    No. according to several experts it is apparently a myth that the bulk of the nutrients come from potato skins. In fact just over 50 percent of such nutrients come from within the potato.

    The notion that most of the nutrients in a potato are found in the skin are untrue. On the contrary, the majority of the nutrients are found within the potato. Potatoes are quite healthy and provide much of the daily recommended allowance (RDA) of vitamins and minerals. Potatoes are a good source of potassium, iron, vitamin B, and even vitamin C. Potatoes are also a good source of fiber and contain no fat or sodium.

    The skin contains some things that aren’t in the rest of the potato.  For example the skin is the chief source of fiber.  True, there are many nutrients inside the potato itself though some escape during the course of being cooked.  Leaving the skin on the potato then is a good way to preserve the nutrients of the potato.
