Nutritional values

Sweet potatoes contain plenty of energizing carbohydrates as well as the antioxidant beta-carotene, which helps protect the body's cells against free radical damage.

Sweet potatoes shouldn't be kept in the refrigerator, but in a dry, cool place, where they'll stay fresh for up to a week.
