Raw Carrot vs. Cooked carrot, which is more nutritious?

Ever wondered which is more nutritious? Well, a study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry might be able to help you solve the puzzle.

Although the general assumption is that raw carrots are more nutritious, the study notes that boiling or steaming tends to preserve the antioxidant, carotenoid in carrots. And this means that they are easily absorbed by our body when they are cooked.

These carotenoids like beta-carotene are important for our body and help us in maintaining a healthy immune system and also helps improve our vision.
