Carrots pack a lot of nutrition, but are best known for containing a rich supply of beta carotene and for supporting eye health. They are eaten raw or cooked, and can be preserved by canning or freezing. Frozen carrots are often prepared by boiling them in water, but this method allows important nutrients to leach into the water, which is then discarded. It also can decrease the taste. This does not occur when frozen carrots are steamed instead of boiled.
