Frequently Asked Questions about Yummy Yammy Sweet Potato Dips
What’s different about Yummy Yammy?
As far as we know, we are the only company anywhere making a commercial dip with roasted sweet potato as the main ingredient. Delicious, refreshing taste makes Yummy Yammy sweet potato dips extraordinary. As the original savory sweet potato company, Yummy Yammy offers a variety of small-batch specialty products made from roasted sweet potato. Roasting brings out the natural sweetness, rich mouthfeel and phenomenal nutrition of yams in a way that commercial microwaving and steaming just can’t match. Our food is irresistible, especially once we add wholesome ingredients like organic lime juice and Vermont honey.
Why are you building a business on sweet potatoes, of all things?
Because they are naturally sweet, extremely healthful, fun to work with (don’t you love the color?), and because no one else is doing it. Serial entrepreneurs are like that. Here’s a more in-depth article on why I make food out of sweet potatoes.
Your dips are fat-free — does that mean you’re advocating a fat-free diet?
Not at all. Fat is an essential nutrient. But these sweet potato dips didn’t need fat to taste great, so we don’t add any. In fact, you’ll want to add at least a little bit, because it turns out your body will absorb the astounding amount of beta carotene (the naturally occurring form of Vitamin A) in sweet potato better when eaten along with a little fat. We just like to let you add your own. (However, we also have friends on temporarily reduced fat diets, and friends with certain health conditions, and we are delighted that our fat-free dips make it easier for them to enjoy vibrant health.)
