As outlined in Canada’s Food Guide, canned fruits and vegetables, as well as frozen foods, are an excellent option for meeting daily dietary goals.
From a nutritional and sensory point of view, recipes prepared with canned ingredients and those prepared with fresh or frozen and cooked ingredients, are quite comparable. Each format as its benefits and offers consumers more choices. As well, Del Monte® offers fruit products without added sugar and vegetable products without added salt to meet consumers’ diverse needs.
All forms of fruits and vegetables – canned, fresh, frozen and dried – provide important nutrients for a healthy diet. Del Monte® believes this is also true for canned foods. The canning process captures nutrients and the sealed can protects the food that remains stable from the storing period to consumption.
This means that they store longer than fresh produce which deteriorates in just a few days. As well, everything in canned products can be consumed reducing food waste.
Del Monte® offers canned fruits and vegetables that are quick and easy to prepare. They’re ready-to-eat, so don’t need to be cooked.
Canned fruits and vegetables are ready-to-eat, so are ready when you need them.
The price of canned products is stable all year long regardless of weather conditions, while fresh vegetable prices vary considerably depending on the growing season and other external factors.
