Alliance for Potato Research and Education

APRE was formed to unite the potato industry in a quest to educate consumers and others about potatoes and french fries as an enjoyable part of a healthy and balanced diet.

The Alliance is building a body of scientific research to support potato and french fry nutrition, and will use this information to educate the public that, when consumed in moderation, fries can be part of a healthy choice.

 Processors in Alberta deduct 1/2 a cent per cwt from grower shipments to go towards this research component.  The following is information presented by this group on their findings.
