California Cling Peaches, a Protein-Packed Peach Smoothie #Recipe & Prize Pack #Giveaway ~ CAN 03/09

| February 18, 2014 | 78 Comments

In celebration of National Canned Food Month this February, the California Cling Peach Board commissioned a new Canadian survey that has uncovered some serious misconceptions about canned peaches.

The survey reveals that almost two thirds of respondents (61% of people who purchase canned peaches and 62% who don’t purchase them) think that the canning process adversely affects the nutritional content of peaches. Moreover, 65 per cent of those who purchase canned peaches believe the canning process affects the appearance and 70 per cent believe it impacts the flavour.

However, these misconceptions are incorrect. In fact, California cling peaches are picked and packed usually within 24 hours, ensuring they retain their appearance, texture, flavour and nutritional content. The canning process has also been proven to increase key nutrients. According to a study by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, canned peaches are higher in antioxidants and Vitamin A and are nearly four times higher in Vitamin C and 10 times higher in folate than fresh peaches.

The survey also reveals additional key findings about canned peach users:

·      69% indicate that reducing the sugar content would likely encourage them to buy canned peaches more frequently than they currently do. California cling peaches do not contain added sugar. They are packed in water or their own light juice.

·      69% say knowing the peaches came from Canada or the U.S. would likely encourage users to buy canned peaches more often.

·      55% say convenience is what they prefer about canned peaches over fresh.

The cold winter months can leave you struggling to find fresh, economical local fruit and wondering how to increase your fruit and nutrient intake. Luckily, canned California peaches are full of the vitamins your body needs. Not only are they nutritious, canned California cling peaches are delicious and versatile and can be included in a number of recipes like this one below.
