EUROPLANT launches the Lower Carb Potato

Innovation in German food retail trade

Lueneburg, February 2021 | Potato is one of the most popular foods. 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 varieties Coronada and Montana were developed through selective breeding. The average relative energy content is at least 30 % 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 single lot is checked for its ingredients by neutral experts. Only if all legal requirements are met a lot can become part of our “lower carb” program.
