Red potatoes are particularly healthy because of the thin, nutrient filled skins, which are loaded with fiber, B vitamins, iron and potassium. Much of the nutritional value of a potato is found in its skin.
Red potatoes have smooth, thin light-red skin with a white inside and a sweeter, creamier taste and texture. …have less starch and more sugars than russet potatoes (and are therefore stickier). ... Try them in your salads, soups, chowders, and fried potato dishes.
