What Is Purple Sweet Potato Powder?
Purple sweet potatoes are root vegetables. The tubers taper to points on both ends and are members of the Ipomoea genus, just like other sweet potatoes (yams are of the genus Dioscorea). There are two main varieties—Okinawa (white skin) and Stokes (purple skin)—though they share the characteristic of having a deep purple flesh. The color comes from anthocyanins, the same pigment that gives cherries, strawberries, purple carrots, and other vegetables their color. These sweet potatoes are easy to prepare and cook. They’re not as easy to find as regular sweet potatoes and are more of a specialty item, so they will cost a little more.
FYZ Purple Sweet Potato Powder is a spray-dried/ freeze-dried fruit powder, retains all the vital nutrients and flavor of the fresh fruit.
Benefits of Purple Sweet Potato Powder
The purple color content indicates the presence of high antioxidants, particularly polyphenol antioxidants called anthocyanins. The same antioxidants are present in blueberries too. Anthocyanin consumption is associated with lowering cholesterol and reducing heart disease and cancer risk. Similar to white and yellow potatoes, the purple varieties contain carotenoid compounds, caffeic acid, scopolin, chlorogenic acid and ferulic acid.
The antioxidants in potatoes prevent cancers, especially colon and breast cancers. A study showed that cancer cells did not grow quickly when purple potato extract was consumed. However, more research needs to be done on the subject since the studies so far have been limited to lab rats and nothing has been tested on human beings.
3. Blood Sugar
Compared to other potatoes, purple potatoes have a lower glycemic index, thus causing a lower risk of blood sugar spurts. The polyphenol compounds contained in the starch prevent the absorption of blood by the intestines. A study conducted on rats who were fed the purple potato extracts saw increased glucose tolerance levels and a positive impact on maintaining normal blood sugar levels.
4. Blood Pressure
Due to the amount of potassium derived upon eating purple potatoes, which are rich in polyphenol compounds, the blood pressure decreases when consumed. It is said to have a similar function to medication meant to lower blood pressure.
