are baby red potatoes less inflammatory than russet potatoes?

They're also known as new potatoes in some parts of the country.

I've been poking around, but can't find the definitive word on this. Not that there is ever a definitive word anywhere about anything.

I think the question was about "baby" or "new" potatoes, and not just red v. russet. New potatoes are literally young potatoes.

The problem with toxicity in potatoes is their skin, not the flesh. So just eat whatever potato you like, their differences are small. As long as you always skin them.

I doubt this is the "definitive" word, but if you compare 100g of Russet potatoes to 100g of red potatoes over on NutritionData, the difference in ND's "inflammation factor" is minor (-59 to -53 respectively, aka "mildly" inflammatory).
