Beetroot is a vegetable that some consider quirky or fancy, but for others – especially in Eastern European cuisine – it’s an everyday, lovely, seasonal addition to salads, stews and other dishes. But let’s be honest, a good beetroot can be much more than that! It has a unique, strong flavour and a beautiful texture that can be added to a wide variety of dishes. Mashed, shredded, cut into discs, boiled, fried, baked… we would be here all day, listing just the possibilities of what to do with this lovely vegetable. But, to be honest, a lot of people love beetroots for their amazing nutritional content.
Just 100 grams of them provide you with 27% of the recommended daily value of vitamin B9, also known as folate. This vital chemical compound is extremely important for keeping your body healthy, especially in terms of cardiovascular conditions and reducing high blood pressure. On top of that, it has tons of manganese, which boosts the metabolism of glucose and carbohydrates, as well as plays a big part in bone formation and inflammation reduction. A good beetroot is only available in the autumn, but our freeze-dried beetroot powder allows you to enjoy all of the benefits without the need to hunt them down in that limited time window! With flavour, fragrance and natural vivid colour intact, this is an amazing product to add to your pantry and whip it out next time you want to punch up your smoothies or enjoy a hearty beetroot soup!
What is freeze-drying process?
Freeze-dried product is dried at reduced pressure so very low temperatures can be used. As a result, the product (e.g. fruit, vegetable or herb) keeps flavour profile and nutrient values very similar to the fresh product. The process also reduces the moisture content almost to zero so freeze-dried fruit works very well in cooking, confectionery, chocolate, fudge, icings, frosting, baked goods and as decorations and snacks.
Why should I choose freeze-dried products?
When using freeze-drying, there is no need to use any chemicals or preservatives, and virtually 100% of biologically valuable substances of products are saved. For example, if drying the usual way the remaining amount of vitamin C is only about 40% when freezing is up to 85%, when freeze-drying – 98%. Another advantage of freeze-drying – the raw material retains its original shape, and the texture becomes specific, crispy and fluffy.
For example, a freeze-dried strawberry is a crispy berry, its size, colour and chemical composition does not change. It is 10 times lighter, however, as there is no water in freeze-dried strawberry while the raw and fresh one usually contains about 90% water. If strawberry is submerged in water it re-hydrates and becomes like fresh unfrozen strawberry. For years freeze-drying was used for space food and pharmaceuticals. But we bring it to people now to discover new, smarter, and fully nutritious food they love <3 And what is important, you can eat it all year round!
Moreover, freeze-dried products do not contain sulphur.
