WHEN compared with their fresh alternatives, frozen meals are still wrongly misconceived to be the unhealthier option, says Gourmet Meals owner Daniel Wuthrich.

"However, research continuously suggests that it's quite the opposite," he said.

"A common misconception is that frozen foods lack the same levels of nutrition, but in actual fact, frozen meals can retain even more nutrients than fresh food."

Mr Wuthrich said that with every day that fruit and vegetables sat at the shops, or in a fridge, more and more nutrients were lost, while freezing those foods kept their valuable vitamins and nutrients intact.

"If you're after a calorie-controlled diet that's not only convenient but also maintains its nutritional integrity, why not try some of our frozen ready-made meals?" he said.

"Gourmet Meals provides a wide range of healthy and portion-controlled meals that are high in fibre and protein, and, reduced in salt and fat. Our meals are snap frozen in order to retain all their freshness, nutrients and flavours. They go straight from the pot to the blast freezer in order to stay fresh without the need for any added preservatives, flavours or colours."

Mr Wuthrich said all Gourmet Meals were mostly free from gluten and additives, and the act of "snap freezing" ensured the meals retained all their freshness, nutrients and flavours, leaving the natural goodness intact, ready for people to take advantage of once they were heated up to eat.

"Gourmet Meals has a varied menu filled with great tasting meals that are just like home cooking and remind you of the delicious meals mum used to cook when you were growing up," he said.

"Some of our all-time favourites are cottage pie, curry prawns and honey soy chicken, as well as all our roasts and casseroles, not to forget our yummy soups and scrumptious desserts."

"Ordering ready-made frozen meals is extremely convenient for busy parents and time-poor professionals; it also minimises food wastage, which is not only good for the hip pocket, but also reduces the environmental footprint."

"It gives the possibility of having a varied menu throughout the week, every day something different."

"Check out our menu today to discover our wide range of healthy meals that can be delivered straight to your door at a competitive price."
