While at the hospital yesterday for my dietetic internship, I came across a brand of chips I had never seen before. While I can’t say I have been overly impressed with the food choices in the cafeteria, I do have to admit that these surprised me.
They were by a company called Food Should Taste Good, which is a pretty sweet name. Surprisingly, their chips were made from real ingredients, from a quality oil and contained plenty of fiber.
They have many different products, ranging from blue corn, to sweet potato, to the works. Rather than the usual soybean or safflower oil, which are loaded with omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, they instead use a high-oleic sunflower or safflower oil. What this means is chose sunflower or safflower oil from plants that have been bred the old-fashioned to way to have a very high oleic acid content, the healthy monounsaturated fatty acid in olive oil, and a low polyunsaturated fatty acid content. This is a great thing.
The simplicity and quality of the ingredients definitely impressed me, especially for a chip. They were quite tasty too!
While I would not recommend eating chips every day, here and there, especially in the summer, they are nice to throw in with a grass-fed burger. They are a perfect summer food, so check them out!
