  • Calcium – 3% of DV
  • Vitamin C – 10% of DV
  • Iron – 2% of DV

Selecting tips

  • Select a firm carrot with a bright orange colour and fairly smooth skin.
  • If buying carrots with the leaves still intact, look for vibrant, green coloured leaves that are fresh and healthy.
  • Avoid carrots that have lumps, are dull in colour and black near the head.

Storage tips

  • Carrots should be dry before refrigerating and kept inside a plastic bag. If left to lie in water they will develop soft rots.
  • If allowed to dry out they become limp and may develop a brown surface discolouration. This is harmless and can be
    removed by peeling.
  • Carrots can be stored for several weeks.
