Historical resource

The development of agriculture brought with it the foundations of civilization. Finding constant and periodic sources of food made sedentary lifestyle possible. But the problem of the perishable nature of agricultural products led the Phoenicians to devise ways to extend the shelf life and protect vegetables from deterioration. This also led to a series of advances regarding the following issues:

    • Harvesting
    • Transportation
    • Seasonality

That the consumption of the products of the earth was not subject to temporality and geographical limitations was essential for a civilization of navigators.

With time and technological advances, the transience of food is an issue to which no absolute solution has been found. It is such that, from the first primitive drying and salting systems, until the first vegetable canning factory that opened in Logroño in 1848, canned vegetables have been a resource widely used in Iberian gastronomy.

Today we have easy access to all kinds of vegetables. Less and less food is subject to seasonality, so that we can consume them throughout the year. The distance of the transports is no longer a problem because through cold stores we can delay their maturation. Thus the shops are provided with vegetables from all over the world, maintaining a constant supply. The mere fact of seeing them exposed without presenting any packaging or treatment can give us the feeling of being the healthiest option. But on a nutritional level is this always the best option?

Most nutrition and health experts recommend the consumption of fresh vegetables, since from the moment the quantity is harvested of minerals and vitamins, in addition to the absorption capacity by our body of these, are diminished. This is why the delay in its consumption can be somewhat harmful in the long term, and that is that fresh vegetables are not always so fresh.
