Taro or arbi is a starchy vegetable that is high in carbohydrates. So, taro may induce gas. The John Hopkins Medicine website also suggests that Taro, if not digested properly, may get digested by the bacteria in the large intestine to cause gas.
However, Taro is not bad for digestion but an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals to maintain a healthy weight and strengthen the immune system. A research paper has shown that Taro has a low glycemic load and can be a substitute for glucose metabolic diseases.
However, it is always recommended to consult a nutritionist before eating starchy vegetables regularly.
