Her Majesty – the Potato

Her Majesty – The Potato

You may smile and  ask yourself , why, this simple produce. Why is it a queen, a majesty. I am going to show you why and then you can understand why it gets just the title of a noble plant.

First of all, it is the number one vegetable  crop in the world. It is known almost everywhere and eaten in various styles.

This plant belongs to a group called nightshade plants. This group includes tomatoes, eggplants, peppers and tomatillos. They are the swollen part of the underground stem . This is called a tuber. It is designed to provide food for the green leafy portion of the plant.  If this plant is allowed to flower and the flower becomes a fruit,  this fruit that cannot be eaten and it resembles a tomato.

The potato brings numerous health benefits  Unfortunately, most people eat potatoes as French fries or potato chips, both full of  fat. Even the baked potatoes are not consumed just as such but filled with butter, sour cream, melted cheese or bacon.

If consumed with such a heavy load of fat, the potato is a potential contributor to a heart attack. Take away the extra fat . If eaten just plain, a baked potato is exceptionally healthful. It brings low calories, high fiber content and offers important protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer.

The potato is a very good source of vitamin C, a good source of vitamin B6, (which enhances your good mood) of minerals like copper, potassium, manganese and as already mentioned dietary fibers. A part from these ingredients, it contains a variety of compounds that protect against free radicals.

The Potato offers other astonishing qualities. There are 60 different kinds of phyto-chemicals and vitamins. They are contained in the flesh but also in the skin of potatoes be they grown wild or commercially. The idea of just being a starch-giver can definitely be abolished.

Analyses have shown that they offer a potential for lowering blood pressure and are second only to another less known plant.

Actually, potatoes have been grown for thousands of years .They originated in the Andean mountain region of South America. It is estimated that the potatoes have been cultivated by the Indians living in these areas for 4-7 thousand years already. Potatoes are one of the rare plants that can be grown at these high altitudes They therefore became a staple food for these people. The compounds are so numerous and healthful that the potatoes should be included in everybody’s diet as long as they are not consumed just as French fries.I guess that you now understand why the potato is called a queen. It is actually a star guest in many a kitchen around the globe
