The polysaccharide protein components of mucus and digestive enzymes contained in fresh tubers are helpful for gastrointestinal digestion and absorption. , especially suitable for people with weak spleen and stomach. Precautions when eating yam: The yam must be soaked in salt water immediately after being sliced to prevent oxidation and blackening. There will be mucus when fresh yams are cut, and it is easy for the knife to slip and hurt your hands. You can wash it with water and a little vinegar first, which can reduce the mucus. If it accidentally sticks to your hands, you can wash it with water and a little vinegar first.
