The most important root crops in terms of production tonnage in developing countries are cassava, potato and sweet potato.
Root crops are a cheap, readily available energy source for many people. They contain very little protein or fat, but some (sweet potato and yam) are a good source of vitamins A and C. Roots are tubers are not consumed raw as the starch is not digestible.
Therefore, they all require some form of primary processing to make them edible. There is also a range of value-added products that can be made out of roots and tubers.
