Beetroot is one of the healthiest veggies out there and whilst it has been favoured for its nutritional value since the Middle Ages, it has only recently reached superfood heights due to its popularity amongst celebrity chefs, fitness gurus and dieticians. And who can blame them for pushing the healthy benefits of beet?
A root vegetable and one of the many varieties of the genus Beta vulgaris, beetroot is an exceptional source of nutrients, including folic acid, fibre, manganese and potassium. Another of the multiple beetroot benefits is that the bulbous purple vegetable is low in sodium and fat.
Why is Beetroot a superfood?
