Salba Smart Potato Chip Crisps

One of the downfalls of any well-intentioned diet plan is a love of snacking.  I tend to go through times when I crave a sweet snack, and then other times when I want something crunchy, crispy, and salty.  I simply adore crispy foods for snacking, don’t you?  I think everyone has a passion of some sort for chips, and I certainly do.  I have reviewed many of my favorites in the past, such as Kettle brand unsalted chips and Kay’s Natural protein chips

I have found a new “love”, however, in Salba Smart Baked Potato Crisps.  These are so delicious – and I love the fact that they are baked, not fried.  I found these at my local Whole Foods, and I just had to try the Baked Bar-B-Que flavor, which weighs in at just 120 little calories (3 weight watchers point plus points). There’s also an original flavor and a cheddar and sour cream flavor, as well as three types of organic tortilla chips in white, blue, and yellow corn varieties. I hadn’t heard much about salba before, but I did a bit of investigating after tasting these top notch yummy chips. 

Salba Smart products are made with salba, which is a nutrient and mineral rich whole grain.  The salba in these chips is, according to the Salba website, grown under strict growing conditions by a family of growers in Peru.  Salba has been shown in a clinical study to aid in the management of type II diabetes.

Per the Salba website, a serving of salba has a third more antioxidants than blueberries, twice the potassium of bananas, six times the calcium of milk, a fourth more fiber than flax seed, six times the iron of kidney beans and five times the folate of spinach.   All I can say to all that is WOW!  These chips are definitely not lacking nutritionally!

These chips are available at natural food stores as well as online at Amazon.
