Supercarrot to the rescue!
It's a root veggie...it's a tuber...no, it's supercarrot!
That's right--US scientists have apparently engineered a high-calcium carrot that could fortify your bones without fattening up your butt.
Someone eating the new carrot absorbs 41% more calcium than if they ate the old, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences study suggests.
The calcium-charged vegetable still needs to go through many safety trials.
It is not the first time the carrot has been tampered with.
The orange colour we know is the result of Dutch cultivation in the 17th Century, when patriotic growers turned a vegetable which was then purple into the colour of the national flag.
