Taro is toxic in its raw form. In order to eat it you need to either cook it or steep the taro roots in cold water overnight.

really!!! Thats interesting...
I actually found a few recipes with it grated on salads... but that didn't sound appealing....
So just soaking them gets the toxins out????:confused:

yep it is, do a quick google search a ton of info will come up. I first saw taro on "top cheif" show on Bravo. They talked about it being toxic raw so I did a little research and found it on a bunch of other websites.
I'm not sure why somone would suggest chopping it up raw, perhaps they mean to do that after its been soaked overnight.
