Savory Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

A recent study on the nutritional benefits of the humble potato was recently presented at the American Dietetic Association's (ADA) Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE).

Their researchers have found that white potatoes are the largest and most affordable source of potassium of any vegetable or fruit.

The high cost of meeting federal dietary guidelines for potassium, 4,700 mg per person per day, presents a challenge for consumers and health professionals, alike.

However, the cost of potassium-rich white potatoes was half that of most other vegetables.

The lead researcher Adam Drewnowski, from the University of Washington said that "Potatoes deserve credit for contributing to higher diet quality and increasing vegetable consumption," You can afford to meet key dietary guidelines if you include potatoes in your diet. Potatoes also play an important role in providing affordable nutrition. You can afford to meet key dietary guidelines if you include potatoes in your diet.

The study also found that putting potatoes on the plate did improve overall diet quality.
Individuals who consumed potatoes (baked, boiled and roasted) had higher intakes of potassium and vitamin C and consumed more total vegetables in a day compared to those who did not consume potatoes.
