Product Details
Carrots are a sweet-tasting, bright orange root vegetable.

See here for a full guide to root vegetables.

However, it is possible to find rarer cultivars of the vegetable that are red, yellow and even black.

Carrots grow underground, and they are mainly known for their high vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) content.

That said, it’s essential to eat them with a source of fat if you want to absorb this (fat-soluble) vitamin.

For instance, we can only digest 3% of the vitamin in raw carrots. This figure rises to 39% in carrots cooked with fat (17).
