Sweet potato (SP) is an important root crop grown all over the world and consumed as a vegetable, boiled, baked or often fermented into food and beverages. It could be a very good vehicle for addressing some health related problems and also serve as food security. The research into sweet potato processing has established the fact that there is a lot more in sweet potatoes than its starch. The review has established that the nutritional quality content in sweet potatoes can be enhanced by…
