Yukon Gold Potatoes and Health

The more intense yellow color of the flesh, the higher the vitamin A levels, which promotes good vision, healthy skin, and improved immune system. The peel stores goodly amounts of potassium, helping to reduce risk of stroke, as well as vitamin A. So scrub them gently and leave on the peels when cooking.

Potatoes also contain glutathione, an antioxidant that may help protect against cancer.
