Eight cultivars of potato, adapted to the mountainous conditions of Minas Gerais state, harvest of 2011, were evaluated for their centesimal composition, color and amylose content.The results demonstrated that ‘Marcy’ and ‘Colorado’ cultivars showed important characteristic for cooking. The ‘Marlen’ and ‘Pirassu’ cultivars showed required attributes for processing in the form of chips or straw and the cultivar ‘BRS Ana’ for pre-fried sticks.
