Beetroot nutrition

Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value; especially the greens, which are rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and potassium. The greens should not be overlooked; they can be cooked up and enjoyed in the same way as spinach.

Beetroot powder and Usage

Beet powder is made from ripe red beets that are cooked, peeled, sliced, dried and then ground.   It is extremely rich in iron, potassium, niacin, Vitamins A & C and many other minerals.   It has a mild beet flavor.
        Used as a natural colorant, beet powder works well in frostings, cookies, pastas, cakes, candies, sauces and lots of other foods.  You can create a light pink to a deep red color by varying the quantity of powder you use. 
        Beet powder, like other vegetable and fruit powders, re-hydrates almost instantly in hot or boiling water.   One pound of beet powder will re-hydrate to 5 pounds, the equivalent of 8-9 pounds of fresh, raw beets.   Use 1/3 cup water to 2 T of beet powder.
