    I was just wondering if one is more 'healthy' than the other? Unhelpfully the stats on the pack of each I have at the moment aren't easy to compare as one is on 100g of cooked and the other 100g or raw, or doesn't that make much difference!

    I would say they are both healthy foods,providing they arn't cooked in fat. But sweet potatoes are lower g.i. food than normal potatoes and so would be more filling.

    Ah, I knew I remembered from low carb that eating sweet potatoes was better for you than ordinary ones, the low GI would be the reason for that then. Thank you
