Caloric Values, Single Serving

One cup of raw beet greens contains about 8 tiny calories per cup.

If we cook them, they will contain about 40 kcals per prepared cup.

One-half cup would be considered a single serving size and contains about 20 kcals.

If fat is added in the form of butter or margarine, the energy values will increase greatly due to the fatty acid content.

Health & Nutrition Notes for Beet Greens

Because it requires more greens to make a one cup serving, the potassium content will increase to 1309 per cup.

The calcium content will spike to 164 milligrams per cup while the iron content will equal close to three milligrams.

Beet greens are a good source of potassium and iron - as well as calcium and Vitamin C. At more than 11 milligrams per raw cup, that's quite an impressive amount. When cooked, the 11-plus mg's increase more than threefold to 35.9.
