Default Canned yams question

In the bodybuilders shopping guide for food, one of the complex carbs listed is yams. I have some in a can here, from S&W (170 cal, 0g fat, 0 cholesterol, 46g carbs, 4 g fiber, 21g sugar, and 2g protein). In the ingrediants it lists corn syrup, sugar, brown sugar, modified food starch, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. I'm guessing this isn't the best kind to eat? Are there better kinds to buy in the store? If so, what is the brand name? thanks guys.

Why don't you just buy the fresh ones in the produce section?
