Q: I just made a carrot cake and the carrots turned green. What caused it, and is it safe to eat? A: The reason for this discoloration is the recipe has too much baking soda or the soda was not mixed in evenly. The color pigments in these foods are sensitive to pH changes. When these acidic foods are mixed into an alkaline batter, the color change occurs This can also happen with sunflower seeds and walnuts may turn blue. While this may not look pretty, the product is still edible.
