Edo (China Potato)

The origin of the Edo, taro or Chinese potato, goes back to the south of Central Asia, probably in the countries of India and Malaysia. The Edo is among the first crops domesticated by man, its history can be traced back to the most primitive Neolithic cultures.

Known in our country as the "Amazonian tuber", the Chinese potato has become one of the most booming agricultural products in the province of Pastaza, Ecuador. Several farmers are engaged in their cultivation, which contributes to the strengthening of family economies in the area.

The nutritional value and acceptance by consumers is really important. Rich in starch, sucrose, pentose, dextrin and reducing sugars, Edo becomes a highly ideal food for those consumers who are looking for a healthy food but rich in nutrients.
