Potatoes and Health

People often ask, are potatoes good for you? The answer is “Yes!”

Ore-Ida Potatoes contain protein, dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin C and other nutrients, so you can feel good about serving them to your family. And if you’re watching your calories or need to avoid gluten, look no further – nearly half of our products are gluten-free, several are low-fat or nonfat and our Golden Crinkles are just 120 calories per serving.

Read on for more nutritional facts about Ore-Ida potatoes. We just might surprise ya! 

Gluten-Free Potatoes

About 1 in every 100 people can have an adverse reaction to foods containing gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and other grains. If you or your children are gluten-sensitive, it can be tough to find gluten-free foods that you all enjoy.

Well, Ore-Ida has got you covered! We have over 30 delicious gluten-free potato products, so it’s easy to get your potato fix.

Low-Fat Potatoes

We’re not kidding.

Did you know that potatoes are naturally fat-free and cholesterol-free, and (surprise, surprise!) so are many of our Ore-Ida products? We’ve also got lots of delicious varieties that are low in total fat, saturated fat and trans-fat.

Let’s face it – when you’re trying to eat better, it’s a lot easier if you can still enjoy some of your favorite foods, like Ore-Ida French Fries, hash browns, Tater Tots and mashed potatoes.

Low-Sodium Potatoes

No need to get your blood pressure boiling.

Ok, we know. People usually don’t think “low-sodium” when they think potatoes.

But we also know that some people need to watch their salt intake for health reasons, and that’s why we offer several low-sodium products, including two of our most popular hash brown varieties.
