Packed with nutritious beta carotene and fiber, carrots are well known as food for the skin, hair and eyes.
The popularity of carrots soared with the carrot-juice craze inaugurated by the famous natural-cancer doctor Max Gerson. Gerson’s theory was that carrot juice helped prevent cancer because of its high potassium content. Although this idea might be part of the story, we now know that carrots are the unique source of a natural pesticide called falcarinol made by the carrot’s root hairs and stored in the carrot itself. Falcarinol has significant cancer prevention and treatment effects as demonstrated in a recent article in the journal Chemical Communications.*
Our Carrot Powder is made from locally sourced, organically grown orange carrots, which we gently steam and dehydrate at low heat. Carrot Powder gives a subtle, sweet taste to any dish and can be enjoyed in stir-fries, deserts or soups.
Our favorite way to use it is as a thickener for chili and other stews.
