The humble sweet potato is actually a power vegetable in more ways than one.
Here are some other appealing facts about sweet potatoes:
� One medium-sized sweet potato contains just 118 calories and is cholesterol-free and almost fat-free.
� They have more fiber than oatmeal: 4 grams in a medium-sized potato.
� One cup of cooked sweet potatoes provides 30 milligrams of the antioxidant beta carotene. You have to eat 23 cups of broccoli to get that much.
� The body converts beta carotene into vitamin A, and a serving of sweet potatoes contains twice the recommended daily allowance. Vitamin A helps maintain a healthy immune system and protects the body from strokes and heart disease.
� Sweet potatoes are naturally low in sodium but high in potassium, calcium, folate and vitamins E and C.
