Answer: Taro is not keto, as it contains an enormous amount of carbs.
Each serving of taro (1 cup, sliced) contains 23.3 g of net carbs. Sadly, that's far too carb-heavy to fit the keto diet.
As a general rule, root vegetables rarely fit the keto diet. They're often too starchy, unlike leafy green veggies, which are mostly keto-friendly.
For a lower carb root vegetable, consider the radish. At only 2.1 g of net carbs per serving, radishes certainly leave taro in the dust.
