    Sweet Potato Chips


    I tried a bag of these the other day, UTZ brand. They were amazing. There a kettle style and the ingredients are Whole fresh potatoes, sliced and cooked in 100% pure Peanut Oil, with salt added. No oil preservatives added. Entire line free of MSG. Contains no hydrogenated fats. My question is can i substitute this instead of cooking and eating a reg. sweet potato. They appear relatively healhty and they taste great.

    yep, im sure they are very calorie dense. 1 serving has still gotta include a good portion of cals coming from fats. cooking a regular sweet potato wont contribute additional fats, but since these are cooked in peanut oil... enough said. yes, its healthier fat but still, i doubt a serving of these chips with a lean protein source will leave you satiated.

    yes you are right. Im having trouble finding the info on the net but im still trying. Just to give you an idea a small 99 cent bag has 300 calories and about 15 grams of fat but only .5 of them are sat so its healthy fat depending on your diet.
