Beetroot powder (100% dried beetroot) makes a nutritious addition to Unrefined Cakery's Beetroot Cacao brownies, being rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and nutrients. Beetroot has several unique compounds (phyto-constituents) that provide antioxidant, anti-depressant, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties - it may be particularly beneficial for illnesses characterized by inflammation such as rheumatoid arthritis. In addition, beetroot is a rich source of dietary nitrate which may have important implications for cardiovascular (heart) health. Beetroot really is an impressive functional food!
