Please folks, be careful: my diamond food is starting to make me vomit every time I eat it. Its thin skin can allow a lot of pesticides into its bulb, I think. This summer I ate  Jicama with thin skin also and my sinuses burned afterwards.....

I couldn't find any articles about pesticides used on malanga in Mexico.

You should probably soak all questionable food really well and avoid what you know has made you sick.

With malanaga I am more concerned with the poison it naturally contains than the ones added to it.

Are you fully cooking it to destroy the poison? Are you removing the outer skin?

Yes I am fully cooking it and always removed the peel and it never, ever bothered me until a month ago. Kroger used to get malanga from Puerto Rico or Dominica, and now it's importing it from Mexico. I think Fiesta is importing from Mexico also. At Fiesta it is 70 cents more per pound to buy. I don't have a better source of malanga yet, so........this may be adios!
