Browse through any market in the world and you'll find plenty of sweet potatoes to store and supply. Fruits and vegetables contain vitamins, minerals, fiber and complex carbohydrates that help reduce the risk of illness and cancer.
Containing beta-carotene, sweet potato also contains vitamin A, rich in potassium, and a daily sweet potato can greatly reduce the risk of heart disease and even cancer. This fat-free and cholesterol-free vegetable is ideal for people with diabetes because they have a low glycemic index. Although carrots were once considered the best source of beta-carotene, sweet potatoes have already surpassed it.
Some tips for choosing/preparing for perfection:
* They are not stored like white potatoes, so they are served within a week of purchase.
* Choose products that are sturdy, wrinkle-free, and have no bruises or soft spots.
* Store them in a cool, dry place in an open air.
* Do not chill them, otherwise they will form a hard core in the middle and their taste will deteriorate.
