Dehydrated carrots are perfect for a good healthy soup. They are rich in vitamins, fiber, beta-carotene and have strong antioxidant power. Our carrots come from Canada. The 250g bag contains approximately 6.5lb of fresh carrots.
The plant is believed to have been discovered 5,000 years ago in what is now Afghanistan. Wild colonies, with red or brown roots, still abound there. Then begins a long journey through the centuries which will bring the carrot, according to human explorations, to the Middle East, Asia, Africa, as well as to Europe where it has been cultivated since the 18th century. In fact, the orange carrot is the product of human intervention. It was the Dutch who, wishing to show their loyalty to the Maison d'Orange, a Protestant principality in France, crossed red-fleshed and white-fleshed varieties in the 16th century and ended up obtaining an orange root.
