Are most of a potato's vitamins in the skin?

Vitamins in potatoes and most other vegetables are not concentrated in the skin (as some health food faddist believe), but in the pulp just under the skin. However, since it is impossible to peel a potato without scraping away some of the vitamin-rich pulp, it makes sense to cook and serve it with its skin. Besides, the skin does have some nutrients and adds flavor, texture and color contrast.
