[LISTEN] Why potatoes make the perfect brain food
Potatoes are not as bad as we are told, says Potatoes South Africa consultant dietitian Mbali Mapholi.
Mapholi explains potatoes are a great source of fibre and carbohydrates.
She says the brain uses about 5grams of glucose per hour and you get that glucose from high fibre carbs like potatoes.
So I think for full productivity of the brain at this [exam] time, potatoes for people who are saying they go on a low carbohydrates diet or no carbohydrates are missing out.Mbali Mapholi, Consultant Dietitian - Potatoes South Africa
