Made from the red, fleshy root portion of the beet plant after the root hairs and green tops have been removed. One pound of beet powder re-hydrated is approximately equal to 9 pounds of fresh, unprepared beets. Beet powder is popular in traditional Flemish and Slav cooking, but also works well for adding color, flavor and a nutrient boost to a variety of domestic fare. Our organic bulk beet powder is kosher certified and non-irradiated.
