. A 1997 study found that canned fruits and vegetables are as rich with dietary fiber and vitamins as the same corresponding fresh or frozen foods, and in some cases the canned products are richer than their fresh or frozen counterparts. The heating process during canning appears to make dietary fiber more soluble, and therefore more readily fermented in the colon into gases and physiologically active byproducts. Canned tomatoes have a higher available lycopene content. Consequently, canned meat and vegetables are often among the list of food items that are stocked during emergencies.
Do you eat you canned food, /ck/?
i used canned green beans to make fritters, and sometimes canned chickpeas to make with pasta and tomato sauce for a quick dinner.
i don't think canned food is inherently worse for you, but most people drain the liquid they come in and that removes some of the nutrition.
some canned food also has a lot of salt in it too.
i can my own meat, dry beans and fresh produce
it's about a brazilion times better than what you buy at the store..
eg: a bushel of tomatoes costs $10 at harvest and i get a years supply + some to give away.. no salt, no preservatives just delicious, cheap harvest tomatos
The mild burning off of your flesh is part of the pleasure of a pineapple though!
Newer varieties unfortunately are working to breed out the enzymes that digest protein and create more blandly sweet pineapple... Pray that such work does not find success.
Fuck, I thought I was allergic to pineapple because eating raw pineapple hurt my mouth and tongue and I quickly spit everything out but googling raw pineapple right now lets me know that apparently it is normal for raw pineapple to hurt your mouth.

I'm having trouble working out how that is a consequence of what was previously established in the paragraph. Feels like a completely unrelated fact to me.
Pretty much the only canned foods I buy, and will ever buy. I'm not a big fan of buying canned things in general, but the top three are simply too convenient in time preparation and price. Everything else gets freshly made, including boxed shit like pasta.
I don't have much of a choice. I'm poor, so I have to buy canned goods. You can make some pretty decent soups and meals with canned veggies and whatnot, but damn, I wish my budget would allow some fresh veggies.
my neighbors destroyed my garden. all my buckets of dirt and seeds destroyed on my back porch because my neighbor didn't want bees, and my other neighbor had a party where they took my remaining buckets and threw them in the dumpster.
