Sweet potatoes are more nutritious than yams. Sweet potatoes and yams are both healthy foods, and they look similar. Sweet potatoes, however, have higher concentrations of most nutrients and more fiber.
Subsequently, question is, how many calories are in a Korean sweet potato? An average medium sweet potato has 112 calories, no fat, 2 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber and more than 100 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A.
Similarly one may ask, are yams bad for you?
Yams tended to be drier than sweet potatoes and they're starchier. Unlike sweet potatoes, yams are toxic if they're eaten raw, but they're perfectly safe when cooked. True yams can generally be substituted in any sweet potato recipe.

Korean sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene and are a good source of magnesium. They are also fat free and rich in fiber.
