Okay, basically, I got these exotic vegetable chips, they're pretty delicious, but i'm in a quandary. They list sweet potatoes and Batata as ingredients.
"Ingredients: a seasonal mix of root vegetables (sweet potato, parsnip, batata, taro, yuca), canola oil and/or safflower oil and/or sunflower oil, beet juice concentrate (for color), salt."
now, Batata is spanish for Sweet Potato, and going off of the pictures on their site (http://www.terrachips.com/index.php) they don't look anything like each other, so it can't just be...sweet potatoes. The only thing I can think of is that they're just regular potatoes? IDK, someone help me out here.
btw: ****s delicious

Batata is another type of sweet potato, with purple skin and dry white (often flaky) flesh. It tends to have a very low water content (when compared with regular sweet potatos) and a much milder sweet flavor. They're more common in south/central american cuisine, where they're often used in soup.
Nutritionally it's about the same as a regular sweet potato, lots of Vitamins A and C. Despite the light color flesh it's not the same as a regular white potato.
