Beetroot is a type of root. Due to its sweet taste, it can be eaten raw. The leaves of the beetroot are also edible and can be eaten boiled or steamed. Beetroot has a rich purple colour but they are also grown white or golden.

Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and potassium.

Beetroot is used for disorders of the liver as they help to stimulate the liver’s detoxification processes. They help in maintaining the blood count in the body. They are good for haemoglobin. As beetroot is rich in fibre, it helps in preventing constipation. It also helps in lowering cholesterol levels. Beetroot juice is considered good for maintaining blood pressure levels in the body.

So try to use beetroot as much as possible. Beet roots can be used in salads, soups, cakes, desserts or raitas.
