Is it true a vegetable’s skin is the most nutritious part? | Human World | EarthSky.

“No, it’s not. Some older scientific studies showed that a potato skin, for example, was higher in mineral nutrients – but this result was shown to be due to soil adhering to the skin. Now it’s thought that the minerals in a potato are throughout the vegetable. And – in the case of potatoes – the main nutrient is starch. Plants store carbohydrates as starch, which can be broken down easily for energy. Potatoes also contain vitamin C and vitamin B-1. These nutrients are in greater concentration in the center of the potato.”
