Potatoes
vs. pasta

The potato is currently the third most important food crop in the world. In our regular infographics we compare our favourite tuber to other popular food groups, in this edition to pasta. Who will emerge from this battle?

A comparison with pasta highlights the all-round character of the potato. It is everybody’s friend and shows of his good sides when it comes to nutritional values, water requirement and growing opportunities. A good end score for our beloved potato!
