Is Red Potato Nutrition better than White Potato?

Red potatoes price in the USA

I just knew red potatoes in the USA, eventhough its around since hundred years ago. Spanish found this potatoes in Perus, then brought them to Europe in 1560s.

American farmers developed a new breed called “red Pontiac” or “Dakota chief,” then export to the following countries:

- Uruguay
- Canada
- Australia
- Algeria
- the Philippines
- Venezuela
- Mexico


Almost all groceries sold red potatoes.

Price of red and white potatoes is not much different in my favorite groceries. 79 cent for red, and 78 cent for white potatoes per pound.

In term of nutrition, both red and white potatoes is almost the same. They contain:
- about 150’s calories
- vitamin C
- Potassium
- Carbohydrates.

However, compared to white potatoes that red potatoes contain much more following nutrients:
- vitamin B6
- sodium
- cholesterol free.
- less starchy

As far as I know people use red potatoes for soup, salads, roasting cooking and chowders.

Which one do you like: red or white or both potatoes?

  2. I love potatoes. Red potatoes over here in Ireland are called Roosters and they are floury and they don't hold their shape when they are cooked. They are good for mashed potatoes or in soup, not good for potato salad. The white potatoes are marked on the package as salad potatoes. I love them all. :)

  3. I like them all too. I agree with Bill about different potatoes for different kinds of dishes, but to just eat with butter, my favorites are the little fingerlings.

  5. I like both kinds of potatoes. I didn't know that red potatoes had a few more health benefits than the white ones. Thanks for sharing. :)

  9. Dearest Tanza,
    We use them both and it really doesn't matter much.
    The new potatoes can be boiled in the skin and used for a salad or whatever.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  11. I love red potato, as well. Here in Russia we always can purchase it, but I don't know where it has been grown.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  12. For some reason, I was always under the impression that red potatoes are healthier so I gravitate to them. Personally, I try to avoid potatoes because I'm always trying to lose weight. I do love them though and I do make vegan potato salad.
