Beetroot powder is a great source of potassium, which help regulate the body’s fluids and prevent water retention, a common source of unnecessary extra weight.
The dietary fiber found in beetroot naturally helps the body feel fuller for longer. So make sure you include it in your food prep if you’re struggling to crack a cravings cycle.
Use a few teaspoons of the powder in curries, sauces, smoothies, juices, parantha mixes, tortillas, pancakes, pasta dough, salad dressings, etc – one teaspoon of the powder is equivalent to one average sized beet.
Beetroot powder can also be used as an alternative food coloring in cakes and cupcakes to make them a bright red velvet color.
A 2009 study by Exeter University found that supplementation with beetroot juice enhanced stamina, and extended time to exhaustion in high intensity exercise.
