Abstract

Athletes consume dietary supplements to enhance their training capacity and performance. Beetroot (Beta vulgaris) is a vegetable that is widely used as a dietary supplement for athletes. Beetroot contains bioactive components such as betalains, vitamin C, polyphenols, flavonoids, and saponins. Its powder form is preferable because it is easier to consume and has a longer shelf life. This study aims to compare organoleptic tests of beetroot powder, which include tastes, and color. Corn sugar is added to the beetroot powder with different composition of 5%, 10%, and 15%. Organoleptic tests were measured by the hedonic scale method. The results from the Kruskal Wallis test showed that there was a significant difference between groups (p<0.05). Beetroot powder with 10% of corn sugar receives the highest acceptance among panelists and has a promising potential as a dietary supplement for the athletes
