Beet Root Powder
- Related to the ancient grain amaranth.
- Highest sugar content of all the vegetables, beetroot powder is becoming increasingly popular as a sweetening substitute.
- Pairs well with cacao. Beetroot powder has a slightly sweet, earthy taste. One teaspoon of beetroot powder provides the nutrition in one beet.
- Athletes such as long-distance runners have been known to use beetroot to increase performance and endurance.
- High in fiber (about 10% by weight) and contain many vitamins and minerals such as: betaine, alanine, allantoin, arginine, beta-carotene, calcium, GABA, glycine, histidine, magnesium, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), phosphorous, potassium, selenium, thiamine (vitamin B1), tryptophan, tyrosine, vitamin C, zinc, and small amounts of zirconium.
