Potatoes Dried
AAA
Because potatoes are eaten so frequently they are very significant nutritionally. Potatoes are a good source of vitamin C, potassium and fibre and contain some magnesium. They are high in starch so will stop you feeling hungry for a long time. There is a special fibre in potato skin that helps to protect against some cancers, so to get the most goodness from your potato, leave the skin on. Potatoes contain anti–oxidants which research shows are able to inhibit the development of some cancers. In addition to this, anti–oxidants also decrease your risk of heart disease. Potatoes are not fattening, however some cooking and preparation methods are! Sometimes potatoes have had a pretty bad reputation for being fattening, but it isn't the potatoes fault it is what we do to it.
