’t have to worry about your fruit going off quicker than you are ready to use it.
You can enjoy all the seasonal fruits you love throughout the year without having to compromise on quality and flavour.
3. Better Flavour
Freezing fruit from fresh means all the nutrition that was present at the time of picking is locked in and preserved - providing you with amazing, fresh-tasting fruit.
4. Healthy & Nutritious
Our fruit is frozen fresh and nothing is added nor taken away, therefore, when it is defrosted, it is still as healthy and nutritious as the day it was picked and frozen!
5. No Preservatives
By using a natural method of preservation like freezing, no artificial preservatives are used or required in order to achieve an extended shelf life.
At this time of year, one of our favourite fruits to cook with are cranberries. A superfood, rich in healthy vitamins and plant compounds, this tart fruit is perfect for seasonal cooking and stands out in both sweet and savoury recipes.
Cranberries are made up of nearly 90% water and are high in fibre, although cranberry juice has almost no fibre, so to get the most benefits we’d suggest adding them frozen to your cooking where you can.
