A purple yam latte made using purple yam from Okinawa Prefecture. Created with dried, crushed purple yam and rich milk. This new recommended item from Isokoma Nori exudes the rich sweetness and aroma of purple yam. This powdered type dissolves in hot water, and can be enjoyed deliciously hot or with ice. Dried, crushed purple yam is used to make the most of the ingredient, so it has a rough feel when being drunk, but this is evidence of its optimum use of the ingredient. In relation to its specific gravity, purple yam powder easily sinks to the bottom, so stir well before consuming. This was selected for "SIAL INNOVATION" at the SIAL MIDDLE EAST 2016 held in Abu Dhabi.
[Purple yam from Okinawa Prefecture]
The mineral-rich purple yams are grown in the fields of contract farmers in Itoman. It is prohibited to take purple yam out of Okinawa, and so this is made using powdered yam.
The outside looks the same as a sweet potato, yet the inside is a beautiful purple color. The pigment of purple yam comes from anthocyanin which is a type of polyphenol. This is a substance that is accumulated by a plant to protect itself from UV rays, and is said to have effects that increase eye function and prevent eye strain. Enjoy the purple color and sweet taste of purple yam.
