By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

      Potato is a name derived from the native American-Indian word "patata."
      Here are some interesting facts about the potato:

  • excellent source of complex carbohydrates which release energy slowly, keeping the blood sugar level steadier and longer
  • high in fiber, thus adding the digestive system to absorb water and making one fully satisfied and less hungry
  • high in Vitamin C and potassium
  • great source of vitamin B6
  • free from fat, cholesterol, and saturate fat
       Tips for Preparing Potatoes
  • Wash potatoes thoroughly.
  • Bring water to a boil before adding potatoes to shorten the cooking time, thus preserving the vitamin C.
  • Boil potatoes with skin to preserve the nutrients.
  • Limit the fat and saturate fat contents used in potato-based diseases.
  • Use olive oil in dressing for potato salad.
  • Top baked potatoes with fat-free sour cream and lowfat cheeses.
  • Adjust recipe to eliminate or limit the use of butter stick, margarine, and cream.
