About

Sweet potatoes are considered one of the most important crops cultivated for food in the world. They are high in both potassium and Vitamin A, rich in carbohydrates, and offer antioxidants, vitamin E, and vitamin C.

Sweet potatoes have a low glycemic index and are a high fiber food, providing a sense of fullness without causing a spike or low in blood sugar.

Sweet potatoes should not be refrigerated. Keep stored loose in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
