Baby Carrots

Baby Carrots is an immature carrot, grown in a small size. Is a root vegetable, which gets its characteristic, bright orange color from β-carotene, and lesser amounts of α-carotene, γ-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin. α and β-carotenes are partly metabolized into vitamin A, providing more than 100% of the Daily Value (DV) per 100 g serving of carrots. Carrots are also a good source of dietary fiber (11% DV), vitamin K (16% DV) and vitamin B6 (11% DV), but otherwise have modest content of other essential nutrients.
