How improper storage can make potatoes toxic

Potatoes No Longer Refrigerator Danger: Debunking the Myth and Keeping Your Potatoes Safe

According to the website for food quality, it was previously advised against storing potatoes in the refrigerator. However, recent studies have shown that there is little to no difference in the amount of toxic acrylamides when potatoes are stored in the fridge or not.

To prevent the formation of harmful substances, potatoes should be kept in a cool and dry place, away from light. The green color on the skin of larger potatoes can be peeled off entirely if necessary, while smaller ones with green skin should be discarded altogether.

It’s important to note that potatoes are rich in potassium and can help replenish any loss of this mineral in the body after vomiting or diarrhea. Some minerals may leach into the cooking water when boiling potatoes, so those unable to eat due to these conditions can try drinking the water used for cooking.
