Description: What’s not to love about our Beetroot Powder?! It’s THE perfect natural colouring agent for bakers, beverage makers, cosmetic suppliers and all things catering (don’t get us started on powerfully pink pasta, pizza dough and beetroot lattes!) This pretty powder has a mildly sweet flavour so it’s perfect for sweet and savoury dishes. Psst…1 teaspoon of beetroot powder is the equivalent of 1 whole fresh beetroot.
Dried Beetroot Powder can be used as a natural colouring to make pink or red coloured pasta, it can also be used to colour French macarons, and also cake batters and biscuit dough. Beetroot powder has a mildly sweet flavour that is not overpowering, and makes an excellent alternative to artificial red food colourings that can cause allergic reactions in sensitive people; it is also an excellent alternative to use for vegans in recipes that call for cochineal. Add to soups, marinades, sauces, salad dressings, ice cream, custards, yoghurt, icing, jam, sweet-n-sour dishes, pasta sauces, in tandoori and tikka dishes to add colour. 1 teaspoon of beetroot powder is the equivalent of 1 whole fresh beetroot.
