Looking for a natural pink-red food coloring or mild vegetable flavor? Just “beet” it. Beet powder can add color to frostings, baked goods, juice and vegetable drinks. Add a little more to pasta and rice for a mild beet flavor. Since beet powder comes directly from beets, which contain the highest sugar level of all vegetables, you can use it instead of processed sugar. It’s natural and from a vegetable, so it also contains a number of health benefits. There’s no “beet”-ing around the bush on this one, for fabulous color and great taste, grab some beet powder today.
Mix beet powder into flour before adding wet ingredients. Use 1/2 ounce for every pound of flour.
