The potato is attracting more and more interest in the world. And that advance will continue for a while according to Robert Graveland, R&D Manager at HZPC. Will the potato become the world’s food crop number one?
Potato is super healthy
The potato is sometimes given a bad image in diets. You can leave the potato out if you want to lose weight quickly, but after that you need to start eating a balanced diet again. Those who don’t eat potatoes, may start suffering from shortages in carbohydrates and other important nutrients. Potatoes are part of a healthy and balanced eating pattern. A potato is full of vitamins, has a perfect amino acid ‘superfood’ profile, is gluten-free, and doesn’t contain cholesterol or fat. And if you eat the potato in the skin, it’s a particularly high-fibre vegetable.
