So, what is betanina?

Betanina is a natural red pigment found in beetroots. It is commonly used as a food colorant due to its vibrant and stable color. Betanina is water-soluble and can be easily extracted from the root of the beet plant. It has been shown to have antioxidant properties and may offer potential health benefits, such as reducing inflammation and improving heart health. Betanina is a popular ingredient in a variety of foods, including soups, sauces, and beverages, and is a great way to add natural color to your dishes without the use of synthetic dyes.
