Did you know that it’s not a good idea to eat raw potatoes? While the vegetable is a staple in most of the cuisines, it’s not recommended to eat it before cooking.
This is because potatoes grow underground. While growing under the soil, the potatoes are often exposed to toxic substances in high magnitude when compared to other vegetables. Not only this, if consumed raw, the potatoes will be a burden for our digestive system due to its high starch content as digestion will take a long time.
When cooked, the starch is broken down and in turn, making it easy to digest.
