Potato supplies complex carbohydrates that are essential for energy. One serving of a 5.3 ounce medium potato provides 10 percent of protein; 45 percent of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) for Vitamin C, most of which is found immediately under the skin; 21 percent of potassium and 3 grams of fiber. It has no fat and contains less than 100 calories. Potatoes are a very good source of Vitamin B6, potassium, copper, manganese, phosphorus, niacin, dietary fiber, and pantothenic acid. Potatoes also contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. Among these important health-promoting compounds are carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid, as well as unique tuber storage proteins, such as patatin, which exhibit activity against free radicals.
How to use
Place the Potatoes in a cardboard box, paper bag, mesh bag or basket to ensure good ventilation. Plastic bags won't allow them to breathe, and will shorten their shelf life considerably. Store it in a cool, humid and dark place at an ideal 45-50Â° temperature range. Avoid putting them in the fridge as the too cold temperature will turn the potato starch into sugar.
