The potato is a good source of dietary energy and some micronutrients. But balanced diets need to include other vegetables and whole grain foods. Potato is low in fat. The potato is a moderate source of iron, and its high vitamin C content promotes iron absorption. It is a good source of vitamins B1, B3 and B6 and minerals such as potassium, phosphorus and magnesium, and contains folate, pantothenic acid and riboflavin. Potatoes also contain dietary antioxidants, which may play a part in preventing diseases related to ageing, and dietary fiber, which benefits health. Whole wheat contains the powerful antioxidant, vitamin E, which protects fat-containing substances, like cell membranes, brain cells and fatty molecules, from free radical damage. In turn, the vitamins are essential for immune system function, cancer prevention and blood glucose control for both healthy and diabetic people. A rich intake of whole wheat is significantly linked to lowering the risk of wheezing and asthma in children and bronchial hyper-responsiveness (BHR), a condition where narrowing of the airways increase.
