One option that is out there, fortunately, is Kettle Brand Fully Unsalted Potato Chips. I like Kettle products to begin with because they use all organic potatoes and even the salted varieties of Kettle chips are salted with sea salt, which is a better alternative. And Kettle chips are never made with icky trans-fats, GMOs, or in their own words “artificial whatchamacallits”. Yep, they’re all natural, cooked in safflower or sunflower oil. The folks at Kettle put it best when they state, “we searched the world over for the ideal potato, gently cooked it to perfection, and let it run around in the buff, just as nature intended”. Those guys over at Kettle have definitely got a way with words!
Their unsalted chips are premium chips that are so delicious and potatoe-y (is that a word?) that you won’t miss the salt a bit. Each one ounce serving of Kettle Brand Unsalted Potato Chips have just 150 calories, no cholesterol, two grams of dietary fiber and two grams of protein (so 3 weight watchers points for one serving). They are also loaded with potassium and a significant amount of vitamin C. Yum! I like these chips with salsa that I make at home using my own recipe and they are a great take-along snack with a nutritious low-cal sandwich.
If you’re looking to cut your sodium intake while still enjoying a delicious potato chip, then these chips are for you. Current guidelines suggest that a healthy diet should have no more than 2,400 mg of sodium per day, and most doctors suggest consuming less than 1,500 mg of sodium for those people who have high blood pressure or at risk of developing high blood pressure.
You can buy Kettle chips at tons of grocery stores (including Whole Foods), or online at Amazon
