Drying sweet potato

Sweet Potatoes 
Sweet potatoes, often called “yams”, “Di Gua” and “Gan Shu”, are plenty in protein, starch, pectin, cellulose, amino acid, vitamins and mineral substances and are thus praised as “the food for longevity”. They help to cure cancers, protect hearts, prevent emphysema and diabetes and lose weight. In Japan, they are also praised as “a food for longevity” and have good pharmacological efficacy. Sweet potatoes are widely grown all over the country, and thus their yield is very considerable. They are very popular with people as they abound in polysaccharide and mucus protein necessary for human body. Typically, sweet potatoes are not processed but directly sold in the market, causing inconvenience in transportation and low price. If sweet potatoes processed into food products for sale, their added values will be greatly increased and better economic benefits will be achieved.
