Numerous people fell in love with the Baked Lays as they were advertised as a healthy variant if the Fried chips.
Yet, apparently, these snacks were not that healthy, as even though they were lower in calories, fat, and sodium, they mostly include salt and chemicals.
These are the ingredients of the Fried chips: Potatoes, Sunflower and/or Canola oil and salt. The used oils are extremely toxic if used at a high temperature, such as the one used when frying the potatoes.
Namely, the starch in potatoes is exposed to the high heat and creates acrylamide, which is a known carcinogen.
Moreover, the potatoes used are not fresh but dried, and then baked at a lower temperature. There is no explanation of the process of drying them, as it probably includes exposure to high temperature and acrylamide.
According to the findings by the FDA, these chips have three times more acrylamide than the fried version.
Additionally, as the Baked Lays are not organic, their ingredients, including potatoes, sugar (High Fructose Corn Syrup), corn starch, corn oil, and soy lecithin are probably from a GMO source.
