3: Anti-cancer properties
Taro root contains plant compounds called polyphenols that have various health benefits, including the ability to reduce cancer risks. The main polyphenols found in taro root are quercetin, which is also found in large quantities in onions, apples, and tea.

Because taro root contains a lot of fiber and resistant starch, it can be beneficial to gut health.

Taro root has a starchy texture and a mild, sweet taste that resembles sweet potato, and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes.
