Good news: Potatoes are an excellent source of fiber, potassium and vitamin C. Unless you eat the potatoes fairly simple with nothing, GI value does not matter. (It is important to note that the glycemic index is imperfect and controversial scale.) Potatoes with a high GI value becomes a meal with a low GI value if you just add a little olive oil, because the added fat helps the absorption of carbohydrates potatoes.
