Its true… I gave my baby carrots and the palms of his hands turned orange. I think I’d been giving it to him every day for a few weeks. It went away as soon as I decreased it… not harmful at all. You’d have to eat a few a day I guess, for several weeks.

Answer #4

What do carrots contain? Beta-carotene. When significant amounts of beta-carotene are consumed, it leads to carotenosis - yellowing of the skin. While carotenosis is harmless, it’s difficult to say how many carrots you need to eat before developing it - it all depends on your body’s ability to burn fats, which is where a lot of the carotenoids are stored, however, it’s not likely that a serving of carrots per day will cause it … perhaps if you ate them for all three daily meals.
