Colocasia is an alkaline food that is covered with fibrous hairs. This veggie is rich in oxalic acid, this is the reason we need to boil/cook them to remove the oxalic acid prior to eating. They have a slimy texture when it is boiled. They can be baked, roasted, or prepared into a vegetable. They are high in hyaluronic acid which aids in the regeneration of the cells. The dietary fiber keeps the stomach full aiding in maintaining a healthy weight.
