carrot

The carrot (Daucus carota subsp. sativus) is a root vegetable. The wild ancestors of the carrot are likely to have come from Afghanistan, which remains the centre of diversity of the wild carrot.  In early use, carrots were grown for their aromatic leaves and seeds, not their roots. Some relatives of the carrot are still grown for these, such as parsley, fennel, dill and cumin. The first mention of the root in classical sources is in the 1st century CE. The modern carrot appears to have been introduced to Europe in the 8-10th centuries. Orange-coloured carrots appeared in the Netherlands in the 17th century.

In 2005, China was the largest producer of carrots and turnips. China accounted for at least one third of the global output, followed by Russia and the United States.

We offer carrot granulate, slices, powder, strips, but especially "crispy" ones, which are excellent not only for bakeries, milk and sugary products, but also for healthy infant food, where the highest production standarts are applied. Origin: Italy and Poland. Shelflife: 12 months.
