The potato, a healthy product
Potatoes are packed full of beneficial, important nutrients like vitamin C, B1, B6, magnesium, zinc, carbohydrates, iron, folic acid and fibre and are naturally free from gluten. This makes the potato an ideal addition to a healthy and varied diet. In areas where food is scarce due to poverty or war, the nutritious and quick-growing potato can offer huge benefits. And the potato is a great asset to consumers who prefer food with fewer calories too. In short, the potato is good for everyone.
