So my answer would be to you in simple words that there are good carbohydrates & bad carbohydrates & sweet potato has good carbohydrates in it. Good carbs slowly absorbed into your body which maintains our blood sugar level & due to this only sweet potato has the low glycemic index which makes it easily consumable for diabetic patients as well.
