|I choose to buy full size organic carrots for our family and guinea pigs.|
|We love our carrots!|
1. You're paying a higher price for a "fancy" product that is all about marketing without any real benefit. The baby carrots you see on the supermarket shelves are thin regular carrots that are cut in half and peeled down into what you see in the package.
2. These carrots cut into baby sizes are washed in a stronger bleach solution to preserve them since they have had the protective skin removed - while it's still within levels deemed safe, I don't see it necessary when normal carrots work just as well.
3. When these carrots are peeled, they are losing valuable nutrition within the skin. Carrot skins contain phenolic compounds, which may help prevent cancer among other health benefits.
