Ab Havij = Carrot Juice

Carrot juice is juice produced from carrots, often consumed as a health drink. Carrot juice has a particularly high content of β-carotene, a source of Vitamin A, but is also high in B complex vitamins like folic acid, and many minerals including calcium, copper, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. A pound (454 g) of carrots will yield about a cup (236 ml, US, or 284 ml, Imperial) of juice, which is a low yield compared to fruits like apples and oranges. However, carrot pulp is very tough; the main difficulty in juicing carrots is in separating the pulp from the juice.
Carrot juice has a uniquely sweet flavour of concentrated carrots. Unlike many juices it is opaque.
Carrot juice, like many products high in beta-carotene may cause temporary carotenoderma, a benign skin condition resulting in an orange hue to the skin. Drinking more than 3 cups of carrot juice in a 24-hour period, over a prolonged period of time may be enough to cause the condition.
