Sweet Potato 'Purple'
Perfect for roasting, purple sweet potatoes also boast a rich concentration of anthocyanins, the compounds responsible for the vibrant purple hue of this vegetable. These anthocyanins serve as antioxidants that your body can utilize for various health benefits. While anthocyanins can be found in other purple foods like blueberries, sweet potatoes contain a notably higher abundance of these beneficial compounds.
