    It's probably best to ignore me as I don't actually know the answer for sure, but at a guess could it be that one is baked and the other boiled in water (and will therefore be heavier?)

    Think it's to do with fact that new potatoes have a lower glycaemic index than older/baked spuds. I stand corrected if I'm wrong :)

    Now you mention it JaxieD I believe WW pro points system has the two types of potatoes at different points for that very reason too. Something about the way in which the potato is cooked altering it's effect on blood sugar. (Again, I could be wrong, it seems to be a habit of mine lol)

    JaxieD you're absolutely right, new potatoes have a lower Glycaemic index and Glycaemic load than normal potatoes.
