Botanically, this tuberous root vegetable belongs to the Amaranthaceae family, in the beta genus. Its scientific name is Beta vulgaris. Swiss chard is another member of the beta genus grown for its edible leaves.

Beets are small herbaceous plants with broad dark-green leaves. Its underground taproot matures in 50-60 days of sowing and weighs about 100 to 150 grams. If not harvested at the right time, it continues growing to more than a pound and may develop surface cracks, woody and fibrous in texture, lose flavor, and become less appetizing.

Many different cultivars like red, orange-yellow and white verities of beet exist. The unique crimson-red color of red beet is due to betalain pigments, such as betanin and betacyanin. Yellow varieties are rich in ß-xanthin pigment. The root and its top tender greens have been in use for human consumption. Chioggia beet or candy cane variety has alternate red and white concentric whorls.


Health benefits of beetroot tuber

  • Garden beet is very low in calories (provide only 45 kcal/100 g), and contain zero cholesterol and a small amount of fat. Its nutrition benefits come particularly from fiber, vitamins, minerals, and unique plant derived anti-oxidants.
  • The root is a rich source of the phytochemical compound, glycine betaine. Betaine has the property of lowering homocysteine levels in the blood. Homocysteine, one of the highly toxic metabolite, promotes platelet clot as well as atherosclerotic plaque formation, which, otherwise, can be harmful to blood vessels. High levels of homocysteine in the blood result in the development of coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke and peripheral vascular diseases.

Selection and storage

In the store, choose fresh, bright, firm textured beets with rich flavor and uniform size. Avoid those with slump looking or soft in consistency, over-mature and large. Whenever possible, go for the organic produce to get maximum health benefits.

In the farmer markets, often the roots with intact top greens put for sale. If you are buying a whole beet plant, then separate its tops from the root sooner since top-greens rob moisture and nutrition from the roots.

Beet greens, just like other greens, should be washed thoroughly under clean running water and rinsed in saline water for about 30 minutes to remove soil, sand, dirt, and any insecticide residues before use.

Top beet greens should be used while they are fresh. Beetroot tuber, however, can be kept in the refrigerator set at high relative humidity for up to ten days.
