Yam is the common name for some plant species in the genus Dioscorea (family Dioscoreaceae) that form edible tubers. Yams are perennial herbaceous vines cultivated for the consumption of their starchy tubers in many temperate and tropical regions, especially in Africa, South America and the Caribbean, Asia, and Oceania. The tubers themselves, also called "yams", come in a variety of forms owing to numerous cultivars and related species.
They're a great source of fiber, potassium, manganese, copper, and antioxidants. Yams are linked to various health benefits and may boost brain health, reduce inflammation, and improve blood sugar control. They're versatile, easy to prepare, and a great vegetable to include in your diet in both sweet and savory dishes.
Suitable for making pastries, beverages, desserts. You can put in this powder in your pastry mix, ice cream mix, waffle mix and others premix base, to create the different flavour.
