Frozen vegetables are less nutritious than fresh ones

Fact

Freshly picked vegetables do have more vitamins and minerals, but unless you're right there on the farm waiting to eat them immediately, you're unlikely to get all those nutrients. Nutrient levels drop during shipping and storage. They lose even more vitamins as they sit in the fridge. Meanwhile, frozen vegetables are picked ripe and are immediately frozen with no downtime to allow any loss of nutrients, so they keep most of their nutritional value
