Ingestion of nitrates from a vegetable juice beverage has been reported to improve exercise performance. The research was therefore conducted to produce a vegetable juice beverage with stable nitrate content that could potentially enhance sports activity. In this study, a placebo drink was also produced with low nitrate content and to match the taste and quality parameters of the high nitrate juice beverage.
