The Black carrot plays an important role in human nutrition, as it comprises a variety of health promoting components (Suzme, Boyacioglu, Toydemir, & Capanoglu, 2014).In addition to the presence of known antioxidants such as vitamins C and E, black carrots have also attracted attention due to the presence of phenolic compounds, which contribute significantly to the antioxidant capacity (Algarra et al., 2014). Besides anthocyanins as the major phenolic compounds, it has been shown that black carrot also contains significant amounts of phenolic acids, including hydroxycinnamates and caffeic acid (Kammerer, Carle, & Schieber, 2004).
