Frozen Fruits consist of high levels of vital vitamins and potentially useful antioxidants as compared to the fresh ones, and also help in protecting against the heart diseases. This is only because freezing sustains the products for prolonged periods without any additives and prevents any type of microbial growth that causes food spoilage.
Frozen Fruits are made from a procedure in which the eatables are primarily blanched, boiled, and then frozen considerably. They are conserved at a temperature usually below -9.5°C, at which all moisture is in the solid condition. This averts the advance of microorganisms, decelerates decomposition and in turn aids in keeping fruits fresh for a prolonged period of time.
