Potatoes better for body than other superfoods11th May 2012
Researchers have said the potato is a "wonder food" and could be better for health than beetroots, bananas, avocados and nuts.
An independent nutritionist, Sigrid Gibson, carried out research on the behalf of the Potato Council and said: "We think of bananas as being a good source of potassium, and they are, but potatoes make a more significant contribution to the diet." The council's dietitian told the Daily Express: "It is important to have a wide variety of foods in your diet but sometimes our heads are turned by new things and we underestimate old favourites like potatoes and how they compare to other, often more expensive 'superfoods'."
