A baked potato, or jacket potato, is a potato that has been baked for eating. When well cooked, a baked potato has a fluffy interior and a crisp skin. It may be served with fillings and condiments such as butter, cheese or sour cream. Potatoes can be baked in a conventional gas or electric oven, a convection oven, a microwave oven, on a barbecue grill, or on/in an open fire. 


Potatoes are an ideal food for those seeking to improve their Nutritional intake within day-to-day diets. Providing a significant amount of fibre, potassium, folate, magnesium, copper & zinc, potatoes are a great and effective way of gaining some of your Nutritional essentials

Acrylamide is a chemical found in starchy foods that have been cooked at high temperatures. These include crisps, chips, bread and crispbreads. It was first discovered by scientists in Sweden in 2002
