Ice may occur in smaller quantities and is normal in frozen vegetable bags.
Airholes are necessary for the air to get out of the bag
Freezing is an industrial process where the vegetable's core temperature is lowered quickly (± 15-20 min, depending on the product) without harming the cell structure.
Your freezer stabilises food in the condition it is already in. A home freezer lowers the temperature relatively slowly (average of 24 hours). This can have a negative effect on the cell structure because large ice crystals are formed in the cells, which make them less crispy after defrosting. This effect is completely avoided by industrial ultrafast freezing - also known as "Fresh Frozen".

Our vegetables and berries are blanched before they are packed. Blanching fixes the natural colour of the produce and makes it more intense. The deep green colour of garden peas or spinach is therefore not produced with colouring agents. The colour comes from their natural pigments coming to the surface.

It is necessary to add preservatives to be able to keep fresh vegetables for as long as possible?

Fresh vegetables contain no preservatives. When our vegetables and berries are being blanched, it destroys certain harmful enzymes, stops vegetables from developing further, and ‘freezes’ them, as they were, in their current state. This means there is also no decay and no need for preservatives.

In order to retain all the vitamins, minerals, texture and the full flavour of fresh-frozen vegetables, it is important to cook them as briefly as possible. This applies to boiling, steaming and frying.
You can find the exact cooking instructions for each product on their packaging.
