Happy National Canned Food Month!
Here’s a look at the facts from Cans Get You Cooking:
Fruits and vegetables are harvested at their peak of ripeness and canned within hours, making the can one of the best ways to lock in nutrients and get food from it’s source to your family’s table.
Like the home canning process, canning seals in foods’ nutrition, freshness and flavor making healthy, homemade meals a reality more often.
According to a University of California, Davis study, many canned fruits and vegetables are on par, nutritionally, with fresh/ frozen varieties and in some cases, even better!
Most recipes are designed around canned food sizes, eliminating food waste.
There are more than 1,500 canned food varieties!
