A cold potato contains so-called 'resistant starch'. These carbohydrates are not properly digested by our body, but they are digested by the bacteria in the colon. As a result, they are not absorbed into our bloodstream as glucose, but arrive more or less undigested in our intestines, an ideal food for healthy intestinal bacteria, a pre-biotic.
Never boil a potato with salt in the water. The salt extracts the potassium from the additive. People who are overweight, have elevated blood sugar or diabetes should rather avoid warm potatoes. They can eat cold potatoes in moderation. A potato combined with an egg is one of the best protein combinations to eat.
