Wonderful sweet potato

 ingredients of sweet potatoes that make you reach for the orange tuber even more often!

While sweet potatoes have long been used in other countries, they have only been gaining ground in this country for a few years now. Originally native to South and Central America, the tuber is a winch plant that has nothing in common with potatoes despite having the same name. The more than 400 sweet potato species differ in colour – from orange to almost violet –, shape and taste.

So it is usually the taste that, in addition to the numerous processing options, immediately convinces and makes many sweet potato lovers!
However, if you are still skeptical and have not yet tried the exotic tuber, you can be convinced by the list of beneficial and healthy ingredients and properties!

Vitamin A
Sweet potatoes contain a lot of beta-carotene or provitamin A, which is converted into vitamin A in the body. We need it above all for healthy eyes, for our immune system and our cells. 100 grams of sweet potatoes contain over 200% of the recommended daily allowance of them!

 Vitamin C
Not quite as high, but still considerable, is the content of vitamin C. Over 60% of the daily requirement is in 100 grams of sweet potatoes! In turn, we need vitamin C for a strong immune system as well as for a well-functioning iron absorption, for wound healing, a healthy connective tissue and for many other functions in the body!

 Vitamin E
With a vitamin E content of 4560 micrograms per 100 grams of sweet potatoes, tubers are a wonderful anti-aging food

While sweet potatoes contain many minerals, such as magnesium and calcium, their potassium content stands out. With 413 milligrams of potassium per 100 grams of sweet potatoes, their consumption contributes to a balanced fluid balance

Due to their fiber content (3.14 grams per 100 grams), sweet potatoes can also contribute to a balanced blood sugar level! This is especially true if you cook the bowl and eat it!
