If You Notice This on a Potato, Don’t Eat It #shorts

If you reach into a sack of potatoes and find that they’ve turned green, you’re faced with the conundrum of whether or not to throw them away.

Some throw the green potatoes away, others remove the green parts and use them anyway.

However, green potatoes aren’t only undesirable. They can also be toxic.

When potatoes are exposed to light, they begin to produce chlorophyll, the green pigment that gives many plants and algae their color.

The chlorophyll that gives some potatoes their green color is completely harmless. It’s even found in many plant foods you eat every day.

But the green color of potatoes can also be a sign that something less desirable and potentially harmful is being produced – a toxic plant compound called solanine.

Peeling green potatoes can help reduce solanine content, but once a potato has turned green, it’s best to throw it away.

Inspect potatoes for greening and damage before you buy them, and store them in a cool, dark place so they don’t turn green before you consume them.
