New Variety of Innate Potato Approved


The J.R. Simplot Company has completed a voluntary consultation with the FDA on their first generation of Innate Snowden variety potatoes (V11).

The FDA concluded that the potato is not materially different in composition, safety and other relevant parameters from potato-derived food and feed currently on the market. Health Canada also said it had no objection to the sale of food derived from these potatoes.

The Innate potatoes have less bruising, fewer black spots and reduced asparagine, which means less acrylamide when the potatoes are cooked at high temperatures.
