Sweet potato flour is ground from the uncooked roots of the Ipomea batata plant native to the Americas and cultivated in Peru as many as 5,000 years ago. While Peru is home to over 4,000 native species of potato, the misnamed “sweet potato” is not one of them. Ipomea batata is a part of the morning-glory family of plants.
Sweet potatoes are common among athletes and fitness enthusiasts for their low-glycemic index and sweet taste. Sweet potato is a good source of Vitamin A, potassium, manganese and more. Sweet potato flour can be used to bread your favorite foods before frying or to bake gluten-free cakes and pies.
