- Steamed potatoes are of course rich in nutrients that the human body needs like potassium, phosphorus, B-complex vitamins and vitamin C being few of those. They are low in calories and fat, and their high fiber content helps you feel full soon.
- Contrary to the popular myth, potatoes are not innately fattening. If butter or sour cream is added to potatoes then the calories and fat grams increase drastically. When trying to lose weight, season them with herbs or low-calorie condiments instead.
About 300 grams of unpeeled potato has 0.3 grams of fat, 261 calories, and 6 grams of protein. If peeled before boiling, about a half gram of protein is lost but the calorie and fat content remain the same. Whether or not the potato is peeled, it has 5 grams of fiber and 3 grams of natural sugar.
