Reheating sweet potato wedges

Loving sweet potato wedges with some paprika and reggae reggae apple sauce to dip at the moment. Wondering If I can make them now and reheat them in the micro tomorrow in work?

    Well yeah of cause you can!! But are you using organic sweet potato? As the normal ones in the super market are covered in wax so you cant eat the skin??

    Wax on sweet potatoes? Are you sure? Fruit is often coated in wax to slow down its drying out.

    I probably never consume enough sweet potatoes for 'wax intake' to become an issue. A quick boil would likely get rid of it though?

    I always give mine a good scrub before wedging and shoving in the oven.  Only thing to come off them has been the dirt and nasty looking bits, no wax to be seen though.

    Is consuming wax a problem? I would expect it to pass through the gut completely undigested & unabsorbed.

    Didn't James write an article on the digestion problems from re-heated potatoes, something to do with resistance starch?

    For the life of me I cant find that article

    It's only really a problem for sufferers with irritable bowel syndrome as it can exacerbate symptoms. Otherwise, it's actually very beneficial as it improves the satiety of a meal (although the exact mechanism hasn't been determined), increases lipid oxidation and acts as source of dietary fibre.

    Never noticed wax on, I usually just give a quick rinse under tap, chop into wedges and mix in a bowl with some cajun spice and olive oil.

    How to Enjoy
    Tips for Preparing Sweet Potatoes
    If you purchase organically grown sweet potatoes, you can eat the entire tuber, flesh and skin. Yet, if you buy conventionally grown ones, you should peel them before eating since sometimes the skin is treated with dye or wax; if preparing the sweet potato whole, just peel it after cooking.
    As the flesh of sweet potatoes will darken upon contact with the air, you should cook them immediately after peeling and/or cutting them. If this is not possible, to prevent oxidation, keep them in a bowl covered completely with water until you are ready to cook them."

    Something I found easly on the internet and hence why on the label it says peel and boil or mash only...

    Do you all bake sweet potato wedges raw or do you par boil them first?

    Sometimes =/= Always. Dye may be of harmless vegetable origin - check the label. Wax is obvious.

    I would check for wax and remove it if possible (I've not yet seen a sweet potato with wax on it).
    I would microwave the sweet potato and eat it, skin and all, probably with butter.
