Accordingly, do canned beets contain nitrates?

People also ask, can you drink the juice from canned beets?
First it is okay to drink that beet juice. Second you can use the juice to cook a borschtsch, a polish beet root soup. The clear soup is just the beet root juice and you add salt, pepper and a bit of lime juice if the canned beet roots are not amrinated in a vinegar broth in the can. It is to your taste.
