Organic Carrots Purple 230g Australia
Highlight: Back in season! Purple carrots like blueberries contain anthocyanins with anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic and antimicrobial properties. Purple carrots also exhibit all of the health benefits of the more familiar orange carrots. They contain beneficial fibre which helps weight loss, improves digestion and ensures bowel regularity. They are also a good source of alpha and beta carotene which converts to vitamin A in the body, as well as lutein to support eye health, lycopene to reduce risk of heart disease and polyacetylenes to reduce risk of leukaemia.
Purple, red, yellow, and white carrots were grown long before the appearance of the now ubiquitous sweet, crunchy, orange variety thought to have been cultivated by Dutch growers in the 16th century as a tribute to William of Orange who led the Dutch struggle for independence against the Spanish Hapsburgs.
