Origins of Beetroot
Beetroot was first cultivated by the Romans. During the 19th century, women used the bright red colouring (betalain) as a cheek and lip stain. Today, Beetroot is a common garden and allotment vegetable, featuring characteristic large leaves and stalks. This nutrient-rich root vegetable grows best during spring and fall but global practices have given us access to the vegetable year-round - even the Romans managed to grow the crop during the summer months. Beetroot contains geosmin, a substance which provides the fresh soil scent in a garden following a spring rain. This is what gives Beetroot its earthy flavour. Since humans are quite sensitive to geosmin, we either love it or hate it.
Our Beetroot extract is taken from the Beta vulgaris plant, a member of the Amaranthaceae family. Other familiar crops in this family include spinach and quinoa. Beetroot achieved its name from the generic term beta which stems from bettl, a Celtic word for red.
