A:

No, leafy green vegetables do not lose their vitamin K when frozen. In fact, ounce per ounce, frozen greens have slightly more vitamin K when fresh. This is because when greens are frozen, they lose some water, which slightly concentrates the nutrient. This is not true for all nutrients, though - certain nutrients are lost with the water, such as vitamin C. Best of luck with the greens!
