Are frozen vegetables safe to eat if they are not blanched?

Rating: 50

Yes. They are safe to eat, but the quality (color, flavor and texture) will be poorer than that of vegetables which have been blanched. Blanching slows or stops the action of enzymes which cause loss of flavor, color and texture. Source: Original FAQ posted at
