<P>Sweet Potato Nutrition Like many foods, it seems potatoes have fallen into the diet trend trap. While you may be shunning white potatoes in favor of sweet potatoes, both provide essential nutrients your body needs for good health. Comparing the nutrient composition of the two can help you determine how they fit into your meal plan.</P> <P>Serving Size When comparing nutrition information for food items, it is important to use the same serving size to help judge the similarities. A 100 g serving, or about 3.3 oz., is a typical standard serving size used to compare foods. A <a href="http://www.moncleroutletvip.com/"><STRONG>moncler outlet</STRONG></a> 100 g serving of a baked white potato with the skin contains 93 calories, while the same sized serving of a baked sweet potato with the skin contains 90 calories.</P> <P>Carbohydrates and Fiber As a starchy food, most of the calories in the two potatoes comes from the carbohydrate content. A 100 g serving of the white potato contains 21 g of carbohydrates and 2.2 g of fiber, and the sweet potato has 21 g of carbohydrates and 3.3 g of fiber. While the sweet potato contains more fiber, the difference is only slight. Fiber is an essential nutrient lacking in the American diet, notes the American Dietetic Association. Fiber improves bowel movements, aids in hunger control and lowers blood cholesterol levels. Adult women need between 25 g of fiber a day, and adult men need 30 g a day..</P>
