Taro is a tropical root vegetable with a mildly sweet taste. It has light purple color with a sweet-potato-like texture plus its own uniqueness.
It’s a great source of various nutrients that many people don’t get enough of, including fiber, potassium, magnesium and vitamins C and E.
It is one of the favourite ingredients in lots of Asian desserts. But do you know many taro milk tea shops use artificial taro flavour because it's so much cheaper and can enhance its naturally subtle flavour? Make sure to ask them if they use fresh taro next time when you order it.
