Potatoes originated in South America—home to many ‘super’ foods such as avocados and the ancient grain, quinoa. Easy to grow and nutrient dense, potatoes became a global staple after spreading to Europe and the US in the 1500s and 1600s. A single serving (one potato) provides 15%-20% of the average person’s daily potassium needs and is a great source of Vitamin C and antioxidants. To get the most nutritional benefit from your (organic) potato, eat it with its skin on! The skin is high in fibre and also contains B Vitamins. This potato is great for boiling, mash, roasting, baking, chips and mash.
