The potato itself is a nutritious food of the highest quality: a single, medium-sized one provides over 50% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin C, 20% of the dose of vitamin B6 (involved in protecting the heart and regenerating nerve cells), iron and potassium (important for regulating blood pressure).

When choosing new potatoes, these health benefits increase because their peel contains even greater amounts of minerals and vitamins than the core of old potatoes. A good Chef advises you not to peel them, but only to wash them with a rough sponge, under running water.

We can also eat them fried, without fear of gaining weight, because they have more water, more fiber, less carbohydrates and less fat than ripe potatoes.
