Malanga is composed of about 9.8 percent fiber, according to the University of Florida. Dietary fiber plays several important roles in physical health. It may help improve the elimination of wastes from your intestines, which may help relieve constipation and abdominal discomforts. Dietary fiber may also help lower triglycerides and low-density lipoproteins in your bloodstream, which may help prevent cardiovascular disease and stroke. This nutrient may also help control blood glucose levels, preventing dizziness and fatigue associated with hyperglycemia. 75% carbohydrates....The starches in malanga are easily digestible, which may benefit you if you suffer from a digestive disorder. It requires lower amounts of stomach acids for digestion, which may help reduce the irritation of peptic ulcers, and may decrease burning sensations in your chest and throat associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease
