It’s safe to say that we all know fresh fruit tastes better than frozen fruit or fruit that has been sitting around for days. But why exactly is that? There are a few reasons which we will cover in this article. We consulted with Doug, manager and owner of a store that sells smoothies in the Outer Banks, North Carolina. A great deal of the information in this article comes from what he told us.

When fruit is frozen, it tends to warp the cell walls at a microscopic level. Sometimes these cell walls can break and that is why unthawed fruit is mushy. You lose the physical integrity of the fruit. Naturally, this will affect the taste as well.

You definitely don’t want fruit ripened using artificial ripening techniques, like calcium carbide for example. This process causes the fruit to emit gasses which when consumed by humans, may be hazardous to your health. There has been a warning in reason months about this very process.

Furthermore, fruits which are artificially preserved have similar warnings. Chemicals and treatments used in this process are inconclusive at best when studied on how they affect the human body. The best fruit is one that is naturally grown, ripened and stored. There simply are no substitutes for fresh fruit.

Smoothies should be blended and served with all-natural ingredients and have no added chemicals. After all, when people order a smoothie, they want a healthy treat, not one which is loaded down with preservatives.

So, the next time you order a fruit smoothie from a store, do some quick research to see if they provide fruit in its freshest state. Or do they simply blend frozen fruit? It’s information worth knowing.
