What beet useful for human?

Carefully considering the chemical composition of sugar beet in the first place I saw the amount of carbs, because beet is a vegetable, and all the vegetables are often just a source of carbohydrates, fiber source. I was interested in, it is suitable for food dieters or not. But here with beets everything turned out differently. In the composition of carbohydrates predominate disaccharides, namely sucrose. Almost all of the carbohydrate presented sucrose. After these data, I can tell you that losing weight people should refrain from beet and pay attention to other fruits or vegetables. And everyone else who has problems with fat not concern you, it may have either a single dish or as an addition to one of the meals if you like.

Look at the chemical composition of beet closer.

If all carbohydrates in beet are not so good, then that's part of the vitamins and minerals really interesting. All the major vitamins are present, but even some of the minerals are allocated, especially trace elements: iron and manganese. Let course is not even half the daily requirement of both trace element, but they are in quantitative yield. If you are going to include in your diet on a particular day, beets, together with other products, such as red meat, buckwheat, can fill the body with iron.

For the sake of self-interest, I decided to take and weigh 1 beet, it weighs about 250 grams. It is the fruit of medium size. For example, if you make the vinaigrette, cooking pots, used 2 pieces, taken apart beets potatoes, carrots, onions, pickled cucumbers, green peas, and it's all watered oil. All components of course I did not weigh, but what I can tell if it's all mixed, you get a really interesting dish on the composition of vitamins and minerals.
