Just Carrots was developed by AIM to meet the needs of those who believe
in the benefits of fresh carrot juice but whose lifestyle is not always
conducive to juicing. The goal was to produce a product that provides the
nutritional equal to fresh carrot juice, a goal we believe was
The following chart compares the most recent analyses of Just Carrots,
fresh carrot juice, and one 7.5-inch raw carrot done by the three
independent laboratories indicated above the columns. A comparison of the
nutrient values reveals that a single 2-tablespoon serving of Just Carrots
has a better nutritional profile than either of the other two.

ENZYMES. It is more than just nutrients that provide
the benefits of carrot juice, it is also the live enzymes. Enzymes are very
difficult to test and there is no test available for commercial use that
determines all of the enzymes specific to carrots. However, through a
qualitative technique known as the protein coagulation test, we believe that
Just Carrots is a "live" food. In this test Just Carrots is mixed in a glass
of fresh boiling water. Any live proteins in this mixture, including enzymes,
will clump and drop to the bottom of the glass. During processing if a product
has been heated above the temperature that deactivates enzymes, the product
will not clump, but will dissolve into the solution. Think of a vegetable
bouillon cube; when you drop it into hot water, it dissolves into a solution
because it has been processed and cooked previously.
Home Enzyme Tests: I performed this simple test (described above) on
BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets. All 3 powders clumped up with the
clump ending up at the bottom of the glass. If you try this test, beware that
(depending on the water temperature) both the Just Carrots and Redibeets will
cause the water to overflow in a mostly full glass making a mess on the
counter top. I also heated BarleyLife and Just Carrots in an oven until the
temperature of the powder was at 145 degrees F and in a second test to 190
degrees F. Using the protein coagulation test the powders heated to 145 deg F
showed a small amount of damage. The 190 deg heated powders were coagulated
coming out of the oven. In conclusion this test showed clearly that each of
the BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets products are enzymatically active.
It also showed me that the enzymes are not quickly destroyed.
We should emphasize that the power lies in the nutritional synergy provided by
carrot juice and not just in the raw nutritional facts.
Q: Is the Just Carrots processing temperature high enough to damage the
ANS: No. In fact the temperature is actually lower than the BarleyLife
Q: Are there fewer enzymes in Just Carrots?
ANS: No, we do not believe so. Some limited testing showed more enzymes in
Just Carrots than in fresh carrot juice.
Q: Why isn't the process that is used for BarleyLife also used for Just
ANS: Carrot juice is different and the BarleyLife process doesn't work well
for carrot juice. The BarleyLife process would require that 60% of the carrot
powder product be maltodextrin.
Q: Just Carrots doesn't taste the same as fresh carrot juice, why not?
ANS: A choice had to be made between best taste and highest overall quality.
AIM chose the highest quality. Although Just Carrots doesn't taste just like
fresh carrot juice, the taste is quite acceptable to us. We mix it daily with
BarleyLife and Redibeets and drink them all together.
JUICERS: Considering the fact that most juicers (around 80%) end up in a
closet within 6 months of purchase, Just Carrots offers an excellent way of
getting the benefits of fresh carrot juice without the hassle of juicing
