Very interesting is the report by Dr. Horia Goza (UW - retired) published in the Badger Common'Tater that shows how antioxidant levels in dark potato flesh are higher than in white flesh, and are enhanced with cooking! In dark purple flesh the antioxidant levels may be ninety times higher! More information can be found by googling Kenosha Potato Project.
