Actually they don't. When ever you take a raw product and freeze, dry, or cook it there is nutritional loss. With frozen it would be more correct to say nutrient escape. Most vitamins are not damaged by freezing, but freezing causes cells to burst. Upon thawing there is a loss of nutrients. With bloodworms for example the water is often red do to escaped fluids from the bloodworms. They are only nutritionally equivalent if everything is consumed and I doubt the fish will be able to consume the fluids.
A good quality prepared food IS a well balanced diet in itself.....
