What is a Beetroot?

Beetroot, often called “beet,” is a root vegetable known for its vibrant red color and sweet, earthy flavor. It belongs to the Beta vulgaris species and is closely related to other vegetables like Swiss chard and sugar beets. The flesh of beetroots is firm and dense, with a texture similar to that of carrots.

Beetroots can be enjoyed raw, roasted, boiled, steamed, or pickled, and they are used in many culinary applications. They can be grated and added to salads, juiced for a refreshing beverage, blended into soups and smoothies, or roasted and served as a side dish.
