Sweet Potato – the queen of roots

Rich in minerals, dietary fiber and vitamins, especially vitamin A, sweet potato contains a very high amount of manganese and helps to support healthy bones, stabilizes blood sugar levels and protects from free radicals. Sweet Potato flour adds a delicious exotic flavour to bread, cakes and pancakes, or gravies and custards. It can be used as a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour. Farmed small scale on the island, the sweet potatoes are carefully selected and cleaned before being dried in special solar dryers and pounded in traditional mortars typical for the region. Packaged immediately, the flour retains its rich flavour and high nutrition value. Please also try Dada Traditional Zanzibar Sauce with Fresh Sweet Potatoe Leaves.
