The sweet potato's adaptation to, and hence presence in, the tropical areas where a high proportion of the world's poorest people live, together with its nutritional advantages, make it an attractive focus for further increase in its production and consumption.

This book reviews the current knowledge about the varied aspects of the sweet potato as a human food and animal feedstuff.

This volume will be found practical and informative by all those involved in food and nutrition sciences, especially but not exclusively, in developing countries.
