A 1/2-cup serving of sweet potato provides more than 300 percent the daily value for vitamin A and 33 percent of the DV for vitamin C. By comparison, the white potato contains no vitamin A and has only 21 percent of the daily value for vitamin C. Both vitamin A and C supports immune health and act as important antioxidants to protect your body against oxidation from free radicals.” (Livestrong.com)

“The white potato, however, is a better source of folate, meeting 10 percent of the daily value, while sweet potatoes contain 2 percent of the vitamin. Folate supports red blood cell production and plays a pivotal role in the prevention of neural tube defects such as spina bifida during pregnancy. Both types of potatoes are a good source of the mineral potassium, while sweet potatoes have more manganese than white potatoes.” (Livestrong.com)
