Italy: New harvest of black carrots now available at Aureli Mario

Aureli Mario as been trying to confer added value to an apparently "poor" crop such as carrots thanks to creativity and innovation for many years. In addition to new and original shapes, Aureli Mario is experimenting with colour - not only orange carrots, but also yellow and black ones.

Black carrots, or "purple carrots", as his clients call them, are rich in fibres and mineral salts and are also an excellent source of total polyphenols.

The polyphenols in black carrots are mainly anthocyanins, those pigments that make it purple, and phenolic acids. Such micro-nutrients have important functions in our organism. They protect from capillary leaks and have an anti-bacterial and immunostimulant action and of course they are antioxidant.

Black carrots were introduced in 2008 and cultivation areas have increased since. They are available as packed unwashed and fresh-cut (packed baby carrots or carrot shreds). The 2013 harvest started about a week ago.

This precious product completes the colour range supplied by Aureli Mario.
