Beetroot - fresh

Field grown and freshly pulled, these medium sized beets are for cooking at home. Beets supplied may be of differing sizes and cooking times may need to be adjusted. Do not cut any remaining leaf off as this will cause them to 'bleed' whilst boiling with the result that when cut the flesh may have lost some of its deep red colour.

Fresh Each £0.30
Pack Of 4 £0.80

 

Beetroot - fresh Facts

Related to the sugar beet and also known simply as beet, it is naturally high in sugar and has an earthy, sweet flavour with a hint of smokiness and a velvety smooth texture. High in folates, manganese and surprisingly low in calories (46 per 100gm). It is also a good source of potassium. The red coloured compound, betaine, is not broken down in the body and may temporarily cause a reddish colour to urine and stools. However, research indicates that betaine may protect against liver disease, particularly the build up of fatty deposits in the liver caused by alcohol abuse, protein deficiency, or diabetes. Preliminary research also shows that beetroot juice lowers blood pressure and may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
