Sweet potatoes (Ipomoea batatas) have been widely cultivated in tropical and subtropical areas since it has been introduced in South America in the early 18th century. The enrichment in starch, crude protein, dietary fibers, minerals, pigments, and polyphenols makes it one of the most important root crops in agricultural production and a major raw supply in the food industry nowadays. One of the many varieties of sweet potatoes is the purple-fleshed sweet potato which originated in Central and South America. It is believed that explorers introduced them to the Philippines and China in the 15th century, and the potato then made its way to Japan in the 1600s. The purple sweet potato has distinctive prunosus peel and deep purple flesh with an inviting flavour and mouth feel. Because of these advantages, the purple sweet potato is served in various dishes, nutritional brewing dry powder, stuffing, sweetmeat etc., in the food processing industry. It has become a popular cultivar in Asia.

Purple sweet potatoes get their distinct colour from compounds called anthocyanins. This pigment is also found in cherries, grapes, and strawberries. The content of anthocyanin in purple sweet potato was 19.78 mg/100 g in water extract and 158 mg/100 g in acid-ethanol extract. Purple sweet potatoes have 2.5 times more antioxidants (cyanidins and peonidins) than their orange-fleshed counterparts. These colourful flavonoids have powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that have many health benefits. Research has shown that sweet potatoes rich in anthocyanins are good for hypertension, diabetes, and boost cardiovascular health.
