The potato is the most nutritious of all the world’s starchy food crops with more protein, vitamins and minerals than rice, wheat,sorghum or corn and is a good source of antioxidants and phytochemicals. With consumers becoming increasingly aware of the association of diet, nutrition and health, potatoes have the potential to become an important dietary source of bioactive ingredients, i.e., functional food., Thus, potatoes may be an important source in the prevention, management and treatment of chronic diseases (e.g., obesity, Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease). This presentation will give an overview of the various bioactive ingredients found in potatoes and review some of the research which is currently being conducted.
