Wholesome goodness of U.S. Potatoes

I enjoy potato dishes a lot personally. For good reason, potatoes are an appreciated staple food in countries worldwide. In particular, U.S. Potatoes are delicious, extremely versatile, and packed with nutrients. There are plenty of ways to prepare and eat this nutrient-dense vegetable, from baked potatoes to mashed potatoes and everything in between.

The fact that U.S. Potatoes are a healthier option is one of their main advantages. They are the perfect food for you who are seeking to maintain a healthy diet because they are free of cholesterol, sodium, and fat. They are a low-calorie food that can help in weight management because each serving only has 110 calories, which is approximately the same as a medium-sized potato.

U.S. Potatoes are not only low in calories but also higher in energy than any other popular vegetable. About 30% of your daily value of vitamin C, which is crucial for boosting the immune system of the body, can be found in a medium-sized U.S. Potato. Our immune systems can be naturally strengthened by vitamin C, which can help us fight off illnesses like the common cold.

Vitamin B6, which is crucial for healthy cell function, is another impressive nutrient found in U.S. Potatoes. 10% of the recommended daily value of vitamin B6 is found in one medium potato. A critical component of metabolism, the production of blood cells, and cell health is played by vitamin B6. Additionally, each serving of potatoes contains 3 grams of plant-based protein, an essential component of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissues.

Potassium, a mineral that is essential to many bodily processes, is another nutrient that can be found in abundance in U.S. Potatoes. A medium-sized potato, including the skin, has 620 milligrams of potassium per serving, which is 15% higher than a medium-sized banana. Potassium supports healthy hydration levels, controls blood pressure, and supports healthy muscle and nerve function.

U.S. Potatoes are extremely versatile and can be cooked in a variety of ways. They offer countless cooking options for meals, including baking, steaming, boiling, frying, and grilling. U.S. Potatoes are a delicious and wholesome addition to any meal, whether they are served as a side dish, the main course, or in a salad.

I really like how versatile, tasty, and nutrient-dense potatoes areโ€”they have lots of advantages for your health. They are a high-nutrient food that is low in calories, fat, and cholesterol and high in vitamins, minerals, and plant-based protein. U.S. Potatoes are a great option whether you want to enhance your general health or just enjoy a delicious meal.

U.S. Potatoes Boosts Athletic Performance in Twincity Marathon 2022

Twincity Marathon 2022 flagged off on 23-24 July 2022 in Persiaran Flora, Cyberjaya

I feel so delighted knowing that there so many people participated in the Twincity Marathon 2022 held on 23-24 July 2022 in Persiaran Flora, Cyberjaya. I used to be a long-distance runner too and a proud finisher of three half marathons. Running long distance like any other exercise requires the right food to provide nutrients and energy.

For your information, potatoes are a nutrient-dense vegetable that provides the energy, fiber, potassium and Vitamin C which boost sport performances and help fuel people who do sports or lead an active lifestyle. Recent research findings indicated that potatoes are found to have the nutrients that could benefit fitness buffs, marathoners and sportspersons. Isn’t this great?

Potatoes USA took on the role of a key sponsor of this Twincity Marathon 2022. An outdoor tent was erected, with various personnel serving U.S. potato products to the 4,000 runners in both the full and half marathons. 

The U.S. mashed potatoes served are aimed to help runners replenish energy levels and nutrients needed after the marathon. Educational materials on potato power nutrition to improve sports performance were also distributed at the event. 

This event was also graced by the participation of His Excellency U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia, Mr. Brian D. McFeeters, 61 years of age, who took part in the half marathon (21km run). โ€œI am delighted to see Potatoes USA as a sponsor of this marathon and glad to have the information that potatoes are healthy, high in potassium, Vitamin C and fiber โ€“ which are great for post recovery,โ€ quipped Mr. Brian. โ€œSo now, maybe Malaysian can get to enjoy more potatoes like what we do in the U.S.,โ€ he continued.

Clocking an impressive marathon finishing time of 2.27 hours, Brian showed that with proper diet and fuel, at his age, he could still beat many younger Malaysians in the half marathon. Despite his busy schedule, he exercises regularly and maintains a healthy diet with the help of U.S. potatoes.

Max Lim, 51, a writer in KL loves to run and is a familiar face at most marathons in town. โ€œAs a runner, I love U.S. potatoes because they are a nutritional powerhouse that help me stay fueled for my runs. They are quite easy to digest and reduce hunger pangs during a long or intense run. Furthermore, they are tasty and can be prepared in many ways โ€“ there are no limit to the versatility of the U.S. potatoes,โ€ enthused Max.  

Runner Kelly Chin, 45 years old, said she enjoys eating U.S. Potatoes for her carbo energy, as it is a healthier alternative. โ€œPotatoes are one of the must-haves in my kitchen because they are versatile, nutrient-dense, and energy packed food. This helps to fuel my workouts and runs,โ€ she explained.

Over the past 40-50 years, numerous studies had been conducted and suggested that carbohydrates are a primary macronutrient for sustaining and improving athletic performance. According to Nutrition Today, a US journal, it is suggested that a balanced diet high in natural, quality carbohydrate rich foods like nutrient-densed potatoes may be optimal to improving physical performance among elite endurance athletes. 

Here are some key facts about the potato power:

  • 26 grams of carbohydrate โ€“ Potatoes are a nutrient-dense quality carbohydrate, important for optimal physical and mental performance as the primary fuel for your brain and a key source of energy for muscles. And, because your bodyโ€™s own stores of carbohydrate are limited and may be depleted โ€“ even in a single session of intense and/or prolonged exerciseโ€“ itโ€™s important to replenish them.
  • 620 Milligrams of Potassium โ€“ A medium-sized (148g) potato, with the skin-on, provides more potassium than a banana, no fat, no sodium, and no cholesterol. Potatoes are perfect for aiding muscle, cardiovascular and nervous system function during long endurance events.
  • 30% of daily value of Vitamin C โ€“ Potatoes are an excellent source of Vitamin C which helps to boost the immune system and aids in collagen production, a major muscle tissue component.
  • 3 grams of plan-based protein โ€“ Protein is a key component of muscle and an important nutrient for performance.
  • 2 grams of fiber (7% daily value) โ€“ Fiber helps regulate blood glucose and increase satiety, making one feel full longer.
  • 110 Calories for Energy โ€“ Easily digestible and more energy dense than any other popular vegetable, potatoes are a good choice to fuel the demands of racing a marathon.

Time to boost your performance with Potatoes USA!
