Well i have been advised and advising others that its 1pt per 100g of potato, but is this 100g cooked weight or raw? because i believe potatos are lighter once cooked due to some of the water being cooked out.

i just had a jacket potato which i weighed before i put it in the microwave and it was 250g so i pointed it at 2.5 pts.

would this be accurate?

I tend to point potatoes once I have cooked them. Not sure if its right though as 300g of potatoes raw turns into 200g once cooked but I just point it as 2 points x

As far as i am aware you point it raw. You are still having the same amount of potato even when its cooked so i think it means raw

yeah that makes sense i think i'll stick to raw coz it only goes down in weight due to water so actualypotato and calorific matter is still there.

so the 1pt per 100g stands because its the same once cooked minus the water. well it seems this issue is sorted once and for all lol
