Dioscorea opposita Thunb.

Please note that our current batches of Shan Yao have small amounts of the common 'Biscuit Beetle', a harmless insect that is often found in food storage or in retailing premises. Unfortunately as we do not use sulphur or pesticides, this is an unavoidable issue. Shan Yao is a carbohydrate and nutrient dense herb and naturally attracts these insects, however they are harmless and the herb can be used as normal if washed.

Please be aware that other sources of Shan Yao may be sulphur treated; the texture of the herb will be smooth rather than slightly rough and the colour will be unnaturally very white.
