Product Description

Baby colored carrots are carrots that are harvested young because they are a fast maturing variety, grown precisely for their immature sized root. Colored carrots may be new to some people but purple, red and yellow carrots were actually eaten more than 1,000 years ago. In fact, orange carrots are actually the “mutant” carrot.

Each color of carrot has a different health benefit of its own: orange carrots promote healthy eyes and well-being. Yellow carrots support good eye health, fight against macular degeneration, and reduce the risk of hardening arteries. Red carrots are believed to guard against heart disease and cancers. White protect against disease. Purple carrots have powerful antioxidants, can prevent heart disease by slowing blood clotting and are good anti-inflammatory agents.
