Is the skin of the potatoe really the most nutritious part?

    Yes they are the most nutritious part. Most fruits and vegetables have the majority of their nutrients in their skins.  In the case of potatoes, they contain antixoidants which are good to prevent DNA damage from free radicals, and they also help keep nutrients in the potato during cooking.

    Good question. From this source, it says “potatoes are a good source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber, especially if you eat the skin”. So I guess the skin is the healthiest part. Hope this helps

    Potaote skins are really the most nutritious part.  As with most fruits and vegetables the skins hold more nutrients than the “meat” of the fruit often does.  Potato skins in particular have antioxidants in them which help protect your DNA from damage caused by free radicals.  Leaving the skins on during cooking also helps keep the nutrients in the fleshy part from leaching out.
