Beet (Beta vulgaris) is a root vegetable. This turnip was first used as a staple food in northern Europe, as it thrives even in winter. In the 16th century, the cultivation of beet really took off. Prominent French chefs roasted the beet as a delicacy. Because of its abundance of nutrients, beet is now considered a superfood. It therefore has its permanent place in vegan cuisine, smoothies and cold-pressed juices. We process them only as organic beet
What active ingredients does beet contain?
Beet is considered a blood purifier and blood builder. This is certainly due to the fact that beet is a valuable source of iron and folate. Both nutrients help form red blood cells and support oxygen transport in the body. Also, beet contains vitamin C, manganese and potassium.
