100% Beetroot powder /flour is a great alternative to high carb, heavily processed white flours. Naturally rich in calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium, beet powder also contains nitrates. Dietary nitrate helps improve healthy blood flow.
Beetroot powder also enhances endurance and athletic performance; nitrates can increase the amount of oxygen a person uses while engaged in heavy exercise. As beetroot takes longer to digest because of its content of dietary fiber , it even curbs hunger pangs effectively.
