There are so many different entries on MFP and the internet that I am confused about how many calories are in one small baby red potato which weighs roughly one ounce.

Some say 100 calories per potato. I can believe that this could be true.

Anyone know the correct answer?

Appx five ounces of a russet is about 110 calories. I imagine that it's pretty similar to that. smile

After looking around the web at different sights it looks like this data is misleading. the 'baby' red potatoes that are 100 calories for one potato are actually the large version of the baby reds. The ones that are about the size of a russet potato. It looks like about 5 real baby reds are about 80 calories. Which makes more sense because around 5 real baby reds is about he same volume as 1 medium potato. The large 'baby' reds are 100 calories for 5.22 ounces (148g). So you can still use the entry, but go by weight.

But what is the ounce or gram? I think the OP is taking about the tiny red potatoes. Not the larger red ones.

Right, but those are about fist size potatoes, right? She is talking about the much smaller version of that potato.

See what i mean. VERY confusing!

I am talking about the ones that are about the size of a golf ball.

So are they 100 cal each? Or probably 100 cals for around 5 each?

I would say 100 cal for 5 golf ball size potatoes. It is very confusing. LOL

I know the little bitty potatoes you are talking about. Those are very yummy.
