Description

POUNDED YAM NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Pounded yam does the following

  • Protein: Yams contain relatively little protein. Your body uses protein to build muscle, repair tissue and synthesise biological molecules such as enzymes and hormones. Protein also functions as a fuel source for your body if you don’t consume enough carbohydrates.
  • Carbohydrate: Almost all the carbohydrates in yams–nearly 40 grammes in a 1-cup serving–are healthy complex carbs. These carbs fuel your body, allowing you to conserve your protein for uses other than energy production. Yams are also rich in fibre, a type of carbohydrate your body does not digest. While not a fuel source for your body, fibre helps maintain a healthy digestive tract and correlates with a decreased risk of obesity, heart disease and some forms of cancer
  • Fat: Yams are extremely low in fat, contributing less than 0.25 grammes per 1-cup serving. While dietary fat is essential for maintaining healthy cell membranes, cushioning your organs and allowing your body to absorb fat-soluble vitamins, excess dietary fat may lead to cardiovascular disease. The low-fat content of yams may help you reduce your overall dietary fat consumption to a healthy level.
