When you find a chip that sounds healthy, check the method with which it’s made because that’s where a lot of the calories and fat hide.
Terra Chips (50 g) and spinach dip (2 tbsp)
420 calories/ 34 g fat
Root vegetables made into chips sounds healthier than regular potato chips. But deep frying still multiplies calories and fat.
Fifty grams of Terra Chips with two tablespoons of spinach dip is equal in fat to an entire McCain’s thin crust whole-wheat pizza with marinated tomato and chicken.
Pop Chips (50 g) and salsa (2 tbsp)
218 calories/ 7 g fat
These chips are much lower in calories and fat. They are popped rather than fried or baked.
