Pourquoi les pommes de terre verdissent

Greening is a color change in the potato when it is exposed to light (for example the neon light) for a long period of time.  Scientifically, what happens is that the green part of the potato, contains a toxic  substance called glycoalcaloïdes.  It is preferable to not eat the green part of the potato.

That is why Groupe Ethier takes good care of their potatoes, to prevent the greening, as well as in their warehouses, their packing procedures and by choosing the proper packaging material.
