Consumers are enjoying sweet potatoes outside of the holiday season
Beaverton Oregon (PRWEB) September 15, 2016
Reser’s introduces its new “Main St. Bistro Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes” refrigerated side dish. This delicious menu-inspired recipe contains no artificial colors or flavors and blends fresh sweet potatoes, real butter, brown sugar, and 100 percent pure maple syrup.
Beyond Thanksgiving: Sweet Potato Consumption Rises
“Consumers are enjoying sweet potatoes outside of the holiday season and we’re seeing sweet potato dishes pop up on menus across the country,” States John McCarthy, category manager. “Since people are eating sweet potatoes more often, and throughout the year, we expect strong year-round growth.”
According to a report the Agricultural Marketing Resource Center (AgMRC) prepared for the USDA, “Sweet potatoes have become more popular in the U.S. in recent years with consumption increasing nearly 80 percent between 2000 and 2014, reaching 7.5 pounds per capita. Growing consumer demand for sweet potatoes may be due to the promotion of the tuber’s health benefits. Sweet potatoes are higher in beta carotene than many other vegetables and are a source of potassium, fiber, and vitamins A and C.” (USDA ARS 2012)
