Potatoes are a very good source of vitamin C, a good source of vitamin B6, copper, potassium, manganese, and dietary fiber. Potatoes also contain iron and copper. Iron is the most important component that maintains the hemoglobin levels in the body. Low iron intake causes lack of energy, dizziness, headache and anemia. Copper along with iron is necessary for red blood cell formation. Potatoes are a wholesome food and you won’t be hungry at all, for some hours, after eating potatoes. They contain carbohydrates, which is a good source of energy.

If potato is so nutritional, where does the fault lie? The fault lies in the way people cook or eat potatoes. We prepare a salty, fried and fatty snack of potatoes.
The skin which contains most of the nutrients is peeled off. While cooking potatoes, most of the vitamin C is lost. It is better to eat baked potatoes, than fried or
grilled ones.
