You want to watch those "baby" carrots........................not healthy.

how come?

I do notice at various times of the year they are not as flavourful and then I buy the large ones and do a bit more prep work.

Several years ago there was a report about those things. They are not baby carrots, they are full grown carrots that were starting to rot so they just peeled off the rot and sold them as baby carrots. When I heard that I quit buying them.

It's possible they cleaned up their act since that report 4 or 5 years ago. I guess no one has died.:)

possibly...they are handy for caramelizing since they are all close in size...I could eat a whole bag of caramelized.

I might have to have some for dinner tomorrow

also, thanks for that article...I thought all baby carrots were shaved down...apparently some are just picked super young

Generally, consumers can determine whether small carrots are true baby carrots or not by looking at what's listed on the packaging. Labels that say "baby carrots" appear on packages of very young carrots that are harvested while the vegetables are still quite tiny. Labels that proclaim "baby-cut carrots" appear on packages of petite carrots made by chopping down and polishing much larger versions of the vegetable.
