Spotlight….Beetroot

Healthy Fact
Dubbed as a “superfood” by many health experts, beetroots are bursting with important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, potassium and silica. Research has also shown that the daily consumption of beetroot juice may assist in significantly reducing blood pressure. Containing good amounts of soluble fibre, beetroot may help reduce cholesterol levels.

Did You Know?
In 1975, during the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, cosmonauts from the USSR’s Soyuz 19 welcomed the Apollo 18 astronauts. It was a joke among the Apollo crew that the Russians would have a Vodka toast in space. In orbit they had a tube with Vodka written on the side. It was really a Russian soup, called borscht. They had a good sense of humor.
