Thanks Hamid

Hi Pat, yes they taste similar to yams or regular orange sweet potatoes but these purple sweet potatoes are much better for you in that they have three times the antioxidants of the orange ones. Antioxidants are vitamins and minerals that strengthen your immune system which in turn, wards off infections like colds and flu. So not only do you get a great tasting food product but you feel better on top of it. The three major antioxidant vitamins are beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Youíll find them in colorful fruits and vegetables Ė especially those with purple, blue, red, orange, and yellow hues. To get the biggest benefits of antioxidants, eat these foods raw or lightly steamed; donít overcook or boil. Now you know!

Purple potatoes - do they taste like regular potatoes?
