Nutritional Benefits: 

Serious flavor, serious nutrients

Beets are an excellent source of folate and a good source of manganese, which plays a role in bone health, blood sugar regulation and fat and carbohydrate digestion.

Beets are a great choice for women who are pregnant or are trying to become pregnant, as they provide 22% of the Daily Value for folate — an essential nutrient needed in higher amounts during pregnancy.

Beets are completely edible from leaf to root. Their vibrant color is a good visual cue that beets are packed with health-promoting and protecting antioxidants. Beets are the primary vegetable source of a class of antioxidants called betalains. Emerging research links betalains to a number of potential health benefits.
 

Why choose organic beets?

Beets are root vegetables that grow beneath the soil, so the quality and health of the soil is an integral part of the quality of the beets. Choosing organic beets ensures that they’ve been grown in healthy soil that’s free of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.

At Earthbound Farm, we raise our organic produce using farming methods that regenerate the soil and protect the health of the land and the people who work on it. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic beets taste better, too!
