Spinach is a nutrient powerhouse, containing vitamins and minerals, such as folate, fiber, and iron, as well as carotenoids and flavonoids. Because this spinach is frozen at optimal freshness, it contains more of these essential nutrients than fresh spinach, which is likely to have lost most of its nutrients and folate by the time it reaches your kitchen. Plus, fresh spinach cooks down to a fraction of its original volume, making frozen spinach easier to calculate proportions and a much more economical choice for your establishment. While it does not have to be washed or blanched before use, it is recommended to thaw it in a colander and drain or squeeze dry the amount being used to get as much moisture out as possible before cooking.
