Taro

VEGETABLE

Taro is a vegetable found widely in tropical regions, grown for their edible corms. Likened to sweet potato, corms are tuberous roots that can be used as a substitute in place of a starchy ingredient.

These less-known veg have a modest collection of minerals and vitamins, along with a strong profile of carbohydrates and fiber, aiding in maintaing a healthy gut.
