China on January 7, 2015 has really included potatoes as a staple diet after rice, wheat and corn. The addition of potatoes as another staple food was consistent with the government's policy of adjusting the agriculture structure to achieve sustainable development. As potato is easy to grow even in barren lands, it would also guarantee food supply. The potato is of higher nutritional value compared with rice and wheat flour, which lose considerable dietary fiber and nutrients during processing. China will also turn potatoes into noodles, steamed bread and other staple food products.
