Purple Potatoes: 5 Surprising Benefits

The other day I ran into some purple potatoes for the first time and were they absolutely scrumptious… since then I’ve been totally hooked. So that got me curious…are they actually better for me than white and yellow potatoes? Come to find out …. yeah!!! They are, here are 5 surprising Benefits about eating purple potatoes, besides the fact they look super cool.

😍 Purple potatoes are packed with antioxidants, have a blueish black skin and stay brilliantly purple after cooking, and have more POTASSIUM than bananas.
👉 Purple is better for BLOOD SUGAR with a Glycemic Index of 77 versus yellow potatoes has a GI of 81, and white potatoes have a GI of 93. Because of their high polyphenol count, it may reduce the absorption of carbs into your system.
💖 Purple potatoes have 3x the ANTIOXIDANT (anthocyanins) activity than white and yellow potatoes. Which can help reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.
👀 May reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and high blood pressure as the polyphenols and antioxidants found in purple potatoes helps relax the arterial blood vessels.
✨ Purple potatoes like all potatoes contain resistant starch. This start is resistant to digestion doesn’t go into the bloodstream the way regular starch does. And your gut biotics love this kind of starch to keep you healthy.

  1. I’ve always loved purple potatoes (not knowing all their benefits until reading your email this morning) and have either oven pan roasted them -brushed with your oil and some seasoning- or boiled them, – again using your oil – in which I toss them with some salted seasonings. Kuddos to you both getting into Publix with cooking classes. Shop with them ALWAYS.
