Beetroot is very low in calories and contain zero cholesterol. Its nutrition benefits come particularly from fibre, vitamins, minerals, and unique plant derived anti- oxidants.
Originally from Europe, beetroot was first cultivated by the Romans. By the 19th century, it was discovered that it contains one of the highest sugar contents of any vegetable and was then used commercially to extract sucrose from the beet plant.
For years, it's been restricted to the corner of the plate as a forgetful side or mostly dumped in salads. But with its sweet and rustic charm, this root vegetable is enjoying a well-deserved comeback thanks to its health credentials.
