Baby Carrots...

I just received this in an e-mail...Not sure if it's true or not, but it's still good info...


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 water and chlorine in order to preserve them (this is the same
chlorine used in your pool) since they do not have their skin or natural
protective covering, they give them a higher dose of chlorine.
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
chlorine 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. Chlorine is a very well known carcinogen.
Please let us make this information available to as many people as
possible. If you care about your family and friends, pass it on.
