For example, 100g of our organic sweet potato powder equals 700g of raw sweet potatoes. It is a highly-concentrated supplement, packed with beta-carotene and a range of flavonoids and polyphenols.

Our powder range provides all the benefits of the sweet potato, without the washing, peeling, chopping and cooking!

Key health aspects of sweet potato

Sweet potato has been referred to as one of the most nutritious foods in the human diet. It is packed with a range of nutrients and provides long-lasting energy for exercise and performance. 

Complex carbohydrates

Sweet potato is known to have a very low glycaemic impact in the body. This means that compared to similar carbohydrate sources (potatoes, rice, pasta), it has a very minimal impact on raising blood sugar.

For that reason, it is a fantastic source of long-lasting carbohydrates that can help you fuel for training and performance.  

Vitamin A


Sweet potatoes are one of the richest natural sources of beta-carotene, which is known as a pro-vitamin. When in the body, this pro-vitamin is then converted to vitamin A, which is essential for eye health and protection, cellular interactions, and immune function.

Interestingly, it is this pro-vitamin A that gives sweet potato, and other vegetables, their yellow/orange colour.

Vitamin C

Another vitamin that contributes to the tropical colour of sweet potato is that of vitamin C. This is an essential antioxidant and contributes to a healthy immune system. It is important to remember that vitamin C most likely does not prevent the frequency of colds and the flu. However, it may help to reduce the duration that you suffer from these, an effect especially prominent in athletes.

Essential minerals

Sweet potato is also a natural source of several key minerals such as manganese, copper, potassium and iron. These are inorganic elements that are required in very small amounts in the body. Without them, our bodies would lose the capacity to produce energy, transport oxygen and heal from wounds.

Antioxidants

Sweet potatoes are rich in a class of phytonutrients known as carotenoids and in fact, beta-carotene falls into this class too! These are potent antioxidants when in the body and help to scavenge (or quench) free radicals, which are harmful species in the body.

Free radicals are inflammatory molecules that can harm our blood vessels and tissues when allowed to build up. Antioxidants help to eradicate these and prevent the harmful interactions they have with our tissues.
