(NAPSI)—There’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh strawberries—every sweet, delicious bite conjures warm memories of spring and summertime. But did you know that same fresh strawberry taste—and the health benefits—can be enjoyed during the chilly months when you select frozen strawberries?

Strawberries are harvested at their peak of freshness in California, hand-picked from the fields and immediately frozen—capturing all of their nutritious benefits.

“When it comes to strawberries, science shows no significant differences in vitamins, minerals, fiber, or antioxidants between fresh and frozen strawberries*,” says registered dietitian Colleen Wysocki. “People can feel good about having affordable, nutritious frozen strawberries with a longer shelf-life all year long.”

Just 8 a Day

Strawberries are not only low in sugar and calories, they also provide a unique combination of essential nutrients, dietary fiber and phytochemicals. Eight medium strawberries, which is a one-cup serving, has more vitamin C than an orange and is packed with beneficial antioxidants and nutrients including potassium, folate and fiber. Clinical research suggests that eating just one serving of eight strawberries a day may improve heart health, help manage diabetes, support brain health, and reduce the risk of some cancers.

Ways to Use Frozen Strawberries

Choosing frozen is a great way to enjoy delicious strawberry goodness all year long. Frozen strawberries are the perfect ingredient for making sauces for dessert toppings, adding to smoothies, and making jams or jellies. Frozen strawberries can be used to make festive cocktails, and even savory appetizers like salsa or gazpacho.
