Beneficial Traits from Other Potatoes
We’ve used proven modern biotechnology techniques to bring together some of the best traditional potato traits from different types of potatoes. The result is the White Russet™ potato. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have extensively reviewed the first generation of White Russet™ potatoes and found them to be just as safe and nutritious as other potatoes currently on the market.
The All-Potato Traits Difference
The plant biotechnology used in the White Russet™ potato creates a precise improvement of specific traits by silencing genes already present in the potato.
Farm Grown Goodness
White Russet™ potatoes are farm-grown potatoes, bred with seed potatoes and traditional farming methods. They are improved versions of Russet Burbank and Ranger Russet varieties, with less bruising and browning and significantly less waste.
