Nature’s Root Mixed Beet Sprouting Seeds will make a colourful addition to any kitchen garden. Pure, organic, and gluten-free, they grow into the most delicious microgreens with a slightly sweet flavour similar to that of raw beetroot. Easy to grow at home in a seed tray or sprouter, beetroot seeds sprout at leisure (they cannot be rushed) and provide nutritious shoots in 11 – 21 days.
The history of beetroot is thought to date back to 300 B.C. when the ancient Greeks first cultivated it for its nutritious leaves. In the middle ages, beetroot was used to treat blood conditions and digestive complaints, and by the 18th century, it became internationally recognised as the vegetable we know and love today.
More recently, beetroot microgreens have acquired the title of a ‘superfood’ thanks to their impressive nutritional profile and health-boosting benefits. Packed with vitamins and minerals, yet low in fat and calories, they are the perfect dietary supplement for the whole family, and far more nutritious than raw beetroot.
Mixed beet microgreens are colourful and full of flavour. You can add them to salads and sandwiches as a healthy alternative to lettuce, blitz them into pre-workout smoothies, or serve them with fish and meat dishes as a garnish.
Many athletes eat beetroot sprouts and microgreens to improve physical performance. They are low in calories, they contain a moderate amount of fibre and protein, and they are a good source of nitrates, a signalling molecule thought to improve muscle efficiency, endurance, and exercise performance.
Our Mix Beet Sprouting Seeds are supplied in resealable Kraft pouches and suitable for those following vegetarian and vegan diets.
