More About Yellow Beets:

We have not seen yellow beets on sale in any regular supermarket, but have seen them occasionally at health food stores and some farm markets. We found references on the internet that state that this variety dates back to the 1820s or before, and that they are sweet tasting and won’t bleed like red beets. We enjoy eating them raw or cooked. The greens are also good to eat. Most of the other information on the internet concerned recipes, and we could not find any in-depth specific nutritional for yellow beets, however, we did find the following information for one cup of cooked beets on Health Castle:

  • Calories: 58
  • Protein: 2 g
  • Carb: 13 g
  • Fiber 3 g
  • Fat: 0
  • Potassium: 442 mg

Nutritionally, the golden beet is quite similar to that of red beets. They have similar carbohydrate, fat and protein content and both are equally packed with potassium, a blood pressure-lowering mineral. But there are also some differences beyond basic nutrition. For starters, golden beets are sweeter in taste, and less earthy in flavor. For those who do not like the taste of red beets, there’s a good chance that they may enjoy golden beets. The main nutritional difference between the two are the pigments.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
