Did you know that potatoes are four times higher than bananas and twice as high as avocados in potassium? They’re also very high in vitamin B6 as well as vitamin C, and minerals like manganese and phosphorus! They are the go-to food for many bodybuilders and athletes during recovery for many important reasons. Once again, those low-carb crazies got it wrong. Potatoes are very good for you! But did you also know that there are over 4,000 varieties of native potatoes and over 180 wild potato species. (So says the International Potato Center). Also good for the environment, one hectare of potato can yield two-to-four times the food quantity of grain crops. Potatoes produce more food per unit of water than any other major crop and are up to seven times more efficient in using water than cereals.
