Nutritional values

Carrots are the front-runners among the vegetables that supply provitamin A. Our eyes benefit most of all, as vitamin A is essential for vision, especially in the dark. It is also important for the skin, mucous membranes and hair as well as for bone development and reproduction.

The dish also tastes delicious with wholemeal pasta, which provides a plus of intestine-healthy fibre, iron, magnesium and B vitamins - for more power and strong nerves.
