Beets provide a rich source of carbohydrates and protein, and have high levels of important vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. They are a great source of potassium, magnesium, folic acid, iron, zinc, calcium, phosphorus, sodium, niacin, biotin, betanin and beta-carotene. They also contain the important vitamins – A, B6 and C – plus, powerful antioxidants and soluble fiber.
