Conserve in context

A common misconception about canned or conserved food is that it is less nutritious than fresh food. The canning process, however, preserves most of a food’s nutrients. Research has shown that protein, carbs, fat, minerals, and vitamins A, K, D and E all remain intact throughout the canning process. Water-soluble vitamins, like vitamin C and vitamin B, are often damaged during canning though, because the food has to be cooked at a high heat before it can be canned.

And certain foods, like tomatoes and corn, actually release more antioxidants when cooked at high temperatures, which make canned versions of those foods a better source of antioxidants than eating them raw. In many cases, canned foods retain a comparable amount of nutrients as their fresh counterparts.
