Potato Nutrition

A by-the-numbers look at how potatoes can power athletic performance¹:

26 grams of carbohydrate: Count on the quality carbs in potatoes for optimal mental and physical performance.² ³ Plus, potatoes contain as much if not more of several essential vitamins and minerals than spaghetti, brown rice or whole wheat bread (compared on a per-serving basis).

620 Milligrams of Potassium: With more potassium than a medium-size banana, potatoes are perfect for aiding muscle, cardiovascular and nervous system function during long endurance events.

110 Calories for Energy: Easily digestible and more energy dense than any other popular vegetable, potatoes are a good choice to fuel the demands of racing a triathlon.
