the benefits of carrot crisps

15th February 2017 by Jess

After the success of our beetroot crisps we couldn’t wait to try more dried-not-fried crisp alternatives! Using the same dehydration process means these carrot slices have absolutely nothing added - all the natural flavours are preserved, giving it a satisfying crunch.

Our brand new carrot crisps are simply cut and dried. This means no oil is added to them in the crisping process so they’re naturally low in fat.

If you’re keeping a watchful eye on portions, a serving of carrot crisps weighs in at less than 100 calories, making them the perfect snack option to munch on when you need a pick-me-up at your desk - satisfying but not too heavy.

These snackable crisp alternatives contain over a 20% of their weight in fibre, which tallies up to almost a third of your daily recommended fibre intake. Absolutely no salt is added so you won’t get the post crisp eating thirst, and they are high in both vitamins K and C.

We need vitamin K for healthy bones and blood and our bodies need vitamin C for a whole host of different reasons, from: keeping our immune systems working at full throttle to fend off coughs and colds, for healthy skin, gums and teeth, energy and safeguarding our cells at a cellular level to protect them from oxidative stress.

Some facts you might not have known about carrots:

  • Carrots belong to the Umbelliferae family, named after the umbrella-like flower clusters that plants in this family produce.
  • Carrots are related to parsnips, fennel, parsley, anise, caraway, cumin and dill.
  • Orange carrots get their bright orange colour due to their high concentration of the pigment beta-carotene which is also found in pumpkins, apricots and nectarines.

We love the vibrant colour of these dried-not-fried carrot crisps mixed with the punchy flavour of hickory smoked almonds. We think this healthy snacks tastes even better than a packet of barbecue crisps!
