Eat Your Beets & Drink them too!

Did you know that beets are a Super food? In an article for WebMD, nutritionist Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, LD touts the benefits – “Most lists of ‘super foods’ don’t include beetroot juice, but maybe they should.”

Research has shown that this ruby red or golden colored root is dense in nutrients and high in antioxidants. The pigments that give beets their rich colors are called betalains and research has shown they are beneficial. Beets are known to improve blood flow and help lower blood pressure.

You can gain all of the nutrients by boiling, roasting, pickling or eating a beet raw. I think beets are delicious, sliced with some lettuce greens, a sprinkling of goat cheese and walnuts in a salad. However, now all you need to gain all the nutrients is to pop open a glass bottle of Beetology.

I recently received a variety box of five cold-pressed bottles. Each was a different flavor that included Beet + Lemon + Ginger, Beet + Veggie, Beet + Tropical Fruit, Beet + Berry, and Beet + Cherry.  

The first thing I noticed while taking my first sip is that this vegetable offers a pleasant sweetness with a clean, healthy and slightly earthy flavor. It’s Non-GMO, Certified Organic, Certified Fair Trade, Kosher, All Natural, and Non Dairy.

According to Charles Herzog, Chief Beetologist and VP of New Business Development at Kayco, “Beetology is out to prove just how sweet and tasty this misunderstood root vegetable is. We farm the finest beets with the perfect level of sweetness (brix) because we think that beet juice should be both nutritious and delicious.”

Launched in April, 2017, each 8.45 ounce bottle of Beetology is available at health food stores, specialty stores, grocery stores, and kosher food markets. A bottle retails for around $3.99 and can be found in the refrigerated section.
