What is Ube?
You may have encountered this vegetable in an Asian grocery store, or heard reference to it. Ube is the Filipino word for purple yam. As you may have seen through our desserts, ube is a famous Filipino flavour that you can find in many Filipino desserts & drinks. Ube has a bright violet colour which makes it one of the most identifiable Filipino desserts.
We get asked this question a lot: is ube the same thing as taro? The answer is no. Do not confuse ube with taro, they are different. Taro is a root vegetable (taro root), whereas, taro is a purple yam.
If you’ve never tried it before, ube is a delicious flavour that is yummy and not-too-sweet. You can order multiple ube flavoured products from us. Check out our catering menu here on how to do so.
