Oca (also known in New Zealand as Yams) are approximately the size of a thumb or slightly bigger. They can be apricot, yellow or the traditional red colour, with a slightly shiny, ribbed surface. Oca have a somewhat zesty yet sweet flavour, with the yellow variety being sweeter than the red.
Oca is one of the highest vegetable sources of carbohydrate and energy. They are a good source of essential amino acids, pro-vitamin A (from beta-carotene), potassium, vitamin C and B6. Yellow-orange varieties indicate the presence of carotenoids, whilst the red skins and specks in the flesh indicate the presence of anthocyanins. Oca have a low Glycemic Index making them ideal for diabetics.
