As we learned from Nutritionist Liza Rowan’s live interview in BBC last week, potatoes are
– low in fat
– high in nutrients (especially Vitamin C, Potassium and Manganese), and
– a good source of energy and fibre.
What else do you need to know about this nutritious spud? Here are our potato facts:
In Ireland, Liza’s home country, people say ‘be aatin ’em, schkins ‘n’ all’, which translates into ‘eat your potatoes with skins on, they are (even) more nutritious this way’
If potatoes are stored below 7 degrees, the starch turns to sugars and alters the taste – keep them in a dark, cool, dry place
Keep potatoes stored away from onions, as gases emanated from each can destroy the other.
