  • Nash's Rainbow Carrots
  • Rainbow carrots are a great way to add color to your winter menus and to boost your mood and nutrition. They offer different benefits based on the color. Below are some of the additional benefits you get from the rainbow of colors.
     
    Orange: Beta and alpha carotene pigment. This promotes vitamin A production by the body, which is essential for healthy eyes.
     
    Purple: Anthocyanin, beta and alpha carotene pigment. Purple carrots typically have an orange core, and their pigment-related nutrients may provide additional vitamin A and have protective health benefits.
     
    Red: Lycopene and beta-carotene pigment. Lycopene is the same red pigment that gives tomatoes their deep color and is linked to a lower risk of certain cancers, such as prostate cancer.
     
    Yellow: Xanthophykks and lutein. Both are linked to cancer prevention and better eye health.
     
    White: The nutrients don’t come from the pigment but from the fiber, which promotes healthy digestion.
