Potatoes found to have the Highest Nutritional Value per Penny

Fruits and vegetables are an important part of the human diet, but it is concerning that these items are not affordable. A recent study found that potatoes and beans provide the most nutrients per penny than most other raw vegetables. These starchy vegetables provide better nutritional value for the money. In addition, one medium-size (5.3 ounce) skin-on potato contains just 110 calories per serving, has more potassium (620g) than a banana (450g), provides almost half the daily value of vitamin C (45 percent), and contains no fat, sodium or cholesterol.
