Yam (Dioscorea spp.) are important products in
many countries. They are the third most
consumed crops in the Sub-Saharan region,
especially in West Africa and are also largely
consumed in the South Americas, India, and
South-East Asia .Yams represented a guarantee
of food security for centuries, especially before
the introduction of crops such as corn and
maize, dried yam chips are produced through
peeling, slicing, blanching, steeping, and
sun-drying. Yam flakes are obtained with the
same process as yam chips, where the drying
process is faster due to the smaller size of the
Yam chips and flakes can be further milled into
flour, which can be reconstituted in boiling water
to form a thick paste, consumed for meals in
tropical areas as a source of carbohydrates.
