Health Benefits of Purple Sweet Potatoes

There are a lot of chips available these days. As we are all considering healthy options, there has been an increase in healthy chips made from vegetables and sweet potatoes. Sweet potato chips in particular have become a popular option because they are naturally sweet, healthier than regular potatoes, and are allowed as part of the paleo diet.

As it turns out, sweet potatoes are not all the same. As mentioned in the video from Nutritionfacts.org, only purple sweet potatoes have been shown to decrease inflammation and increase anti-oxidant capacity.

In addition, hypertensive subjects who consumed 6-8 small purple sweet potatoes a day showed a decrease in blood sugar and inflammation and a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke.

It also matters where the purple sweet potatoes come from. Because purple sweet potatoes grow well in a warmer, slightly more tropical environment, many purple sweet potatoes come from Asia where they don’t have the same regulations on pesticides and chemical use.

Our purple sweet potato chips are only made from select, Hawaii grown sweet potatoes. Our sweet potato chips are made here in Hawaii and don’t contain any additives or preservatives. The great flavor comes from the high quality ingredients and our time tested methods.
