Antler FarmsŪ Organic Beet Root is grown outdoors, without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or artificial fertilizers.

We have a proven system for producing the highest quality organic beet root through careful management of weeds and pests through a variety of processes. These processes include crop rotation, management of soil nutrients, non-chemical weeding and approved pest control practices. Every batch of beet root is tested for ensure there is no E. coli, salmonella, yeast, mold and other harmful bacteria. Additional, we do random tests for heavy metals.

Our beet root is grown in the rich, fertile soil of New Zealand’s Canterbury Plains. Our soil is routinely tested each year before use to ensure it meets certified organic standards. On our sustainably managed and family owned farms, our beet root is grown in natural sunlight over the course of 50-70 days.

Our beet root is harvested precisely when its nutrients are at their peak concentration to provide the highest quality product with maximum nutritional content.

Once harvested, our beet root is washed and freeze dried. Cold processing is important as high temperatures decrease the bioavailability of dietary nitrate in beets. Freeze dried beet root delivers more nutrients, including dietary nitrate, than beets subjected to heat. After freeze drying is completed, our beet roots is milled into a powder, and packed for shipping.

HOW DO NITRATES IN BEETS DIFFER FROM NITRATES IN MEATS?

When we hear about nitrates, it is usually in a negative light. It is commonly believed that nitrates are unhealthy and should be avoided. However, that is an incomplete understanding. Nitrates are found naturally in fruits, vegetables and grains. They are an essential plant nutrient found in soil that is taken in by all plants and used as a primary nitrogen source. In it of themselves, nitrates are not bad for you.

However, when nitrates are exposed to high heat, in the presence of amino acids, they can turn into chemical compounds called nitrosamines. Nitrosamines are toxic. Most are strong carcinogens, which increase the risk of serious diseases like cancer signicantly. So nitrates, when added to cured meats such as salami, bacon and hot dogs as a color preservative, becomes a serious health risk.

Even though plants also contain nitrates/nitrites, they are rarely exposed to such high heat and thus, do not form nitrosamines. Therefore the positive health benefits due to the natural nitrates in vegetables such as beets are completely different than the harmful effects of the added nitrates in meats.
