Like other members of the potato family (Solanum tuberosum), purple potatoes come from a tuber plant native to the Andes mountain region in South America.

They wear a darkish blue-purple outer skin and an inner flesh that presents brilliant purple, even after cooking.

They have a denser texture and slightly nuttier, earthier flavor than white potatoes.

Like other colorful fruits and vegetables, purple potatoes’ bright color is a telltale sign that they’re high in antioxidants. In fact, they have two to three times more antioxidant activity than white or yellow potatoes.

Antioxidants are plant compounds that can protect your cells from the damaging effects of oxidative stress.

Purple potatoes are especially rich in polyphenol antioxidants called 'anthocyanins'. They’re the same type of antioxidant found in blueberries and blackberries.

How do you cook purple potatoes? 
Purple potatoes cook much like regular potatoes: you can boil, mash, bake, or roast them. 

Did you know?
There are more than 200 varieties of potatoes sold throughout the United States. Each of these varieties fit into one of seven potato type categories: russet, red, white, yellow, blue/purple, fingerling, and petite.

We all know that we should be eating the color of the rainbow. But why?

Every single color in the plant has its unique micro nutrient called phytochemical. Phyto comes from Greek word  (φυτόν) meaning 'plant' and these are the natural
components produced by plants, generally to help them resist fungi, bacteria and plant virus infections, and also consumption by insects and other animals. Some phytochemicals have been used as poisons and others as traditional medicine. It is that powerful.

These brightly colored veggies not only have the powerful health benefits but can also add color, fun and flavors to your table!

Nutritional Information of Purple Potatoes

Potatoes often get a bad rap because of their high starch content, but they contain many other important nutrients and can be a very healthy addition to your diet.

Purple potatoes have a nutrient content similar to that of other varieties of potatoes in the Solanum tuberosum family, though their mineral content can vary depending on the soil in which they were grown.

There is a misconception that all of the nutrients in potatoes are found in their skin. In fact, more than half of their nutrients are found in their flesh.

A 3.5-ounce (100-gram) serving of cooked potato with the skin provides:

Calories: 87
Protein: 2 grams
Carbs: 20 grams
Fiber: 3.3 grams
Fat: less than 1 gram
Manganese: 6% of the Daily Value (DV)
Copper: 21% of the DV
Iron: 2% of the DV
Potassium: 8% of the DV
Vitamin B6: 18% of the DV
Vitamin C:14% of the DV

Interestingly, potatoes have more potassium than bananas. In addition, a serving of potatoes provides 3 grams of fiber, from both the flesh and skin, and they’re naturally low in sodium
