    Not sure if I see the difference in these nutrition facts ...

    So I'm trying to limit my simple sugar intake in my diet and I was always under the impression that sweet potatoes were a better choice than regular potatoes due to having a lower GI.

    So I started looking up nutrition info on sweet potatoes and I got two (seemingly) conflicting results:

    (1) http://nutritiondata.com/facts-A00001-01c00h1.html

    and,

    (2) http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-A00001-01c00h6.html


    I notice the sweet potato in (1) has no sugars, but the one in (2) does. Yet they look almost identical?

    Can someone set me straight on the sugar content of sweet potatoes? I was planning on buying enough to last me for a week, but now I'm not too sure

    Thanks a bunch,

    -Eps

    The one in (1) has nothing written next to sugar, it doesn't really mean "0g".

    Sweet potatoes are proof that God loves us.

    Try 'em with a whole pile of seasoning salt, and Kraft Chick'n'Rib sauce... oh, I've said too much...

    Slice em very thin, put on cookie sheet, spray cooking spray on them, season with spice, etc. of choice, bake at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

    Sweet potato chips.

    Doesn't really pertain to the question, but I just wanted to piggy-back on built.

    Well since I haven't heard anything negative about sweet potatoes in the forums (or anywhere else), sweet potatoes here I come!
