I’d say this is pretty close to common knowledge now, but just in case you haven’t heard yet, there’s no such thing as baby carrots. To make baby carrots, food companies buy big carrots and put them through all sorts of processes to make them look the way they do, including soaking them in (an FDA approved amount of) chlorine to clean them. It’s less chlorine than you would put in your pool, so it is safe to eat them still, but the more natural root would just be to buy your own big carrots and cut them up yourself. Not only does cutting out the middle man (probably) save some of the nutrients in your carrots, but carrots also taste fresher when you peel and cut them yourself. Just don’t forget to wash them!
