Is there any nafka minah between the various brands of frozen (checked) vegetables? Bodek, Eden, Golden Flow etc.November 30, 2011 11:32 pm at 11:32 pm #831423smartcookieMember
I don’t think there’s any difference with all those brands. I always use Eden- because they have a Greenhouse Grown line of produce with is definitely bug free. No other brand has that.November 30, 2011 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #831424TheGoqParticipant

I use Bodek or Golden Flow, & I steam them either on the stove or in the microwave.December 1, 2011 3:42 am at 3:42 am #831426TheGoqParticipant

Love Eden’s frozen broccoli or cauliflower florets. I find that their pieces are bigger than the other brands.They’re not cheap, though.December 1, 2011 8:22 pm at 8:22 pm #831428A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
Generally, you can buy corn, peas or stringbeans from Birdseye because they are round and don’t have the inner parts that, for instance, broccolli has. Therefore, it doesn’t have the same bug issues.December 1, 2011 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #831429JotharMember
Different brands of frozen veggies use different cleaning processes. Some rely more on samples than others, some reply more on washing than others. Some rely more on the greenhouse process itself than others. There is actually a wide machlokes between the OU and the Star-K on this. Positive Produce is the cleanest, but they achieve it using chumras that my rav views as Bal Tashchis.As always, ask your LOR.December 2, 2011 2:28 am at 2:28 am #831430
Our family preference is Golden Flow for quality and reliablility.
If there is a problem at any time, they will openly recall and admit.
