Beetroot, Chukandar

Beet-roots and leaves are used in traditional medicine to treat many diseases. The ancient Romans used beet-root for fever and constipation, among other diseases. Both beet greens and Swiss chard are considered high oxalate foods that are implicated in the formation of kidney stones. The leaves and stems of young plants are briefly boiled and eaten as a vegetable. Raw beets are added to the salad. This is the best source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beetroot is also being considered as a promising therapeutic treatment in a range of clinical pathologies associated with oxidative stress and inflammation. Its constituents, most notably the betalain pigments, display potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and chemo-preventive activity in vitro and in vivo.

Beetroot is consist of multiple biologically active phytochemicals including betalains [8] (e.g., betacyanins and betaxanthins), flavonoids, polyphenols, Saponins [8] and inorganic Nitrate (NO3); it is also a rich source of diverse minerals such as potassium, sodium, phosphorous, calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc and manganese [9]. It is commonly consumed in form of supplemental juice, powder, bread, gel, boiled, oven-dried, pickled, pureed or jam-processed across different food cultures [1, 10, 11]. As shown in Table 1, 100?mL of beetroot juice is comprised of 95 Kcal energy, 22.6?g carbohydrates, 0.70?g proteins, 0.16?g total lipids, 0.91?g total dietary fiber and 12?g total sugars. As such, the micro nutritional composition of 100?mL beetroot juice is estimated as 8.8?g sucrose, 0.86?g fructose, and 2.5?g glucose
