Deep Frozen Peas & Carrots is the product prepared from the fresh, clean, sound, immature seed of the common garden pea and the fresh, clean, sound roots of the carrot plant. Frozen vegetables are often considered an affordable and convenient alternative to fresh vegetables. They’re usually not only cheaper and easier to prepare but also have a longer shelf life and can be purchased year-round. Peas and carrots contain four carotenoids: alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Alpha- and beta-carotene function as antioxidants, and they're converted into vitamin A, which is essential for vision and healthy skin. Deep Frozen Peas & Carrots generally retain many of their nutrients. However, freezing may also increase or decrease the nutritional value of certain vegetables.
