CARROTS

Carrot storage tips

Store carrots in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to three weeks. Remove the leafy green carrot tops before storing, or the greens will take moisture out of the carrots and make them tough and wilted.

Did you know?

Baby carrots are full-grown carrots that have been peeled and shaped into smaller pieces by a machine. Because they no longer have the skin, they have less fibre than regular sized carrots.

What’s a serving size of carrots?

Carrots belong to the Vegetables and Fruit food group in Canada’s Food Guide. One Food Guide serving is ½ cup (125 mL).
