Is it better to eat carrots raw rather than cooked?

I don't like mushy carrots.

Yes it is better to eat raw carrots.Mainly carrot contains calcium, potassium, vitamin A, B and C. After cooking all these components may get lost or destroyed.

Yeah you know what you are in luck. It is way better to eat any type of vegetable raw especially carrots. Carrots are good raw and when you steam them, they lose nutrients.

The nutrition you receive from a raw carrot is more then cooked or steamed. So go ahead and crunch away on the raw variety.

Supposedly, eating raw veggies replenishes the enzymes in your stomach and helps with digestion; however, I have also heard that raw veggies are indigestible for some people and it is better just to steam them slightly to make them easier to digest. Both beat the boiling to death that used to be standard veggie cooking.
