Despite their name, they don’t!
On the glycemic index compare 45 to 75-100 on the white potato.
A note on cooking these sweets…Steaming, roasting or baking them can double their anti-oxidant value while boiling reduces it.
One sweet potato delivers 438 percent of your daily value of Vitamin A, eye health, while a single spud serves up none. They also provide a third more vitamin C, has more fiber and has fewer calories and carbs.
Clearly the sweet potato takes root.
In peace, health & with much love,
