  • They are especially beneficial in treating cancers of lungs and oral cavity.
  • They also help in protecting from cold and flu and aid in skin rashes and nausea.
How to Use:
  • Store it in a cool, dark and well ventilated place. Refrigeration makes it take longer to cook.
  • While consuming, the outer skin is always taken away first. It is never eaten raw.
  • Peeled taro should be kept in a bowl with water until ready to use.
  • Colocasias can be roasted, fried, or boiled.
