    Food Unwrapped puts Beet It to the test

    6th January 2015

    Last night Channel 4’s ‘Food Unwrapped’ headed over to Exeter University to test the power of nitrate with Professor Andy Jones.

    Presenter Kate Quilton tested her stamina on a bike across two separate sessions, having been given a Beet It Sport shot for one session and a nitrate-depleted placebo for another.

    Kate managed to cycle for an additional 30 seconds having consumed the Beet It sport shot, which Andy Jones said was “a 4% increase in your performance, which is consistent with what we’ve shown in some other studies using this exercise.”

    The episode is available to view in full on 4OD if you missed it: http://www.channel4.com/…/food-unwrapped/on-demand/59510-014
