Baby Carrots you buy in the Supermarkets - Good to Know
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 crooked or deformed carrots which are put through a machine which cuts and shapesthem into cocktail carrots . most people probably know this already.
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 in your pool)since they do not have their skin or natural protective covering, they give them a higher dose of chlorine.
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.
Please let us make this information available to as many people as possible. If you care about your family and friends, pass it on.
