Canned foods are often thought to be less nutritious than fresh or frozen foods, but research shows that this is not always true.
In fact, canning can preserve many of a food's nutrients.
Protein, carbs, and fat are unaffected by the canning process, and most minerals and fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, D, E, and K are also retained.
As such, studies show that foods high in certain nutrients maintain their high nutrient levels after being canned.
If you’re asking “are canned foods healthy?” the answer is, yes! Much like fresh produce, canned fruits and vegetables can be nutritious.
Canned foods are a convenient and practical way to add more nutrient-dense foods to your diet.
The canning process, which has been used to preserve food for centuries, keeps food safe and nutritious until consumed, which not only cuts back on food waste, but also means your pantry can hold a treasure of quick meal solutions.
Easily add protein and fiber to salads, pasta dishes, soups, and even sweets using canned beans, for example. In fact, bean-eaters have a lot going for them. A study found that chickpea and hummus eaters consume higher levels of a variety of nutrients, including fiber, folate, magnesium and potassium.
And a 10-year study found that plant-based diets that include beans, fruits, veggies, and whole grains, protected against diabetes - lowering the odds of developing the disease by 40 percent.
