FAQs about yams

It is common to see small nodules, or eyes, on yams, indicating that the yam has been exposed to moisture or humidity. This means that the starch has started to convert to sugar. This is not necessarily a bad thing. However, if the skin is still firm, simply dig out the eye until you don't see any discoloration and proceed with preparation as normal. The skin of the yam is very high in nutrients but can also be peeled if this is an easier method by which to remove eyes or other blemishes before cooking. If the skin has also become saggy and wrinkly, this likely indicates that it has lost its nutrients and is best not to eat. 

Yams, or sweet potatoes, are often referred to as a 'super food' for their nutritional pedigrees. Low in sodium and high in fiber, yams are high in antioxidants, which have been linked to reducing the risks of cancer and heart disease. Yams offer an amazing amount of vitamin A, which bodies use to help with the immune system, vision, and reproduction. Vitamin A also plays an important role in maintaining a healthy heart, lungs, kidneys, and other internal organs. Vitamin A has also been shown to increase gut health, which can lower the risk of intestinal disease and illnesses. Studies have also shown a positive relationship between yams and heightened brain activity and immunity.
