FOOD INFORMATION : BABY CARROTS



Baby Carrots are not what you think they are http://community.cookinglight.com/showthread.php?referrerid=17575&t=121792 http://www.wisebread.com/baby-carrots-the-frugal-idea-that-isnt http://www.carrotmuseum.co.uk/babycarrot.html

"The following is information from a farmer who grows and packages carrots for IGA, METRO, LOBLAWS, etc.

The small cocktail (baby) carrots you buy in small plastic bags are made using the larger carrots which are put through a machine which cuts and shapes them into cocktail carrots .

What you may not know and should know is the following:
Once the carrots are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots they are dipped in a solution of water and chlorine in order to preserve them (this is the same chlorine used your pool) and since they do not have their skin or natural protective covering, they give them a higher dose of chlorine. You will notice that once you keep these carrots in your refrigerator for a few days, a white covering will form on the carrots; this is the chlorine which resurfaces. At what cost do we put our health at risk to have esthetically pleasing and simple to serve vegetables which are unhealthy? We do hope that this information can be passed on to as many people as possible in the hopes of informing them where these carrots come from and how they are processed. Chlorine is a very well known carcinogen."

Bro Rozzan,
tx so much for the info. i'm quite shocked to read this. really!!! all this while i thought that baby carrot is the baby of the mother carrot. Sedihnyaa.... Tapi semua baby carrot macam tu ke? Yg saya notis, kalau yg beli kat pasaraya tu bila kita stimkan rasanya memang tak manis macam baby carrot yg kita makan kat sesetengah restoran. ke diorg letak gula?

Thanks. You've noticed I had ended my posting on dory fish and baby carrots with "Wallahu 'Alam". In other words, the news may or may not be 100% true, especially in this internet world. Claims are made but sometimes may not be verified but whatever the case is, its good to be on the safer side. As the saying goes, "Be safe than sorry". On the other hand, its good to view any article/claims on the internet "with a pinch of salt". Thank you once again.
