Why Do We Deliver Fresh-to-Frozen?

Every method of food preparation and delivery has different benefits and drawbacks. However, delivering fresh-to-frozen meals provides multiple advantages for the delivery company and clients. According to North Dakota State University, “Freezing is one of the easiest, quickest, most versatile and most convenient methods of preserving foods.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition uses the freshest ingredients to prepare delicious and nutritious frozen meals for home delivery. 

What Are the Benefits of Fresh-to-Frozen Foods?

Fresh-to-frozen foods have many benefits compared to whole or processed foods. LifeSpring Home Nutrition uses fresh ingredients to create tasty and nutritious meals and freezes the complete dishes to ensure they retain nutrients and taste for up to several months.

Some of the primary benefits of fresh-to-frozen meals include the following: 

  • Meals can be kept for longer and eaten at the client’s convenience
  • Meals retain higher levels of nutrients compared to fresh or ultra-processed delivered meals
  • Food continues to look colorful and taste delicious even after being stored in the freezer for long periods

LifeSpring Home Nutrition uses modern techniques to freeze foods quickly and efficiently for delivery. According to Foods, “Freezing technology is one of the most well established long-term preservation techniques for producing high-quality, nutritious foods with prolonged shelf-life.” Many people with specialized dietary needs cannot access the variety of meals they deserve. Home-delivered meals ensure clients get to choose what they eat and when they eat it. LifeSpring Home Nutrition prioritizes providing a dignity of choice to individuals in Californian communities. 

Preserving Foods at Their Most Nutritious

Food loses nutrients over time and as it goes through different stages of cooking and storage. Freezing meals immediately after preparing them ensures the most nutrients are retained. Vegetables and fruits often taste better for longer if they are frozen. LifeSpring Home Nutrition sources high-quality ingredients, including some from local food companies.

According to the previously mentioned article by North Dakota State University, “Properly frozen foods maintain more of their original color, flavor and texture and generally more of their nutrients than foods preserved by other methods.” Preserving foods at their most nutritious ensures greater consistency. Clients can rely on their delivered meals to always taste fresh and provide them with a balanced mixture of essential vitamins and minerals. 

How Does the Flash-Freezing Process Improve the Final Product?

Flash-freezing is a process used to ensure food retains its nutrients more effectively. The process causes bacteria and other food contaminants to become dormant and kills potentially harmful parasites commonly found in fresh whole foods. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), “Freezing to 0 °F inactivates any microbes — bacteria, yeasts and molds — present in food.” In addition, “Trichina and other parasites can be destroyed by sub-zero freezing temperatures.” People receiving medically tailored meals (MTMs) may have compromised immune systems and other health issues. Frozen meals and food safety practices protect people from potential foodborne germs or illnesses. 

LifeSpring Home Nutrition Uses Fresh-to-Frozen to Reduce Food Waste

Food waste is a significant problem for many people who struggle with food insecurity. All forms of food waste impact the environment and communities around California. Some people also experience significant emotional distress if they are forced to dispose of unused food.

Food waste contributes to the following: 

  • Increased greenhouse gasses in the environment 
  • Food insecurity and other social issues 
  • Negative influences on biodiversity 

LifeSpring Home Nutrition reduces food waste during meal preparation and delivery by providing people with frozen meals. 

Fresh-to-Frozen Meals Are More Convenient

Other meal delivery programs offer fresh food that must be eaten the same day or within a very short period of time. However, not everyone wants or needs the food on the day it is delivered. For example, someone receiving fresh meal deliveries from a different company may want to go out to eat with their family several days during the week. Any food delivered during that time will no longer be good and must be thrown out. LifeSpring Home Nutrition reduces food waste by providing people with frozen meals they can easily reheat whenever they want to eat them. The option to store the food until it is needed makes it more convenient than other home-delivered meal options.

Delivered Meals Reduce the Risk of Preventable Diseases

Various factors may contribute to the development of preventable diseases. People reduce the risk of experiencing preventable diseases by eating nutritional meals, staying active, making healthy lifestyle choices, and getting quality sleep each night. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Most people in the United States don’t eat a healthy diet and consume too much sodium, saturated fat, and sugar, increasing their risk of chronic diseases.” LifeSpring Home Nutrition helps people avoid preventable diseases by ensuring they have access to nutritional foods, reducing their need to rely on unhealthy foods and drinks.

Some of the preventable diseases home-delivered meals help protect against include: 

  • Obesity 
  • Heart disease 
  • Type II diabetes
  • Some cancers

LifeSpring Home Nutrition has a registered dietician (RD) available to help clients determine which meals best meet their needs and reduce their risk of preventable disease. RDs also educate individuals in the community on how eating habits affect overall health. For many people, fresh-to-frozen meals provide a perfect balance of convenience and nutrition. 

Fresh-to-frozen meals retain more taste, color, and nutrients compared to other food processing methods used to extend shelf life. LifeSpring Home Nutrition keeps food consistently high-quality by using the fresh-to-frozen method of preparing and storing food.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
