Carrot is a root vegetable, usually orange in colour, though purple, red, white, and yellow varieties exist. It has a crisp texture when fresh. The most commonly eaten part of a carrot is a taproot, although the greens portion is sometimes eaten as well. It is a domesticated form of the wild carrot Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. The domestic carrot has been selectively bred for its greatly enlarged and more palatable, less woody-textured edible taproot.
Spray dried carrot powder is widely used in various confectioneries, bakery products, dairy products for drinks, beverages etc. Its rich colour and flavour gives the necessary goodness to the food products. It is also widely used in pharmaceutical and baby food products.
