Lots of people, including me, avoid potato in their diet. Hard to understand why when according to YORKTEST a potato intolerance, is the least likely to come back on their intolerance test results. Out of eight thousand food intolerance test resuts less than 1% tested had a potato intolerance.
I have recently been reintroducing some amounts of potatoes back into my diet and so far I am having a bit of a foodie revelation. Can’t tell you how good even just a small jacket potato tasted last night with a huge plate of veggies, it was a revelation.
One of my food intolerance’s is gluten, which means lots of foods are out that often accompany dishes and provide the carbohydrates of a meal. So having potato back in my life does make things a little easier, especially when a few chips are thrown in the mix. I was never really a big chip fan before, but a small chips side dish, in what I call a posh pub, now and again really are going down a treat so its a relief to know that I don’t have a potato intolerance.
Lots of people avoid potato, due to the high numbers of people now on low carb diets, meaning the potato is consigned to the sin bin for lots of people. So what is the low down on the humble potato and why does it get such a bad wrap. With this news on the potato intolerance low down I am on a mission to investigate. So people let us know your potato thoughts and stories.
