Carrot Powder 1 lb. Bulk
Botanical Name: Daucus carota
Note: Even though carrots exhibit great nutritional benefits, they are not a complete food.
Of all the commonly consumed vegetables, carrots provide the highest amount of
provitamin A carotenes. Carrots also offer an excellent source of fiber, vitamin K, and
biotin. They are a good source of vitamins B6 and C, potassium, and thiamine.
Carrots contain a large amount of antioxidant compounds which help to protect against
cardiovascular disease and cancer. The high intake of carotene has been linked with a
20 percent decrease in postmenopausal breast cancer and up to a 50 percent decrease in
the cancers of the cervix, bladder, colon, prostate, larynx, and esophagus. Extensive
studies have shown that a diet that includes at least one carrot per day could cut the rate
of lung cancer in half.
Carrots are also effective in promoting good vision, especially night vision.
Beta-carotene provides protection against macular degeneration and the development of
senile cataracts - which is the leading cause of blindness in the elderly.
To preserve freshness, aroma and potency, our products are packaged in 1 lb. polyfoil, barrier seal bags which protects the contents from light exposure and moisture.
