    It depends on the food, giving you one example:

    Tuna: Fresh versus Packed in water vs packed in oil

    Referring specifically to its nutrient content.Fresh: Total amount of Omega-3 (DHA and EPA) are completely taken.

    Packed in oil: most omega-3 is diluted in the oil, so despite you eat the oil it was packed into and dont rinse it you are loosing it

    Packed in water: Omega-3 is not transferred to the water so its a better choice versus fresh.

    Bottom line, it depends on how the canned food is packed and what nutrients are you interested in taking or leaving.

    Fresh food will be always the best bet in order to take advantage of its full nutients, of course it will always depend on how you cook it.

    Hope it helpsP.S: Dont get fooled by people telling you about no additives - no preservatives  - no added salt or sugar, blah blah.


    Salt: Sodium inside the salt is key for the proper absorption of nutrients taken from the food inside your intestine, so, its needed.Sugar: Glucose is the main source of energy that our body needs.

    Preservatives, read and check what are they and if the quantity inside what you are buying is enough to cause adverse effects.

    So instead of avoiding something, read, investigate and educate yourself. "The poison is in the dosage, even drinking exessive water can kill us" so dont get fooled.

    Very simple to understand the desired answer. As we say an apple a day keeps the doctor away let's apply the formula to distinguish between Fresh food and canned food. You will find a very simple answer, my friend. If we cut an apple and leave it for 1 to 2 hours then you will see the changed irritating colour of fresh apple here we can guess Canned foods are stored and preserved in cans for years with different harmful chemicals and just flavours.

    thank you

    Fresh food is fresh… NOT canned, NOT jarred, and NOT frozen! It's natural, and FRESH! Like just the way it was picked. (That's why it's CALLED “fresh!”)

    Canned food is CANNED! (This includes foods packed in glass jars, too!) Usually a pretty hefty amount of salt, and possibly OTHER preservatives MIGHT have been added to foods before canning, to prevent later spoilage.

    Canning (& vacuum-packed foods) makes foodstuffs safe to eat for at least 2 years after they were picked and processed in the canning method. (Often green veggies will become a duller, more grey-green color after canning.)

    Frozen green veggie foods (like Peas and green beans) retain their vibrant, BOLD green NATURAL color, unlike canned versions of them, which gives them a more dull, GREY-green hue.

    Fresh is almost always better.

    Fresh tends to be more natural and unprocessed - which means it's healthier but expires quicker.

    Canned foods require preservatives - usually that preservative is sodium which we all know is not good for your health.

    Taste wise, frozen is better. Vitamin wise, frozen is better. Price, canned is usually much cheaper.

    Fresh food - no additives - no preservatives  - no added salt or sugar - just food.  (only risk with fresh foods would be anything used during the growing process - eating "organic" choices also removes that risk)  

    Canned foods - read the label - added salt - added preservatives - added chemicals - what is added depends on what was canned.

    Frozen foods are a better option that canned foods - almost as good as fresh - most have no additives or preservatives and no added salt or sugars.

    One is fresh and the other comes in a can.
