When we think of carrots, that bright orange colour that springs to mind is also the source of one of their most important nutritional properties.
But carrots come in other colours too: red, yellow, purple and black. Depending on the colour, they have more or less beta carotene, the main source of vitamin A, lutein, potassium and vitamin K.
Due to their nutritional characteristics, carrots help to combat eye diseases and some forms of tumour. They also help you to feel full and regulate intestinal functions.
Carrots can be cooked in every way, and make an excellent binding ingredient in a thousand recipes.
