Purple Carrot Powder
Purple or black carrot is vegetables with a long history. Countries of origin are Afghanistan and northern Iran, where it was grown already in 10th century. It came to Europe a little later, mentions about it can be found in ancient Rome records. The Romans believed that this carrot and its seeds were an aphrodisiac. Nowadays it grows mostly in southern Europe and Asia.
Its characteristic purple to black colour comes from pigments called anthocyanins,which give it an unmistakably distinctive hue, as is the case, for example, with blueberries, cherries or grapes. It also contains high doses of vitamin A, B, C, and E..
Purple carrot powder enriches each meal with a variety of vitamins and antioxidants, giving it a rich reddish-violet colour. The carrot from which our powder is made grew on a farm in Asia and was hand-picked by local farmers. Due to its ideal climatic conditions and fertile soil, it contains very valuable nutrients.
Why are vitamins preserved in our superfoods the same way as in fresh fruit?
Excellent colour, taste and all vitamins are preserved thanks to the method of freeze-drying - lyophilization. The whole secret of lyophilization is in the process of fruit deep freezing and thus removal of water. The result is preserved dried fruit, in our case ground to powder form, with all nutrients preserved and longer shelf life.
We always choose products in premium quality and from the 100% ripe fruit which contains maximum amount of nutrients and vitamins. Due to the lower weight of dried fruit, you can eat more compared to fresh one and thus you get more nutrients and energy.
