Wortelpoeder (Daucus carota sativa)
Daucus Carota Sativa
The dehydrated vegetable plumps up when plunged in warm water, spreading its orangey delights.
Where do we get it?
Lush purchases this powder through a distributor. The country of origin may vary depending on stock availability.
What are the benefits?
Although Lush always prioritises fresh, it can sometimes be challenging with preservation as bacteria love water, juices and all things liquid. Using fruits and vegetable powders is great to benefit from the plant’s vitamins and minerals while reducing the risk of spoilage.
Carrots are biennial plants belonging to the Apiaceae family, producing edible taproots of different colours. In the 7th century, a purple variety already existed in Afghanistan and was later introduced to Europe around 1100. It was not until the 16th and 17th centuries that the orange type began to be cultivated in the Netherlands in tribute to the emblematic colour of their royal family.
