How to Choose Healthy Chips – Buying Guide

Figuring out what makes chips healthy is all about reading the label, so don’t skimp on the research.

For Nutrients, Look Beyond the White Potato

For Nutrients, Look Beyond the White Potato
As tasty as potatoes are, they don’t offer much in terms of vitamins and minerals. So, for chips that offer a bit more, look for chips made from different base veggies—or even fruits!
Some popular bases include chickpeas, carrots, sweet potatoes, and bananas or plantains. If you’re hesitant about branching out because of the flavor, don’t worry—especially if you like flavored chips, the different base often doesn’t make too much of a difference in taste or texture.

Avoid Artificial Ingredients and Preservatives

Avoid Artificial Ingredients and Preservatives
For the most healthful chips, do your best to read the ingredients label and steer clear of those that have artificial flavors, dyes, or preservatives.
Chips are a fairly simple food, and the ingredient list should reflect that. As a good measure, try to look for ingredient lists that contain only things you could find in your own pantry or local grocery store.

For Satiety and Weight Management, Pay Attention to Macronutrients

For Satiety and Weight Management, Pay Attention to Macronutrients
Most conventional chips are high in calories and fat, which can lead to overeating as they don’t make you feel very full. For chips that fill you up and are less likely to pack on the pounds, look for a good balance of carbs, protein, and fats.
One way to quickly guess how much fat will be in a chip is by seeing whether it’s fried, baked, or dried. Fried chips will almost certainly have much more fat than baked or dried chips.
As a benchmark, look for chips with less than 150 calories and 9 grams of fat per serving. And more protein is usually better.
Sodium, too, can make you look and feel bloated. The FDA recommends choosing food that will result in you getting less than 100% DV a day. Generally, 5% in a serving is light; anything over 20% is considered high.

If You Have Allergies or Dietary Restrictions, Look for Official Certifications

If You Have Allergies or Dietary Restrictions, Look for Official Certifications
If you follow a strict diet or have allergies, an easy way to figure out whether a chip is suitable for you is by looking for official certifications. You can normally find any seals on the back of the package, and some of the most common ones are organic, non-GMO, kosher, vegan, and gluten-free certifications.

Life is all about trade-offs–between time and money, work and pleasure, convenience and the environment. But when it comes to your health and good food, who says you can’t have it all? Below are some other snacks that are both nutritious and delicious.

Summary

There’s something uniquely satisfying about a good crunchy chip. And just because you’re looking out for your health doesn’t mean that you have to give it up.
