Researchers focused on determining the level of viability of taro polvoron. Polvoron is rich in cholesterol because it contains a considerable amount of sugar. Hence, the researchers came up with an idea to make a healthy version of polvoron, that is, taro-flavored polvoron, to enhance its health benefits because taro can improve digestion, lower blood sugar levels, prevent certain types of cancers, protect the skin, boost vision, increase circulation, decrease blood pressure, aid the immune system, and prevent heart disease, as well as support muscles and nerves. The researchers used the experimental method since the study focuses on the assessment of the respondents on the characteristics of taro polvoron in terms of appearance, taste, texture, and nutritional value. After conducting the study, the RESULTS show that taro polvoron is acceptable. Based on the data that researchers had gathered from the conducted surveys, they found that their product is accepted by the teachers and students in Bestlink College of the Philippines.
