Purple sweet potato (PSP) is a special type of sweet potato with high anthocyanin pigment in the root, rich in starch, sugar, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants like phenolics, β-carotene and is a highly potential substrate for alcoholic fermentation in production of red wine, herbal/medicinal sweet potato wine, and beer with a higher dietary importance. Fermented Alcoholic Beverages from Purple Sweet Potato discusses the technological interventions in preparation of the non-conventional wine and beer, step wise processing, biochemical and organoleptic quality of the finished products and health implications.
