Can you juice carrot tops? This is a good question that often comes up for many people when they start juicing. There is not a black and white answer but I will give you the facts. Carrot tops (also called carrot greens or carrot leaves) are edible but they contain substances that are mildly toxic to us which is the reason that a lot of people don’t eat them or juice them. However there are people who add the leaves to salads or juice them and suffer no adverse effects.
So why would people eat carrot tops if they are mildly toxic? Another good question and the answer is that carrot tops are extremely nutritious. Some sources say that the carrot tops are even more nutritious than the actual carrot. So one thing is for sure if you, if you do juice them it will greatly enhance the health benefits of your carrot juice recipes. However, I will leave the choice to you.
