While it’s a good idea to keep your chlorine exposure to a minimum, these mini carrots are not a significant source of it and you’d have to give up a lot of other veggies too. If you really want to be on the safe side, some organic farmers use Citrox as a completely non-toxic alternative. The only downside to these carrots vs. regular carrots is that they have slightly fewer nutrients (because you’re not getting the entire vegetable) and that some growers are breeding varieties with a slightly higher sugar content. The bottom line is that they are still vegetables so they’re always much healthier than fatty, sugary processed snacks.
