Looks like it in the description. If it is the solanine that is the problem, make sure to not feed sprouting or potatoes with green under the skin. Although apparently some potatoes can contain toxic levels even if they don't have green under the skin, so probably best to stay away from them entirely just in case. Cooking the potato does destroy some of the solanine. Always store potatoes in the dark. Incidentally, the solanine is also toxic to humans.
