Frozen food companies in India: With changing eating habits and work culture, people are now finding it easier to consume frozen food than cooking. It is a blessing to be prepared to eat food stored in the fridge rather than cooking right from the start, this is true for working professionals who return home late. Most frozen foods can be prepared in minutes and they are also quite tasty. The frozen food industry has seen a considerable boom in the past decade and many brands are selling their products in the market.
The Best Frozen Foods To Stock In Your Freezer, Say Dietitians Stock your freezer with these belly-flattening picks and save hundreds of calories on the daily.
We do know one thing to be very true: finding foods you can love—and that will love you back—truly is possible, if you know what to look for. And that goes for frozen foods, too. While they often get a bit of a bad rap, microwave meals aren’t are as nutritionally destitute as you might think—in fact, they can even help lead to quick weight loss: A study in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that when you opt for a frozen meal from the grocery store, you’ll consume an average of 253 fewer calories and 2.6 fewer grams of saturated fat per day than if you stopped at a fast-food joint.
But like anything else in life, it’s all about making the right choices when it comes to frozen foods.
“While there are plenty of frozen foods that aren’t considered very nutritious, there are plenty that are healthy options; it just comes down to how processed the food is,” says Diana Gariglio-Clelland, Next Luxury‘s registered dietitian, and certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist. “Processed foods tend to be loaded with sodium and preservatives, as well as added sugars to enhance taste—frozen TV entrées are a prime example.”
What makes for healthier frozen food?
- At least 20 grams of protein
- More fiber
- Less saturated fat
- Low in sodium
- Contains vegetables
The easiest way to know if the frozen foods you’re stocking up on are healthy options? It all about doing a little reading before you toss it into your shopping cart.
“It’s important to turn over the nutrition label and take a look at the ingredients list,” says Mackenzie Burgess, RDN, and recipe developer at Cheerful Choices. “Choose frozen foods with a short list of ingredients you can actually pronounce. This is a sign that the product is less processed and contains more whole-food ingredients.”
Taking a few extra minutes to spot if a frozen food has a long list of questionable ingredients or is packed high in sodium can make all the difference.
“It’s best to keep your sodium intake under 2,300 milligrams per day, yet the average American consumes around 3,400 milligrams of sodium per day,” says Gariglio-Clelland. “To determine if a frozen food is really high in sodium, check the nutrition facts label. If one serving of the food (keeping in mind that people often eat more than one serving at a time) provides more than 20% of the daily value for sodium, that means it’s pretty high in sodium and will get you to that 2,300 milligrams per day limit more quickly.”
You’ll also want to “be aware of added sauces, cheese, or gravy—these added components will increase the sodium content as well as the saturated fat,” adds Mia Syn, MS, RDN.
Which frozen foods should you always be stocked up on?
It’s as simple as fruits and vegetables.
“The best frozen foods to have in your freezer should have minimal ingredients and be as close to their natural form as possible. Frozen fruits and vegetables without added sauces or sugar are the best to have on hand. In fact, frozen produce can be richer in nutrients than fresh, especially if it’s not currently in season in your area,” says Gariglio-Clelland.
Yes, frozen fruits and veggies are just as good for you (if not better!) as their fresh counterparts, and, come with other great benefits—they last longer and don’t cost as much.

Benefits of Frozen Foods
Before we learn about the various companies that manufacture frozen foods in India, let us look at the benefits of frozen foods. These benefits will break some myths related to frozen foods.
- Frozen foods include a lot of natural salt so they last for a very long time
- Frozen food free of preservatives
- Frozen foods retain most of their nutritional value
- If you are trying to save money then frozen foods are just what you need as they cost much less than fresh food.
- Frozen food is safe because cold eliminates any bacteria
Why you should cook food and soup to keep in freezer?
You get whatever you want and your way and at any time.
When you make bulk batches of soup, you’re presumably making a few different kinds, particularly those that you like. When you do this, you get to enjoy the soups that no one else likes!
Having a well-stocked freezer is always a good idea. You can have pre-prepared meals at the ready for busy nights, or whip out a dish when you don’t have time to make the trek to the grocery store. Portioned sauces also come in handy, in case you’re craving a comforting bowl of pasta—just defrost on demand and dig in.
Luckily, there are several recipes that happen to freeze particularly well, from lasagna and tomato sauce to stews and chilis. We like to have a few in our back pocket for all of the scenarios above and more—besides, if you have leftovers, it’s easy to save them and make sure they don’t go to waste. Check out some of our favorite freezer-friendly dishes and recipes below, supplemented with tips from our test kitchen.
A note about food safety: If you’re cooking something and plan to freeze it, cool it quickly to room temperature—you can do this using an ice water bath or by putting the food in a shallow container, so it spreads out and cools faster. (Metal is particularly good for conducting hot and cold temperatures.) Then, cover and freeze the dish. Don’t put hot food right in the refrigerator or freezer. If you do, it will lower the temperature—the danger zone for food is 40–140 degrees Fahrenheit, since that’s the range where bacteria grows. If you’re planning on freezing a lot of food at once, chill it in the refrigerator first so the temperature in the freezer doesn’t rise.
For thawing food, make sure it thaws evenly and keep it below 40 degrees Fahrenheit or above 140. You can thaw slowly in the fridge, or quickly under cold running water.
