Versatile 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. Heirloom Beetroot flour is made by cutting the whole beetroot and drying it. The dry beetroot is then milled into this fine flour/powder that has excellent cooking and baking applications. No sweeteners, No preservatives, No added sugar.
Can be used savory or sweet. Beetroot flour can be used to make bread, pasta, cakes, waffles, pies, and other baked goods. It can even be used in dessert crusts, crumbles, smoothies, protein bars, and energy balls. Normally 1 cup of flour can be substituted entirely with beetroot flour but note that it will depend on the recipe and the end product you are making too. Or you can reduce the amount of wheat flour used by replacing 1 cup of white flour with 1/4 cup of beetroot flour, plus any suitable grain-free flour for grain-free baking.

Price for quality Our products are not mass-produced in vast industrialised factories. So, we do not enjoy the economies of scale that supermarket brands do. We pay the millers and farmers a fair price. Batch-crafted specially for New Zealand. Kokonati & Heirloom products are made with multigenerational expertise and knowledge to be the best quality they can be. Easily justifying the premium price for the premium quality you get.
Loyalty Just as we are fiercely loyal to the millers and families we work with, we also want to reward you, for your loyalty.

Remember to sign up for the reward points (the tab on the far mid-right edge of this screen).
Packaging and recycling 450g. Dispose of the soft plastic bag in the supermarket collection bin. The reason we use a clear front and aluminum-backing bag for fruit flour is so you can see the product before you buy it while product potency is preserved without exposure to air or moisture.
