Potato is one of the most popular foods in the world. For many consumers, however, it contains too many carbohydrates. Europlant adapts to the low-carb nutrition trend and is now offering two potato varieties with fewer carbohydrates: the mild, mainly firm-cooking Coronada, which is branded as Linella, and the tasty, firm-cooking Montana.

“The demand is overwhelming. People who value a low-carbohydrate diet now have an alternative,” says Joerg Renatus, managing director of Europlant Pflanzenzucht GmbH.

The innovative Coronada and Montana varieties were developed through selective breeding. The average relative energy content is at least 30 percent reduced in relation to fixed standards.

Both varieties are grown by specially selected, qualified farmers who are certified by German QS standards.

Before grading and packing, every lot is checked for its ingredients by neutral experts. Only if all legal requirements are met can a lot become part of Europlant’s “lower-carb” program.
