There is a growing worldwide demand for healthy foods, such as fruit and vegetables, including beetroot (Beta vulgaris L. ssp. esculenta convar. crassa provar. rubra), with its extremely valuable content. During the measurements (amino acids, betanin and vulgaxanthin, polyphenol content, antioxidant capacity), the peel and flesh of commercially available spherical and oblong morphology beets as well as 4 organic beetroot juices of different origins (some with additional components) were examined. Based on the results, it was established that carrot root and biojuices have different amino acid compositions. It has been proven that the peel of beets is extremely rich in valuable components, which is also worth considering when consuming. When examining beetroot juices, added supplements, e.g. lemon juice, have an influencing effect on the measured parameters.
