It has many nutritional values. The key features of the Yam bean are: the prebiotic fiber is the fructans, the 100 grams of yam bean gives 38 kilocalories of energy. The juices extracted from the yam bean is suitable for the production and development of a healthy drink, both fermented and non-fermented beverages. However, there is no study on the processing of beverages from Yam bean in Thailand. Details of the properties of the yam bean for the production of beverages in this article are a guideline for those interested in further study and research.
