Let’s Talk Purple Sweet Potato Nutrition 

Sweet Potato purpleThe deep rich purple color of Stokes Organic Purple Sweet Potatoes is natural and not a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO).

Purple Sweet Potato and Anthocyanins

Moreover, the purple color is said to be attributed to a powerful compound called Anthocyanin that acts as an antioxidant. 

In addition, studies have shown that nutrients such as Vitamin C found in many fruits and vegetables also act as an antioxidant.

Anthocyanin not only gives fruits and vegetables their vibrant colors, but also act as a free radical scavenger. 

Antioxidants help our body fight free radicals that can be very damaging to the cells in our bodies and potentially promote certain chronic diseases. 

The National Institute Of Health gives more detailed insights on other sources of antioxidants and their many health benefits.

Purple Sweet Potato Calories and Glycemic Index

Purple sweet potatoes are slightly less sweet than other sweet potatoes. However, they can be cooked in the same way as their orange cousins. 

Approximately 4 oz or 1/2 cup of cooked purple sweet potato provides approximately 140 calories, 27 g carbs, and 4 g fiber. In additionThey also contain several vitamins, minerals, and beta-carotene (a form of vitamin A). 

Purple Sweet Potatoes are said to have a low Glycemic Index (GI) and are great for people living with Diabetes. Low GI foods are broken down to glucose at a slower rate and do not rapidly spike one’s blood sugar (Healthline).

This recipe is dedicated to those living with Celiac Disease, Gluten sensitivity, and milk or lactose intolerance. 

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley or food products made with these grains.

Moreover, people who live with Celiac Disease cannot eat these grains. 

When they eat foods that contain gluten, an immune response is triggered along their digestive tract. 

In addition, over time, the lining of their digestive tract becomes so inflamed and damaged.

They experience symptoms such as diarrhea, bloating, GI bleeding, and malabsorption of some nutrients; just to name a few.
