Dr. Potato, this is a nice display, but you say there’s something wrong with this picture. What is it?
Potatoes should never be stored on ice. The cold temperature will convert the starch into sugar, making the potatoes taste sweet. If stored this way the potato may actually freeze and break down when a consumer purchases these for home use. If made into French fries or oven fries they will turn dark or caramelize prematurely, even before being fully cooked inside. Dark fries are almost always a sign of over cooking or using potatoes that were stored below 40° F.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
