The color alone will bowl you over!
A list of all the positive attributes of the purple yam is beyond our scope – at least according to our researchers. Here’s a small excerpt: The purple yam is supposedly good for rheumatism, gout, arthritis, hardening of the arteries, menstrual cramps, etc., etc., etc. Naturally, we’re unable to provide scientific proof.
On a more pragmatic level, we can say: It’s very similar to the European sweet potato. In Asia, the purple yam has many uses, including in ice cream, milkshakes, yogurt, cakes, cupcakes and, of course, smoothies.
The purple color alone is a USP and is guaranteed to be an eye catcher on the shelf!
