Australia: Healthy spud marketed overseas

A potato proven to be safe for diabetics will soon be on dinner plates in Idaho, the mecca of spuds in the United States. The ‘Carisma’ has been around for some time, but became more prominent when chef and potato farmer Graham Liney took up the challenge to find a spud that was okay for diabetics and pre-diabetics to eat. Having farmed potatoes near Crookwell in southern NSW for around 30 years, Mr Liney wanted to prove to Professor Jennie Brown-Miller, from Sydney University, that people with the condition could eat potatoes.
