Nutritional values

The earthy-sweet beetroot contains hardly any calories and practically no fat. Anthocyanins provide the beautiful colour - as antioxidants they neutralise free radicals and thus protect our cells.

Cooking the tubers is a bit of work - if you want to save them, take pre-cooked, vacuum-packed or pickled beetroot out of the jar.
