Myth: Potatoes are unhealthy.
FACT: Potatoes are a fresh, naturally healthy food.
Despite the fact that potatoes are the #3 most served dish in American homes, 41% of surveyed adults state that they feel potatoes are unhealthy. This is simply not true. In fact, Klondike Potatoes® have 45% of your daily requirement of Vitamin C along with 18% of your daily value of potassium. Klondike potatoes are full of phytonutrients, are a good source of fiber and B6 along with being naturally satiating. These potatoes have no sodium and promote good heart health. Potatoes are a superfood, but because of the negative implications of the diet craze, they have been cast in an unflattering light, even though the exact opposite is true.

About Klondike Potatoes:
Potandon has many exclusive varieties that offer thin, smooth skin so that they do not have to be peeled. This adds convenience to meal preparation. You could use the Klondike potatoes with their peels intact which also increases the nutrient content of the potato. Klondikes have a creamy yellow flesh and a buttery taste that can’t be beat. These potatoes lend themselves well to all types of cooking usages. They offer a different taste and texture from the russet potato and are worth a try in any dish you are preparing. Potandon also has these delicious varieties in baby potatoes called Klondike Gourmets which are available in a 1.5 lb. bag which is a perfect pick up for a meal. These smaller bags come in the red, yellow, purple and fingerling varieties. Klondike Rose and Klondike Goldust baby potatoes are also available in our fresh steamer bags in the grocers refrigerated produce section. These steamer potatoes are offered with four distinct flavors, Four Cheese, Roasted Garlic, Three Chile which is a delicious Southwest taste and Mesquite Smoked Bacon. Potandon is now offering some new recipes on their website www.klondikebrands.com and microsite.
