Vitamin C in potatoes

There is a good amount of vitamin C in potatoes. Although it is less than, for example, in a lemon, due to the massive consumption of potatoes, they are the ones that provide us with the most of it. It is estimated that 37% of the vitamin C we consume comes from potatoes. 1)

Rose hips are the most nutritious source of natural vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) surrounded by flavonoids. The vitamin C content of rosehips is many times higher than that of berries or citrus fruits.

The effects of vitamin A deficiency were already known in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome and were referred to as “chicken blindness” or night blindness. The disease was treated with the boiled or raw liver. It was not until the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that a link between poor nutrition and the development of chicken blindness was established. 5)
