Traditional potato chips have been a popular snack for decades, but they do have some significant drawbacks in terms of healthiness. The potato slices are usually deep-fried in either plant or animal-based cooking oil and then showered with sodium-heavy seasonings. In 2007, a start-up company called Popchips introduced a new brand of potato-based snacks that avoid the deep fryer altogether. Popchips are first placed in pressurized chambers for cooking, then the pressure is suddenly released, creating a puffy and crispy chip. High oleic oils are then applied, followed by a shower of various seasoning blends. Popchips have the satisfying crunch and flavor profile of traditional potato chips, but use 50% less oil in the process. Popchips are also gluten-free, GMO-free and kosher. For those who seek a healthier alternative to fried potato chips as a stand-alone snack or side dish, we recommend the many flavors of Popchips.
