      My daughter loves them. Are they the ones from Trader Joe's?

      Grokka has a point. Heating sunflower oil to cook them isn't wise. Although, it may be the high oleic sunflower oil (low polyunsaturates), so it might be safer.

      Because my daughter already is gluten-free and doesn't eat a lot of other things, I just let her have them...maybe 2 or 3 times a week.

        I am in the same boat. Both kids are GFCFSFEGNF (gluten, casein, soy, egg, nut FREE) so when it comes to them having a snack at school they sometimes want lays potato chips. I was just wondering if plantain would be any healthier .. both are cooked in sunflower oil ... neither is organic.

        Thanks!

          I personally would do the plantain chips. I find them more satisfying. They seem to be thicker and "heartier." Again, we don't eat a ton of them, but keep them around. Like you said, they're both sunflower oil. I am not convinced that potatoes are a great food for everyone -- especially for kids with food allergies. They can damage the gut. I'm not saying they can't be eaten in moderation; I just think plantains are safer? Maybe?

          Trader Joe's has yummy vacuum fried banana chips fried in coconut or palm oil i think. No sugar. But they're sweet, so they don't really satisfy the salty side. They're labeled 50% less fat, but they're still good. I don't like the full-fat ones...I don't think they have any flavor and they have sugar added.

          I found these on amazon: they're in palm oil -- http://www.amazon.com/Inka-Crops-Roa...f=pd_sbs_gro_2

            you could always make them yourself using coconut oil...
