Educating health professionals about Australian potatoes (PT19002)

Key research provider: Seedbed Media

What’s it all about?

This investment began in 2019 to provide credible, evidence-based information and resources to educate health professionals about the attributes and benefits of Australian potatoes. Potatoes are highly nutritious, being rich in vitamins B and C, dietary fibre and potassium, with several varieties also having a low to medium glycaemic index.

Key activities of the project include, but are not limited to:

  • Developing a science-based digital platform housing research and resources that can be shared with health professionals including dietitians, nutritionists, GPs, students of health-related disciplines, naturopaths, personal trainers and health coaches

  • Building engagement with health professionals via social media channels

  • Testing the nutritional profile of several Australian potato varieties to ensure up to date information is being disseminated by the project.
