Surprising Food Facts

This is from an article in the New York Times:

There is more vitamin C in a glass of orange juice made from frozen concentrate than in freshly squeezed juice. . . . .A five-ounce potato provides just 100 calories, for which you get 35 percent of a day's recommended vitamin C, 20 percent of the vitamin B6, 15 percent of the iodine, 10 percent each of niacin, iron and copper, and 6 percent of the protein.

Also, neat facts about beans, cabbage and more.
