The arrival of the Ontario-grown Carisma potato from EarthFresh Farms gives food lovers an alternative to other potatoes in grocery stores. Farmed from traditional seed and without the use of biotechnology, the Carisma potato has been found to have a lower glycemic response (GR), meaning it does not cause the rapid spike in blood sugar that normally comes from eating carbohydrate-rich foods.
