Baby Peeled Carrots
Carrots used in the production of baby peeled carrots are a specific variety that are smaller in diameter than regular table carrots. The end product is shorter in length than a regular carrot because they are cut to size. They are typically more tender and sweeter than a table carrot. Similar to other carrot varieties, they are an excellent source of vitamin A, which actually accumulates during the months of storage after the carrots have been harvested. Carrots have few rivals when it comes to beta-carotene. Just a half-cup serving of cooked carrots provides four times the RDA of vitamin A in the form of protective beta-carotene.
