“Athletic performance is an exciting area of research opportunities for many food products, like potatoes, especially here in our country, where we are so dependent on rice when it comes to carbohydrate source,” said nutrition coach Jeaneth Aro at an event hosted recently by Potatoes USA, the marketing arm of the US potato industry. The event opened with a workshop on potato nutrition and culminated with a food-tasting activity led by celebrity Chef Sau del Rosario.
