How Lo can you go?

Food - - Food for thought -

Any­one re­luc­tantly avoid­ing spuds for health rea­sons can re­joice – you can now en­joy guilt-free potato sal­ads, roasties and tat­tie-topped pies… within rea­son. Lo­ta­toes are a new breed of pota­toes that look and taste like a reg­u­lar spud, but with 40 per cent less carbs. In an in­no­va­tion that has been five years in the mak­ing, Lo­ta­toes are cre­ated by cross-breed­ing dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties. “Re­cent trends have put pota­toes out of favour, of­ten re­placed with lower carb or calo­rie al­ter­na­tives,” says nu­tri­tion­ist Abbie O’rourke. “Lo­ta­toes put them back at the top of the shop­ping list. They’re nu­tri­tious, de­li­cious and a great source of Vi­ta­min B6, potas­sium and fi­bre.” Lo­ta­toes are sold in Count­down su­per­mar­kets in 2kg packs.
