Abstract

Proximate analysis was carried out on three varieties of potatoes (Solanum tuberosum), namely 'Russet Burbank', 'Red Gold', and 'Yellow Finn'. The parameters analyzed were moisture, ash, lipid, dietary fibre, protein, and carbohydrate content. The methods used were based on AOAC (1990) and James (1995). From the analytical results, 'Russet Burbank' contains the moisture, ash, lipid, dietary fibre, protein, and carbohydrate content of 80.88 ± 0.33 g, 1.45 ± 0.14 g, 0.09 ± 0.01 g,3.45 ± 0.19 g, 3.98 ± 0.14 g, and 13.60 ± 0.17 g over 100 g of fresh sample, respectively. Meanwhile, 'Red Gold' contains the moisture, ash, lipid, dietary fibre, protein, and carbohydrate content of 79.12 ± 0.12 g, 1.34 ± 0.09 g, 0.06 ± 0.02 g, 2.63 ± 0.21 g, 3.05 ± 0.11 g, and 16.43 ± 0.09 g per 100 g of fresh sample, respectively. Lastly, 'Yellow Finn' contains the moisture, ash, lipid, dietary fibre, protein, and carbohydrate content of 79.51 ± 0.02 g, 1.08 ± 0.07 g, 0.05 ± 0.01 g, 2.18 ± 0.07 g, 3.l6 ± 0.09 g, and 16.20 ± 0.17 g per 100 g of fresh sample, respectively. Comparatively, 'Russet Burbank' contains the highest amount of moisture, ash, lipid, total dietary fibre, and protein content. 'Red Gold' instead contains the highest amount of carbohydrate.
