We don't normally eat Lay's chips; I always found them too thin, salty and greasy.
But a friend bought some over, and I checked the ingredient list because I was curious about a recent discussion of glutamates in snack foods and how they increase cravings -- you know, "You can't have just one!" and all that. So I figured with that slogan, Lay's would be full of them.
The bag read:
"Ingredients: Potatoes, Sunflower Oil, Salt."
Somehow, I find that extremely hard to believe -- especially since my son left the bag open for a day or two unbeknownst to me and they still tasted good, better than I remembered.
NO preservatives of any kind? No flavorings, or anything else? Seriously?
Am I just overly suspicious, or is Lay's Potato Chips really one of the most unprocessed foodstuffs in my kitchen?
