Beets are an excellent source of potassium and vitamin A, and good source of Vitamin C, magnesium and riboflavin; they also contain iron, copper, calcium, thiamine, Vitamin B6, folic acid, zinc and niacin.
Beets are said to stimulate the appetite and are easily digested. They are also used to relieve headaches and are believed to combat colds and anemia.
Beets are damaged by ethylene, which is an odorless, harmless gas emitted by summer fruits, apples, avocados, mushrooms and tomatoes. Store in our Onya Reusable Produce Bag and place in the refrigerator in the high-humidity drawer. If the beets arrived with the greens still attached, cut the leaves from the root, and store them separately. The greens will keep for a few days in a plastic bag put in the high-humidity drawer of the refrigerator
Serene Nature House recommends that you set the two drawers in the fridge at a high humidity setting which means that you set the drawers to close off completely from bringing in air. You use these drawers for your greens, cruciferous vegetables, cucumbers, berries, eggplants and herbs. For your other fruits, avocados, mushrooms and bananas you can use the middle or top shelf. This will keep these fruits and vegetables segragated and elongate the life of your produce!
