Sweet Potato Pie: Best Disguised Vegetable

Sweet potatoes are ranked number #1 in nutrition of all vegetables, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Hill & Valley has managed to whip this indispensable vegetable into a heavenly No Sugar Added dessert that has sweet potatoes as its FIRST ingredient. If that is not impressive enough, check out some of the unique health benefits you’ll obtain from inhaling this exhilarating dessert—


  • Low Glycemic Food– Sweet potatoes have been shown to stabilize or lower blood sugar, due to their low glycemic index. Foods low on the glycemic index break down more slowly in the body, which may produce fewer fluctuations in blood glucose and insulin levels. Carb counting just got a little easier!
  • Rich in Quercetin– Research shows this potent phytonutrient may help you breathe easier by warding off allergies, hay fever, and asthma.
  • Loaded with Beta-Carotene– This powerful antioxidant helps to protect your skin, and is an excellent nutrient for eye health. Some research shows that sweet potatoes are a better source of bioavailable beta-carotene that green leafy vegetables. So, skip the salad, and eat the pie!
