I tried to do a search on this and have found some conflicting information and was hoping someone could clear this up for me....
I love sweet potatoes and thought they were better for you than regular potatoes as they have more complex carbs in them....
But then I read that they are much higher in sugar???
Does anyone know which is true? I bought some and now am deliberating whether just to feed them to my partner....
They do have a higher sugar content (thus the "sweet" part of the name) but do also contain complex carbs that are good for our daily dietary needs. Eating them in moderation is always best but becoming a daily habit wouldn't be the best idea.
They are indeed very high sugar content! Nothing to eat the right amount, they do not treat it as a main meal to eat like ~ ~
Well Potatoes contain high Sugar and that are nutritious. Moreover,According to my information One potato has 150 calories . I really like to eat it .
The Sweet Potato is said to be one of the most nutritionally complete foods. In addition its versatility makes it a must have vegetable. It can be boiled, baked or fried; used for savoury and sweet recipes including biscuits, breads, muffins, croquettes, pies and cakes as well as a welcome addition to soups, casseroles and stews, especially useful in vegetarian or vegan dishes.
It's true that sweet potatoes have a higher sugar content, but they also have much more in the way of vitamins, specifically vitamin A, and complex carbs (as mentioned by some other posts). I think the health community is kind of mixed on them -- I know a dietician who eats one for lunch every day and a doctor who says they shouldn't be eaten more than once a week. So it's like a lot of these things: go with moderation and what makes you feel good.
I love sweet potatoes I've always wanted to try out the pie .I have had the McCain sweet potatoe fries.
