Research Studies

Scientific research highlights the nutritional value, convenience and affordability of canned food.  

Some canned foods actually yield higher amounts of essential nutrients than their fresh or frozen counterparts as the cooking process concentrates the food. In addition, in some cases, the heating process used in canning enhances the degree to which some naturally occurring, disease-fighting compounds are absorbed by the body.

In these sections you will find both nutrition and behavioral research conducted on behalf of the CFA.
