Nutrition Science Highlights for WFPB Beetroot Soup Recipe

  1. Beetroot Phytonutrients: Have you noticed pink pee the day after you eat a lot of beetroot? That is all the phytonutrients of beetroot making their way out of your body after having worked their magic. Beetroot is super versatile vegetables, and even amplifies athletic performance by enhancing the body's ability to use oxygen and create energy!
  2. Why miso paste? Miso paste is fermented & salted soya bean paste. Maximum recommended salt intake is 3 grams per day per person. In addition to helping us restrict salt intake, replacing salt with miso paste also helps by neutralising the negative effects of salt by soya phytonutrients. You can easily make fresh miso paste at home by mixing 100 grams of cooked soya paste with 10 grams of salt, or 10 tablespoons of cooked soya paste with 1 tablespoon of salt. If making at home, ensure to use immediately, or freeze in batches to use later. Or, simply use 3.75 grams of salt or less per day per person and add 18 to 20 grams (dry weight) of soya beans in any dishes, spread through the day!
