Beetroots, commonly known as beets, are a common staple food in many countries. Known for their earthy flavour and aroma, they are used in several recipes worldwide.
In addition to bringing a pop of colour to the plate, beetroots also offer numerous health benefits. They are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds that help treat and prevent several diseases.
What’s more, they’re even used as an ingredient in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicinal systems (1).
