Important to know! Always wear gloves when peeling. Beet contains betanin, a substance that used to be used for dyeing. So, accordingly, it will dye your hands a deep red. However, since betanin is not very heat-resistant, the red color will fade again if you wash your hands very warmly. However, they might still be a little red then. That’s why red beet is so healthy: Beet is not only quite low in calories. 100 grams of beet contain just 41 kilocalories. Above all, red beet contains many important vitamins and is also a major supplier of nutrients that are only found in a few foods. Among other things, red beet contains: folic acid, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin C and beta-carotene and the minerals potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, phosphate, iron and zinc. And these effects are attributed to red beet: it lowers blood pressure, reduces the risk of heart disease, promotes endurance (professional athletes in particular swear by beet), improves brain function, supports liver functions, helps with chronic and inflammatory diseases and is good for digestion.
