The colour purple
They (the Sunday Mail) go on to say that 'When cooked without fat, it had been proved to reduce blood pressure and doesn't even make you put on weight.'
'The deep colour of the Purple Majesty variety comes from the same compounds found in blueberries, red cabbage and aubergines.'
The 'US researches found that when eaten by overweight patients with high blood pressure, it was as effective as rolled oats in lowering their reading. The study may help resurrect the reputation of the potato, seen by dieters as a food to avoid.'
Cheers and plant some purple tatties
