ORAC Value:
μ mol TE/100g.

The antioxidant value of Baby Carrots, Raw described in ORAC units is: 436 μ mol TE/100g.

As is the case with many vegetables, the skins are one of their most concentrated sources of nutrients. This is one reason why processed baby carrots contain less antioxidants than the whole carrot, an amount about 37% lower. But since the vast majority of people peel their carrots anyway, it's not really a fair comparison.
