Canned Peaches Claimed to Be as Nutritious as Fresh -- Really?

Canned Peaches

Story at-a-glance -

  • In a comparison of canned peaches versus fresh, the canned peaches were found to have similar levels of nutrients as fresh, and in some cases were found to actually have higher levels
  • Even though nutrient levels may be similar, cans typically contain the endocrine-disrupting chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) in their linings; consumption of canned goods is a major avoidable route of exposure to this dangerous chemical
  • Canned foods also typically contain fewer antioxidants, enzymes and biophotons than fresh, and often have large amounts of processed salt, sugar, high fructose corn syrup or other additives added
  • Ideally, strive to consume your food in the most natural form possible, which means fresh, not canned. Other options include fresh frozen, as well as mason jar preservation of seasonal produce
