freezing juice

daniefondaniefon Raw Newbie

I needed some vegetable pulp to make some pretzels today so, I juiced a bunch of zucchini. It was more than I could drink, so I froze it in small cubes to use in my morning smoothies instead of regular ice. Does anyone know if the juice loses it’s nutrition and/or enzymes when frozen?

    On average, there is a 5% decrease in nutrition… some vitamins do not lose their nutritional value, but some can lose up to 30% when frozen, like Vitamin C. Thanks to bitt for posting this link.

    As for enzymes, there is some denaturization; however, percentage lost is not known.

    P.S. I ran into debbietook’s post on enzyme denaturization after freezing. Here’s her link.
