Nutritional Facts About Sweet Potatoes

Although typically known as a tropical vegetable, sweet potatoes are grown right here in Ontario! In fact, sweet potato production in the province has doubled over the last five years. At Flavour Fuel in St. Catharines, we take full advantage of this super food, which provides four-times the recommended daily intake of beta carotene, an agent with cancer, heart disease and macular degeneration-fighting properties.


Sweet potatoes are loaded with nutrients, including antioxidants, which when consumed are converted to Vitamin A for healthy skin, hair and eyes.
