Is the potatos peel a good source of nutrition?
I eat baked potatos and I was wondering if by eating the potato peel you get some extra nutrients?

Waht's in the potato peel?

I don't know if there's any extra nutrition, but I do know it contains extra fiber.

look at usda web page

its got a decent amount of carbs in, low protien and fat. they do not contain that much fibre.

Even though they are not high in VIT C, people used to eat a fiar amount of them in the past, so they got enough vit C due to quanity to eaten.
Thye provide quite a few other vitamins and minerals.
