Profile: Beets have been around for thousands of years, but it wasn't until roughly 300 years ago that the beet root we know today was hybridized. Beta vulgaris is commonly consumed as a vegetable because of its earthy yet sweet flavor and high nutritional value. Our organic, non-GMO beet root powder can be used in a variety of ways, including smoothies, juices, and herbal formulations.
Beets had elongated roots like carrots in ancient times, and the globular red beet we eat today was only hybridized around 300 years ago. Beets have the highest sugar content of any vegetable, and they're becoming increasingly popular as a sugar alternative. Beet juice and powder are used to taste and color a range of dishes, including carrot, celery, and other vegetable liquids.
Beets, or at the very least the leaves of the beet, have been used since the dawn of time. At a Dutch excavation site, charred beet roots were discovered amid Neolithic remains. The parent of the present farmed beet, the Sea beet, was most likely domesticated somewhere in the Mediterranean. Since the time of the Romans, both the roots and the leaves have been employed. The sages of the Talmud prescribed "eating beet root, drinking mead, and swimming in the Euphrates" as part of a long and healthy life prescription. Platina reported in his De Honesta (1460) that beet root was beneficial for foul breath, particularly "garlic breath."
Although the leaves had been chewed for centuries, it was not until the early nineteenth century that French chefs realized the root's culinary possibilities.
