Organic Jicama/Turnip 415g 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!
