    Costco Sweet Potato Chips

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    OK, so I know they are not an un-processed food, but does anyone else consume these instead of making them? They seem reasonable for being about as natural as possible. Just wanted to see what others thought.

    I'm trying to remember why I passed them up; weren't they coated with canola oil or something like that?

    They remind me of this woman in Costco that was buying boxes of their seaweed talking about how healthy it is. The stuff is covered in vegetable oil. <Facepalm>

    If you're talking about the Terra brand, the ingredients are: Sweet Potato, Canola Oil and/or Safflower Oil and/or Sunflower Oil, Salt, Spices, Cane Sugar, Garlic Powder.

    Total fail, sadly.

    No not the Terra brand. Its the Food Should Taste Good brand. Ingredients are Sweet potatoes, Sunflower Oil and Sea Salt. They are kettle cooked, but even still if they are in sunflower oil, it should still be OK right?

    Sunflower oil has so many n-6 pufas. Same thing as the vegetable oil when you heat it up, imo.

    Unless you're just uber-hardcore, (congrats!) just eat them. There are worse things in the world.

    Actually some of us think consuming PUFA is worse then consuming grains.. especially if its something you are eating OFTEN. If its an occasional treat, then go for it! But remember to think of it as such.
