GOOD STUFF TO KNOW ABOUT CARROTS

Carrots, as a root vegetable, soak up a lot of minerals like potassium & calcium from deep in the soil. They are also the best natural source of beta carotene (which your body converts to vitamin A – almost 700% of your RDA of it in one serving of raw carrots!!!).

STORAGE TIPS

Carrots will store for a surprisingly long time in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Keep them in a plastic bag to ensure crispness.
