I love beets and have been eating more, but I worry about the sugar content, there’s no mention of that here.

Beets are powerhouses of nutrients. There is no question that you would probably want to consider incorporating beets into your diet. They have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxifying properties that are essential to building a healthy body and brain. The concentration of betalains (what gives beets their dark red color) in beets is unique. Betalains are ‘dietary cationized antioxidants’ – antioxidants are essential to stopping oxidative processes that are associated with many degenerative diseases. There is no question – you can’t beat beets.
Steaming your roots? The difference between 15 and 25 minutes can have repercussions on the betalain count. Be kind to your beets – although they look like a hardy root, they should be handled with love, and cooked minimally to maintain the nutrients packed into them.
