Are potatoes sprouts poisonous?
Solanine and other glycoalkaloids are present in potato plants and in the eyes and the sprout growth of a potato tuber. Both are toxic to humans and can lead to a headache, vomiting, and other digestive symptoms. It is why you want to remove the sprouts and eyes before you eat the potato.
Yes. Potato plant poisoning occurs when someone eats the green tubers or new sprouts of the potato plant.
