Taro is a versatile root vegetable that is known by many different names – dasheen for its species, arbi in hindi and chamadumpa in Telegu Indian language. Its origins can be rooted from India and Southeast Asian countries as it thrives in countries with mostly moist and warm climates. Its versatility is because both its leaves and roots can be consumed – making it available as the heart of the ingredients in many various food especially in powdered milk tea in the Philippines!
In this post, the adaptability of Taro and its many roles are uncovered – one of which being a Chemag Taro Milk Tea drink. Begging the question, how does this functional vegetable transform to be one of the most balanced milk tea beverages out there to drink?
Rich in Anti-Oxidants like Quercetin
Quercetin is a pigment that are found in plants and are commonly called as flavanoids. The good thing in this case is that quercetin is prevalently seen in Taro. Often used for its medicinal value as opposed to its taste value, many studies support that it has anti-oxidants that work as anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy and anti-cancer bodies.
Fun fact: Quercetin can also be found in green tea and matcha tea! Maybe make your next Chemag Taro Milk Tea with Taro powdered milk tea mixed with green tea or matcha tea? Sounds good, yeah?
Rich in Fiber
In 1 cup of fiber, you’ll find approximately 6.7 grams of fiber already. To give a better idea of what that number signifies, according to the American Heart Association, 25 to 30 grams of fiber is needed in our daily value intakes. Generally, people do an intake of only half (15 grams) of what is recommended. There is roughly 1 cup of dasheen in a Taro powdered milk tea drink – double that and you’ll already get what’s normally consumed in a day! That second round of Chemag’s Taro Milk Tea suddenly doesn’t sound so greedy, right?
A Good Diet Buddy
Taro makes good company for when you’re trying to get into a weight loss diet and jokingly, also a wallet diet! The fiber and the resistant starch found in Taro helps to make one feel full more easily full.
Many previous researches done on control groups that consume a certain amount of fiber and resistant starch prior to eating show fewer calorie intake.
Good for the Sweet Tooth
If you’re fond of saccharine flavors, suffering from high blood sugar levels or possibly both, Taro powdered milk tea is a great fix for you! High-fiber food like our friend, Arbi, as aforementioned makes one especially full after just a few bites. Besides preventing more intake of carbs and possible absorption of more high-blood sugar culprits, it also translates to slower digestion. These prevent spikes from occurring in blood sugar levels – which usually transpires after hearty meals.
No to Gut-Wrenching Moments
If digestive problems are a common dilemma for you, Chemag’s Taro Milk Tea is the key for you! This particular powdered milk tea of Chemag contains fiber and resistant starch that the body simply doesn’t like digesting. This isn’t negative though! Instead of being absorbed, they are transformed into food for microbes found in your gut that later on ultimately adapt to be good bacteria. The role of these bacteria is to line your intestines and keep them squeaky-clean, healthy and strong.
No More Heartache
Once again fiber and resistant starch take on the limelight and make sure that you don’t experience any heartache – physically and emotionally (with its yummy goodness). Both play take a lead in ensuring that your cholesterol levels are kept low so that you can be on the go.
Rich in Other Nutrients
Although the main highlight of Taro is its fiber content, it is also best to know the other nutrients it has to offer to the table. According to Nutrition Data, it also contains the following:
- Fiber: 6.7 grams
- Manganese: 30% of the daily value (DV)
