    What's Really In Potato Chips?

    What's Really In Potato Chips?

    • Dr. Mercola







    To understand the nature of Pringles and
    other stackable chips, forget the notion that they come from actual
    potatoes in any recognizable way.

    The Pringles Company (in an effort to avoid taxes levied against
    luxury foods like chips in the UK) once even argued that the
    potato content of their chips was so low that they are technically
    not even potato chips.

    So if they're not made of potatoes, what are they exactly?

    The process begins with a slurry of rice, wheat, corn, and potato
    flakes that are pressed into shape.

    This dough-like substance is then rolled out into an ultra-thin sheet
    cut into chip-cookies by a machine.

    According to io9:
    The chips move forward on a conveyor belt until they're pressed
    onto molds, which give them the curve that makes them fit into one another.
    Those molds move through boiling oil Then they're blown dry,
    sprayed with powdered flavors, and at last, flipped onto a slower-moving
    conveyor belt in a way that allows them to stack.
    From then on, it's into the cans and off towards the innocent
    mouths of the consumers.

    I suspect nearly everyone reading this likely enjoys the taste of
    potato chips. However, they are clearly one of the most toxic
    processed foods you can eat whether they're made from actual potato shavings or not.

    Potato Chips are Loaded with Cancer-Causing Chemical

    One of the most hazardous ingredients in potato chips is not
    intentionally added, but rather is a byproduct of the processing.
    Acrylamide, a cancer-causing and potentially neurotoxic chemical,
    is created when carbohydrate-rich foods are cooked at high
    temperatures, whether baked, fried, roasted or toasted.
    Some of the worst offenders include potato chips and
    French fries, but many foods cooked or processed at
    temperatures above 212F (100C) may contain acrylamide
