HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN A POTATO?




Potatoes are one of the great British staple foods, and extremely versatile as a cooking ingredient. Boiled, baked, mashed, sauteed or fried we can't get enough of them, but are they good for us or will they make you fat? Of course, whatever you decide to fry in lard and then eat isn't going to be considered a particularly healthy choice, but is the problem with the lard or is it with the potato?

To find out the difference check out the calorific results below.
