Chips that are paleo are hard to come by. Either they use junky oils that are high in Omega-6 fatty acids like canola, safflower, sunflower, or something similar, or they have a ridiculous amount of ingredients that were probably never meant to be consumed.
But, I found these Boulder Canyon Sea Salt chips at the grocery store a few weeks ago, and they are awesome! I know that white potatoes are a gray area food because of the insulin response that they create when compared to sweet potatoes, but I am healthy enough now where I don’t have as many blood sugar issues and can eat white potatoes without issue.
So, what are the ingredients in these?
That’s it. That’s all that is in each and every wonderful chip. And the avocado oil gives a smoothness that is hard to describe when compared to regular chips. I wouldn’t say eat a bag a week or anything like that, but for those times when you need some crunch or want to eat just a few as you walk by the pantry, I think they would be just fine. And they obviously would be so much better for you than anything from Frito-Lays. They do have a couple of other flavors like Sea Salt and Black Pepper, and Sea Salt and Malt Vinegar, but the ingredient list is substantially bigger, and Malt Vinegar is derived from Barley Malt, so it makes me a little bit nervous about the amount of gluten that could be in that, and apparently I’m not the only one.
But I would wholeheartedly give a thumbs up to the basic Sea Salt wavy and kettle cooked chips as they are basic and use solid ingredients as the labeling says Non-GMO ingredients are used as well. Very solid line in the sand Boulder Canyon. I approve.
