Hi doctor, I want to ask for how many calories a steamed purple yam, huh?
Hello Fany, Thank you for the question.
Purple yam is one of the tubers that can be found in Indonesia. Purple sweet potato is one source of carbohydrates, protein, and other nutrients. One hundred grams of purple yam produces approximately 116 calories, contains 27 grams of carbohydrates, 1.5 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, potassium, magnesium, iron, vitamin C, and vitamin B in small amounts. The health benefits of purple yam have not been studied much. A small study shows that consumption of purple sweet potatoes can help overcome menopausal symptoms, but this effect needs further research.
