About Organic Kestrel Potato
Organic Kestrel Potato from Real Foods. Attractive smooth skinned tubers with violet eyes. Kestrels are best known for this unique purple blush, a naturally occurring trait which is passed on from their parent variety, the Cara potato. Perfect for mashing, roasting, boiling and frying, Kestrels are a highly versatile variety with a delicious slightly-sweet flavour. Their even, oval shape and shallow eyes allows for easy preparation.
Despite the potatoes popular reputation as a high-carbohydrate, white starch food, they are in fact an exceptionally healthful low calorie, high fibre food that offers protection against cardiovascular disease and cancer. Potatoes also contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. They are also a good source of vitamin B6, copper, potassium and manganese.
