FRESH AND FROZEN

Shredded carrot ranges from light to bright. It is packaged to maintain moisture, crispness, flavor and aroma. The pack date and expiration date can be found on the front of each bag, as well as a lot number that can be used to verify traceability of the product.

How much is a cup of carrots?

1 large carrot = 4 oz / 125 g = 1 cup grated.
1 pound carrots = 450g = 1 average bunch = 6 – 8 medium or 4 very large = 3 cups chopped = 2 1/2 cups grated = 1 1/3 cups cooked and mashed.
10 pounds (4.5 kg) carrots, peeled, sliced and canned (aka bottled) yields approximately 15 x 1 US pint (500 ml) jars.

How many ounces are in one carrot?

1 rib celery = 2 ounces = 1/2 cup dice.
1 small carrot 2 ounces = 1/3 cup dice.
1 medium carrot = 3 ounces = 1/2 cup dice.
1 large carrot = 4 ounces = 3/4 cup dice.

How long can you keep grated carrots in the fridge?

According to the website StillTasty, fresh, raw whole or cut up carrots will last 2 to 3 weeks in the fridge. I would think that it would be a shorter time (1 week) for shredded carrots. I’d store them in a container with a tight sealing lid, or in a plastic bag with the air squeezed out.

How long do you cook shredded carrots?

Add carrots and cook, stirring constantly, until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Stir the juice mixture and add to the carrots along with butter and salt. Cover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts and the carrots are tender, 5 to 6 minutes.

STORAGE.

Shredded carrot should be refrigerated. Each package has been designed to keep its ingredients fresh. Keep away from vegetables and fruits that produce ethylene to prevent ripening. We recommend saving any leftover vegetables in your refrigerator, with as little air as possible in the original bag.
  • Optimal storage temperature: 34°F to 40°F
  • Humidity: 95 to 100%
  • Does not produce ethylene, but is sensitive to ethylene exposure.
