Exploring the Health Benefits of Frozen Prawns From Markwell Foods

When it comes to seafood, prawns are the most popular worldwide. Prawns taste great, and many cultures have long considered them a healthy food. Still, the question remains: “Do frozen prawns contain the same health benefits as fresh ones?”

In short, the answer is yes. In many cases, frozen prawns can even be considered healthier than “fresh’. It all depends on how and when the prawns have been frozen. At Markwell Foods, we are dedicated to bringing you the finest frozen products from across the globe. Our range of frozen prawn products tastes as good as fresh. It also offers all the health benefits of freshly caught prawns. Here is how:


All Nutrients Preserved

There has always been a myth that all kinds of frozen food taste bad and feel even worse. That might be the case when eating the wrong types of frozen food. However, at Markwell Foods, we ensure our frozen prawns taste great and are also rich in nutrients. 

It all comes down to the freezing techniques used. Snap-freezing is an excellent method to lock in the flavour, texture, and nutritional value of prawns. That is how our frozen prawns taste and feel, and they offer the same health benefits as fresh. 

Finding “fresh” prawns to buy in New Zealand is rare. Most “fresh” prawns you buy here are thawed, which means they gradually lose their nutrients until you cook them. On the other hand, our frozen prawns retain all the vitamins and minerals, like zinc, vitamin B12, and phosphorus. They are also high in protein and low in fat.


Perfect Addition to Any Meal

Unlike fresh prawns, our frozen products offer more convenience. They come in a range of sizes to suit all tastes and recipes. Our portfolio also includes raw and cooked frozen prawns and peeled frozen prawns for faster meal preparations. 

Making fish and seafood a regular part of your diet is a healthy choice. With the convenience our frozen prawns offer, you can easily incorporate them into your meals. You can quickly fry, boil, or steam them and add them to salads, pasta, or any other recipes you like.

Long Shelf Life

Our frozen products are easier to store than fresh prawns. They also have a longer shelf life, 18 to 24 months so you can buy and stack them in your freezer. On the other hand, fresh prawns can be kept only for 1 to 3 days. You need to buy and cook them quickly. Otherwise, you risk food poisoning. 

With our frozen prawns, you will waste less food. You can defrost them just when you want to cook them. We ensure they will always taste as good as fresh, so you will not need to compromise on freshness or quality.
