Healthy Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potatoes are thought about a superfood for your health. The orange color of the root is a cue that they are antioxidant-packed. A cup of prepared sweet potato has a whopping 4 grams of fiber, and more than 3x the quantity of beta-carotene that you require in a day. Due to the fiber and intricate carbohdyrates in the potato, sweet potatoes have a lower glycemic index than regular white potatoes.

Based on the International Tables of Glycemix Index, reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, boiled and peeled sweet potatoes have a glycemic index value of 59 (which is considered an average value) while new potatoes and Russet potatoes have a GI value of 78, which is thought about high glycemic index. This is one of the reasons sweet potatoes are consisted of in essentially every diet plan while white potatoes are commonly listed as off-limits on some commercial diet plans.

Yum!
