Sweet potatoes are a very nutritious vegetable, not only are they packed with vitamins; they have a low GI index. Sweet potatoes are packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, high fiber, Vitamin E and K. With such a low GI rating of 17 your body uses it slowly and prevents your blood sugar from rising. When choosing potatoes always choose sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes.
