Assessment on Viability of Carrot Rice Noodles
Carrot is a root vegetable that is usually orange in color, although purple, black, red, white, and yellow cultivars exist. Carrots are a domesticated form of wild carrot. This plant probably originated in Persia and was originally cultivated for its leaves and seeds. Although the stems can be eaten as well, the most commonly eaten part of a carrot is the taproot. The roots contain high quantities of alpha and beta carotene and are a good source of vitamins K and B6. Rice is a monocot and normally grown as an annual plant, although it can survive in tropical areas as a perennial plant and can produce a ratoon crop for up to 30 years. Although the parent species of carrot are native to Asia and certain parts of Africa, centuries of trade and exportation have their commonplace in many cultures worldwide.
