Beetroot powder is a specialist product and a natural red food colouring. It has a slightly sweet taste and it is an ideal substitute for artificial red colours that can cause allergic reactions in some people. Use it in any dish that you want to add a bit of red to. A little goes a long way.
Add to Tandoori and Butter Chicken recipes for extra red colour, use in Chinese sweet & sour dishes and use to colour fresh home-made pasta.
It is purely freeze dried beetroot ground to a fine powder and contains all the nutritional aspects of beetroot ( 1 heaped teaspoon of powder contains around the same nutritional content as one medium sized beetroot ) so it is often used, not just for colouring, but to add extra flavour and nutritional content to dishes like Borscht.
The powder is often added to smoothies and milkshakes as well as soups for its nutritional and mineral content.

History of Beetroot:-
Beetroot has been eaten for thousands of years with examples from ancient cultures although interestingly the ancient civilizations that were familiar with it would not recognise the root as we know it today which is an entirely hybridized plant since the 17th Centuy. The ancients tended to eat the leaves and the plant once had a deep tap bland coloured root and looked more like a parsnip.
The root as a vegetable was only popularised by French chefs in the 19th Century.
