Q. This is a nutrition question that wasn’t answered on your (very comprehensive) FAQ page. My mother was recently placed on a low-sodium diet. We enjoy eating baked potatoes at restaurants, and some of the establishments we frequent salt the skin of the potatoes before baking. We understand there to be very little sodium in an unsalted baked potato. However, if one were to eat a baked potato prepared with a salted skin, and did not eat the skin (only the inside), is much of that sodium absorbed? Or does it primarily remain on the skin and the inside could be viewed as having relatively low sodium content? I’m hoping that a nutritionist or food science associated with your commission might be able to provide perspective on this, because we really would like to continue to enjoy baked potatoes at restaurants.
Q. We had fish fry at church last night, we got there about noon, washed and wrapped 170 potatoes in tin foil and baked them in a confection oven till they were 210 degrees F and then kept them in a cooler, until the fish fry began at 5pm. The insides had all turned brown. What did we do wrong? There must be some way diners keep baked potatoes for a long time without this happening. Any help you can give us would be appreciated.
