If you slice open a sweet potato and see milky juice coming out of the insides, is that normal? Or should I toss it out?

Sweet potatoes often produce a milky sap, a kind of latex.

Most root veggies and vine ripened veggies will do this. Including squash and other forms of potatoes

It's normal (and shouldn't last long after the cut). Just give it a quick rinse before cooking if it gets all sappy.
