  • ENHANCE YOUR PROTECTION FROM OXIDATIVE STRESS AND INFLAMATION

    We have a quantity of the purple-skinned, yellow-fleshed Peter Wilcox potatoes left for this spring's planting or for consumption. Personally, we love the Peter Wilcox. Simply stated, Peter Wilcox is the best tasting potato you will ever put in your mouth. For that alone, we recommend it to anyone who likes to eat potatoes. But we are obligated to say that Peter Wilcox is also among those 'colorful' varieties with additional healthful and nutritional characteristics. Because it has both purple skin and yellow flesh, it falls into the most healthful of all potatoes. Its phytonutrients (both antioxidants and carotenoids) provide enhanced protection from oxidative stress, inflammation and immune status. As such Peter Wilcox would seem to qualify as a functional food, one that provides more than minimum nutritional value.
