Potatoes are incredibly popular and widely consumed in the United States. It is the fourth most commonly consumed plant that humans ingest after the other staples such as rice, wheat and corn, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. These food items are also huge staples in many types of worldwide cuisines, such as Asian, African and South American countries. Interesting enough, these countries also largely suffer from these types of vitamin deficiencies. By in large the reason for that is lack of amount of food they readily have access to.
