"Effect of Processing Method on the Proximate Composition, Mineral Content and Antinutritional Factors of Taro (Colocasia esculenta L.) Grown in Ethiopia" by Adane et al. looks at the composition of taro and the effect that boiling and fermentation, two stages of the production process, has on its nutritional value. Factors such as protein content and fat content were evaluated.

"Vegetable Consumption Patterns in Yaounde, Cameroon" by Kamga et al. evaluates the factors that influence vegetable consumption in households in Yaounde, Cameroon. The results showed that preference in vegetables consumed varied based on socioeconomic class and ethnic group. The amount of times a vegetable was consumed and which vegetables were preferred over others was also evaluated.
