    You are mixing two completely different views of a food product. As a plant, it is a vegetable (actually, a root vegetable). Nutritionally, it is a starch. Corn is also a starch.

    Potatoes are naturally delegated a vegetable, however they are grouped healthfully as a starchy food,' says a DoH representative. 'This is on the grounds that when eaten as a major aspect of a supper, they are commonly utilized instead of other bland starches, for example, bread, pasta or rice.

    While potatoes are a starch, they are also a vegetable. The word originated in Old French and meant any plant. Over time, it has been refined down to 'an edible plant'.

    Sticklers insist that a potato is a root. It is not. It is a tuber. The roots of the potato plant extend beyond the starchy tuber. Every part of the potato plant is poisonous except the tuber.

    It's a vegetable because it belongs to the vegetable kingdom, i.e. not animal or mineral.

    It's a starch because it's high in complex carbohydrates. (Which is what we call 'starch'.)
