Chlorine and baby carrot . . , food for thought !

chlorine, baby carrots

Chlorine and Baby Carrots you buy in the supermarkets !

The following is information from a farmer who grows and packages carrots for IGA, METRO, LOBLAWS, etc.

The small cocktail (baby) carrots you buy in small plastic bags are made using the larger crooked or deformed carrots which are put through a machine which cuts and shapes them into cocktail carrots.

Most people probably know this already.

What you may not know and should know is the following:

Once the carrots are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots they are dipped in a solution of acidic water and chorinee in order to preserve them (this is the same chemical used your pool) since they do not have their skin or natural protective covering, they give them a higher dosage.

You will notice that once you keep these carrots in your refrigerator for a few days, a white covering will form on the carrots, this is the chorinee which resurfaces.

At what cost do we put our health at risk to have esthetically pleasing vegetables which are practically plastic?

We do hope that this information can be passed on to as many people as possible in the hopes of informing them where these carrots come from and how they are processed.

"Chlorinee" is a very well known carcinogen.

A carcinogen is a substance that is capable of causing cancer in humans or animals

Please let us make this information known through this web-page, alkaline-water-site to as many people as possible.

In the past, a third or more of a carrot crop have been tossed away.

Meaning having to discard as much as hundreds of tonnes of carrots a day because of their imperfect growth - wasteful

Today, in north America over 172 million tonnes of carrots are processed into baby peeled carrots.

Peeled baby carrots sales exceed US$400 million yearly

Carrot consumption has increased over 30% since the introduction of baby peeled carrots.

In late 1990's baby peeled carrot consumption exceed whole carrots.

Over 90% of north America consumed baby peeled carrots

Up till 2000, baby peeled carrots have the lion's share of the carrot market, accounting for over 80% of all retail carrot sales.
