Sweet Potato: An Untapped Food Resource
This book reviews the current knowledge about the varied aspects of the sweet potato as a human food and animal feedstuff. In an introductory chapter, the historical spread of the crop from its site of origin in South America is briefly described followed by a general description of the plant and its present production trends. Examination of the chemical composition of the sweet potato and analysis of its nutritional value emphasize the important role that the sweet potato might play in combating vitamin A deficiency diseases. Effects of toxic factors and anti-nutritional components are also considered. Descriptions of curing, storage, and cooking methods are complemented by a discussion of their effects on composition and nutritional value. A description of the ways in which the sweet potato can be processed or incorporated into a wide variety of products will be of particular value to researchers. The use of both roots and vines as animal feed are thoroughly reviewed, followed by a discussion of the possibilities and problems associated with enhanced consumption and utilization.
