The Truth About Frozen Meat

At Aspey Farms, we're dedicated to deliver nutrient-dense meats safely to your door, and a common question we get is, "does freezing meat affect the quality and nutrition of the meat?"

According to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), freezing meat preserves its nutrients effectively, ensuring that most vitamins and minerals are maintained. [1]

What's the Secret?
The secret lies in the rapid freezing process and maintaining the correct temperatures, which leads to the formation of smaller ice crystals. This not only preserves the meat's nutritional integrity but also its quality.
