It is an excellent source of beta carotene, a compound that can function as an antioxidant and can also be converted by the body into vitamin A. deficiency of vitamin A does cause night blindness, an inability of the eyes to adjust to dim lighting or darkness. Vitamin A combines with therotein opsin in the retina’s rod cells to form rhodopsin which is needed for bright vision. Eating one carrot every few days provides enough vitamin A to prevent or overcome night blindness. An interesting fact is cooking actually increases carrots nutritional value because it breaks down the tough cellular walls that encase the beta carotene. Cooked and purees carrots are an ideal beginner food as they are naturally sweet and high in nutrients.
