Jersey Royals .....

Whilst preping tea last night I noticed that the bag of Jersey Royal potatoes I opened had the following statement;

"Did you know that Pototoes have a lot less fat than Rice or Pasta"

Question is - How much less are we talking here?

I am on a cut at the moment and have been using Rice and Pasta as my main source of carbs..... Are these boiled potatoes a better option?

    Who cares? It's not as if rice or pasta are high-fat foods anyway.

    That's kind of my point - I didn't think they were.

    My question really is "Are these boiled potatoes a better option?"

    Do they have anything that the Rice and Pasta doesn't and vice versa?

    I suspect that they are full of potatoey goodness like Vit C, minerals like potassium & stuff - provided you don't boil 'em to death! See www.nutritiondata.com if you want to know exactly what spuds (and rice and pasta) contain.

    no not really mate,

    they are a starchy carb food, their fat content is not worth worrying about.

    its like saying "chicken, its lower carbs than tuna!"

    i dont know if thats true btw
