Author(s): Sakhare KS, Sawate AR, Kshirsagar RB and Taur AT

Abstract: The present study was carried out to analyze physical and chemical composition of beetroot (Beta vulgaris L.). The freshly harvested beetroot selected for evaluation of different physicochemical and mineral composition. Results obtained indicated that colour of beetroot was deep reddish in colour, length was 7.06 cm, diameter was 4.03 cm and mass of beetroot was observed to be 178 g. Further, chemical and mineral composition was reported and results showed that moisture content was found to be 85.56 percent, carbohydrate 9.05 percent, Protein 1.41 percent, fat 0.21 percent and betalain content of beetroot was recorded to be 291mg/100g. The other parameters such as acidity and pH of beetroot juice were indicated 0.8 percent and 6.13 respectively. The mineral composition of beetroot showed copper 0.064, manganese 0.22, zinc 0.20 and iron 1.107 mg/100g respectively.
