There isn’t much of a difference between sweet potatoes and white potatoes from a raw nutritional value standpoint. They both contain around the same amount of calories, protein, and carbs, so don’t make your decision based on the assumption that sweet potato fries are the lighter choice just because they’re advertised as such. Sweet potatoes only come out on top for being higher in fiber, Vitamin A, and calcium. They keep you full longer than white potatoes do and contain even more Vitamin A than is recommended to consume in a day.

 

What many people don’t realize is that when sweet potatoes are deep-fried, they end up being essentially no healthier than regular french fries. If you’re trying to be more health-conscious, try baking or air frying your own fries at home for a much healthier option than the deep-fried ones at the restaurants.
