Beetroot red: colourful and healthy

beetroot red is a frequently used colouring agent in kitchens of both professional and amateur chefs. Not so strange, because apart from giving a beautiful colour to various foodstuffs, it is also full of health-promoting properties. The colour is extracted from the beet root. Under number E-162, beetroot red is permitted as a colour for commercial use. At Natural Spices you can buy beetroot red online in a quantity of 1.28 kilos. After buying this colour, you can literally add colour in your kitchen and add a special colour to various foods.

A little more about the beetroot

Beetroot red is obtained from the red beetroot, a vegetable that has been appreciated more and more recently. Red beetroots contain a lot of nutrients, including vitamin C and iron. Vitamin C also ensures that the iron can be absorbed extra well. The vegetables ensure that the blood pressure can be lowered temporarily. Beetroot red gets its red colour from the presence of betaine and betanine. Both are substances with a protective effect. Research has shown that they have an anti-inflammatory effect. Beetroot red is an extract of betaine and betanine. It can therefore be said that beetroot red is very healthy. As well as having an anti-inflammatory effect, it also fights free radicals and helps the body detoxify.

How do you use beetroot red?

Since beetroot red is an extract, it is not as strong as the original liquids. The colouring from red beetroot is water-soluble, but not very stable. Under the influence of light, heat and oxygen, it can lose most of its properties. For this reason, the additive is mainly used in frozen products, but also in short-life products. Think of ice cream and dairy products, but also of the well-known tomato with its shiny pink layer.
