A review of the scientific literature on the health and nutrition of sweetpotato (PW20001)
What’s it all about?
This project is communicating the health benefits of Australian sweetpotatoes by developing a range of resources that target stakeholders such as consumers and health professionals. The overall goal is to increase sweetpotato consumption through ensuring current, scientifically-backed research about Australian sweetpotatoes is available to industry.
The project team will review scientific literature on the nutritional and health benefits of sweetpotatoes and produce a report for use by industry. Recommendations on how these findings can be used to engage with health professionals will be provided.
This project may also identify potential future R&D investment areas to explore, specifically around emerging areas of science around sweetpotatoes and health.
This project is a strategic levy investment in the Hort Innovation Sweetpotato Fund.
