Packing Details

Vacuum packing is a method of packaging that removes air from the package prior to sealing. Shrink film is sometimes used to have a tight fit to the contents. Vacuum packing reduces atmospheric oxygen, limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria or fungi, and preventing the evaporation of volatile components.

Description


FRESH CARROTS WITHOUT TOPS 

The carrots are a biennial plant in the umbellifer family Apiaceae. It grows a rosette of leaves in the spring and summer while building up the stout taproot. Fast-growing varieties mature within three months of sowing the seed, while slower-maturing varieties are harvested in autumn and winter. The roots contain high quantities of alpha and beta-carotene and are a good source of vitamin K and vitamin B6.

The Carrot should be Firm (not flaccid or limp), straight with a uniform taper from ‘shoulder’ to ‘tip’, Bright orange and there should be little residual “hairiness” from lateral roots. Fresh Carrots are harvested by machine and carefully hand selected in the packing.

Beta-carotene Consumption

Cancer

A variety of dietary carotenoids have been shown to have anticancer effects due to their antioxidant power in reducing free radicals in the body.

Lung Cancer

One study found that current smokers who did not consume carrots had three times the risk of developing lung cancer compared with those who ate carrots more than once a week.

Colon Rectal Cancer

Beta-carotene consumption has been shown to have an inverse association with the development of colon cancer in the Japanese population.

Leukemia

Carrot juice extract was shown to kill leukemia cells and inhibit their progression in a 2011 study.

Prostate Cancer

Among younger men, diets rich in beta-carotene may play a protective role against prostate cancer, according to a study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health’s Department of Nutrition.

Vision

According to Duke ophthalmologist Jill Koury, MD, vitamin A deficiency causes the outer segments of the eye’s photoreceptors to deteriorate, damaging normal vision. Correcting vitamin A deficiencies in foods high in beta-carotene will restore vision.

Studies have shown that it is unlikely that most people will experience any significant positive changes in their vision from eating carrots unless they have an existing vitamin A deficiency, which is common in developing countries.

Antioxidants and Phytochemicals

So where did all the hype surrounding carrots and vision come from? During World War II, the British Royal Air Force started an advertising campaign claiming that the secret to their fighter pilots clear, the sharp vision was carrots. Realistically, the fighter pilot’s accuracy was due to a new radar system the British wanted to keep secret from the Germans, but the rumor spread and remains popular today.

    Carrots are often thought of as the ultimate health food. You were probably told to "eat your carrots" by your parents and you probably tell your kids the same thing, and when asked why, you explain, "Because they're good for you!"
