The loss of electrolytes and amino acids from gamma-irradiated carrot tissues to an aqueous medium was found to be both dose and dose-rate dependent. Calcium was the cation most readily leached, followed by copper, zinc, sodium, phosphorus, boron, iron, aluminum, and manganese. The rate of amino acid loss was extensive at doses above 500 krads. Aspartic acid was the amino acid most readily leached.
