Organic Jicama/Turnip (Muang Guang)435g Malaysia
Highlight: Originating in Mexico/ Central America, Mexican or sweet turnip (Pachyrhizus erosus) was brought to Asia by the Spanish. It’s a member of the bean family, hence its other name, sweet yam bean. It is most commonly eaten raw in salads of all kinds and simply sliced as a sweet snack. Don’t be afraid of the sweetness as it is packed with beneficial prebiotic fibre which gives it a low GI and supports good gut bacteria. Eaten raw you get immune boosting water-soluble vitamin C and also B6 (pyridoxine), essential for the creation of red blood cells and neurotransmitters. Peel off the thick brown skin and enjoy the white, juicy sweetness below! In Asia countries, it is usually stir fried and used as fillings for popiah.
