A Pot of Nutrients at the Bottom of Rainbow Carrots
| Originating from Central Asia, the orange carrot is just one variety grown around the world. Carrots are related to parsley, dill, fennel, and turnips and grow purple, yellow, and white!
It’s not just the color that is different; rainbow carrots also vary in nutrient content and flavor. Red carrots, for example, contain lycopene, the same pigment found in tomatoes and is thought to lower risk of certain cancers. Yellow carrots contain two pigment compounds,
|xanthophylls and lutein, both of which are also cancer-preventing nutrients.
All carrots are high in beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body where it’s used to promote skin and eye health. Vitamin A is also needed for a properly functioning immune system along with Vitamin C, which carrots are also high in! Rainbow carrots vary in flavor from sweet to peppery and offer a delightful crunch when eaten raw.
