“Baby-carrot” is an ordinary carrot
Small charming “beta-carrots” are sold as useful snacks, for example, in McDonald’s. Sometimes packaging with fresh “Baby-grace” can be found in the vegetable department of the supermarket. Such carrots are very small-with a finger length, and it is adored by people who like to crunch with something useful.
But this “young carrots” actually represents an ordinary washed and chopped carrot. Nothing special, pure marketing. Baby-carrot invented in 1986 Mike Yurosec, who had a lot of carrots of an “inaccurate” species: ugly, deformed, looking so unappetizing that the shops refused to purchase it.
So, Mike solved this problem, experimenting with a knife and a vegetable cleaning: he simply cleaned and cut the carrots, giving it the appearance of mini-clockwork. Such a nice vegetable stores were happy to disassemble. Baby-carrots liked the buyers: it is more expensive as usual, but very convenient for raw consumption.
