George always prefer to use U.S. potatoes because:-

  • The potatoes are grown in favorable soil, in ideal growing conditions and with plentiful water.
  • Because the United States potato industry is largely a family affair, U.S. potato growers draw from generations of in-the-field experience to cultivate a premium product.

  • Potatoes provide the carbohydrates, potassium, and energy your family need to have the nutrients for a healthy daily routine. They are also full of vitamin B6 and C, potassium.
  • A medium sized potato contains 26 grams of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are a key a key source of energy for muscles.  
  • One medium size potato gives you about 30% of your daily value, 27 miligrams of Vitamin C.  Vitamin C aids in collagen production; assists with iron absorption; and helps heal wounds and keep your gums healthy. Vitamin C may help support the body’s immune system.  This is also good news that functional foods such as potatoes can help boost our immunity system naturally, especially great during covid times. 
  • U.S. Potatoes are rich in Vitamin B6 with one medium potato providing 10% of the recommended daily value. Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that plays important roles in carbohydrate and protein metabolism. It helps the body make nonessential amino acids needed to make various body proteins; it is a cofactor for several co-enzymes involved in energy metabolism; and is required for the synthesis of hemoglobin – an essential component of red blood cells.
  • Potatoes have 3 grams of plant-based protein per serving. Protein is the building block for growth and a key component of muscles, ligaments and connective tissues.  
  • One medium size skin on potato contains 620 milligrams of potassium or 15% DV of potassium which is more potassium than a medium-size banana.  Potassium is a mineral that is part of every body cell. It helps regulate fluids and mineral balance in and out of cells and in doing so, helps maintain normal blood pressure. Potassium is also vital for transmitting nerve impulses or signals, and in helping muscles contract.
  • One medium size potato with skin contributes 2 grams of fiber, or 7% of the DV per serving. Dietary fiber is a complex carbohydrate and is the part of the plant material that cannot be digested and absorbed in the bloodstream. Soluble fiber may help with weight loss as it makes you feel full longer, and research has shown it also may help lower blood cholesterol.
