Yellow carrots are high in Xanthophylls, they are linked to eye health and may reduce the incidence of lung and other cancers.
Red carrots are high in Lycopene, they are believed to help prevent heart disease and may reduce the risk of certain cancers, including prostate cancer.
Purple carrots are high in AnthocyaninsIn, they have antioxidants, and help reduce the risk of heart disease by slowing blood clotting.
White carrots lack pigment, but still provide fiber and other beneficial phytochemicals.
