Sweet potato: calories, carbs, fats and other nutrients

Sweet potato

There are two main varieties of sweet potatoes: one that becomes crumbly when cooked, and one that becomes moist and crumbly, usually incorrectly called yams. Indeed, several varieties of yam are grown in America, but it grows exclusively in Florida. If rot appears on the sweet potato, it quickly spreads to the entire root and can impart an undesirable unpleasant odor and taste to the entire product. This rot can appear as dark, round or soft and damp spots, or as dry and shriveled, discolored and sunken spots, usually at the end of the root.
