    Yams, a healthy food

    I recently came across literature on yams and discovered that ithey are quite a health food. Despite their rough texture and being tasteless, they are nutrient packed with trace minerals like manganese and a high quantity of vitamin C. I consider them to be a form of organic supplement.

    Yams have minimal calories and a good dose of Vitamin B6, Fibre, Potassium and Vitamin C which are good for the body and an ideal weight loss food.
    Its good to note that a distant cousin of yams, Sweet Potatoes have more nutritional benefits and fiber than yams.

    Yams have a rich source of minerals including copper, potassium, iron, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus, also a good source of potassium as well. The yam has a low glycemic index as well, so diabetics do not have to worry about a rise in their blood sugar levels as well. Also a good source of fiber and is good for constipation.

    Re: Yams, a healthy food

    Yam if I'm not mistaken is gabi in Filipino, a white sticky kamote tasting fruit? Or is it considered as a veggie? I like this stuff when it's mixed in sinigang na baboy, Tagalog style. And the whole thing blends with the soury taste. It also adds to the thickness of the soup because of its sticky texture. There are really good tasting foods that are at the same time healthy.

    Re: Yams, a healthy food

    As a root crop or tuber the yam is definitely a healthy food. However I do not know how it is eaten in another way except for the jam. Yam is a dessert here and yam jam is very popular. I haven't heard of yam being eaten by boiling but I guess there is no harm in trying.
