A new study by Professor Derek Stewart of the James Hutton Institute completely reverses the idea of this product. According to the scientist, a person can generally live on one potato, notes “MedDaily”.
The analysis showed that potatoes are rich in vitamins (vitamins B9, B6, C), minerals, carotenoids and polyphenols. Do not forget about the high fiber content. If you replace the meat with vegetables and potatoes in your diet, you can reduce the risk of heart attacks. There is also reason to believe that potatoes enhance cognitive abilities in the elderly.
Moreover, the highest nutritional value is different for the skin of potatoes. And mineral substances, regardless of the method of preparation (mashed potatoes, baked or boiled potatoes) are preserved. Plus, compared with other products that have the same amount of carbohydrates in their composition, potatoes saturate much better. But the expert advises to limit the consumption of french fries due to the increased risk of obesity.
