Nutritional values

Whether it's juice, crystals or powder, the antioxidants it contains and the nitrate from Beet can lower blood pressure. In addition, the secondary plant substance betaine strengthens the heart and slows down inflammation.

If you like, you can also make carrot bagels from the beet bagels: To do this, simply replace the beet juice with the same amount of carrot juice and replace the beet crystals with 1 tsp of turmeric powder. By the way, if you ever have leftover bagels, you can freeze them well and then briefly bake them up on the toaster after defrosting.
