New Icy Road Treatment "Beets" Using Rock Salt

NEWS

In the Midwest it doesn’t so much snow as it does ‘ice’, and that always means trouble for the roads and drivers. Last year gave us a rough winter, and the price of rock salt has gone up as a result. But out in Mounds, IL, they have created a new product to help keep the roads safe. It’s called Beet 55, and it’s a simple mixture of Beet juice and salt.

Over a dozen cities in Missouri, Kentucky, and Arkansas have purchased Beet 55 to use on their own roads. It will dispense just like rock salt – from the back of snow plows. The mixture is cheaper and lasts longer than the traditional rock salt. Hopefully that means a safe journey for when the snow hits this winter.
