  • purple sweet potatoes and primal potato chips

    Where can one procure purple sweet potatoes? I am very anxious to try them.

    Also, is there a primal potato chip, or at least semi-primal. Something that is not boiled in rancid oil?

    You should be able to find purple yams at any Asian grocery store. They're tan and plain looking on the outside. I absolutely love them.

      I have only been able to find them in September where I live. I have never found those Asian ones, only a specific variety they grow in California. Only available in September and purple inside and out.

      I think I did read about some high oleic sunflower oil potato chips but I can't remember where.

        In the UK, chips were traditionally fried in lard or beef dripping. I know that US chips are a completely different thing (equivalent to crisps over here?) but I dont see why they shouldn't be fried in coconut oil or lard instead of seed oil.

          AFAIK, Lays potato chips are cooked in Sunflower oil.
          Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

            Most consumers don't check, so food processors are under intense pressure to use the cheapest possible ingredients.

            I think the Honest brand uses coconut oil though.
