This Mashed Potato By Any Other Name Is Healthy

March 21, 2014

In this “watch your carbs” world, the potato has gotten a bad rap. Nutritionally perfect, the potato has more potassium than a banana, is fat-free, cholesterol –free, rich in fiber and has approximately 150 calories in a medium spud with half of your Vitamin C requirement. Make it a colored potato like a yellow, sweet or purple and you hit the nutritional jackpot. Colorful potatoes provide carotenoids and flavonoids, pigments that are missing in white potatoes, and help in cancer protection.

A potato variety on the rise is the Dutch Baby Yellow, which is winning over chefs on the west coast because of its creamy rich flesh and versatility. Inspired to try the Dutch Baby Yellow, we thought, “why not make a rich mashed potato using our dairy flavors and take out all the guilt?” So that’s exactly what we did. We substituted the expected butter with heart-healthy extra-virgin olive oil and using our natural Parmesan cheese flavors along with a natural heavy cream flavor, produced a mashed potato that will satisfy any carb craving.

These natural flavors will add a creamy richness and will take the humble mashed potato to a new level of comfort and health.
