Our expert says:
I must admit that I too have never heard that starch, esp in the form of potato can cause leg cramps. Generally cramps in the legs are caused by stiff muscles that can be counteracted by doing stretching exercises, or in some cases deficiencies in minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium and/or sodium. Finally severe spasms in the extremities could be indicative of poor blood circulation and require medical treatment.
I do hope your hubby stops having these cramps.
