An Essential Grocery Guide: Healthy Facts About Potatoes

Potatoes are nutritional powerhouses. Many nutrition experts believe that potatoes are one of the best sources of complex carbohydrates available. They are low in fat and high in potassium and vitamins B and C. When choosing potatoes, look for ones that have a smooth skin and no sprouts. Stay away from those with wrinkly skin or soft spots. To store potatoes, keep them in a cool dark place away from onions, but do not store in the refrigerator. Do not rinse or wash potatoes before storing them. Potatoes will last well for up to one month.
