SNACK ATTACK! From a tortilla chip with a tropical twist to a chickpea “cheezy-poof” this week’s well-ranked crunches on a few plant-based and gluten-free chips.
The market for gluten-free chips is growing with new textures and flavors from foods like beans, rice and coconut. Although most brands (healthy or not) still can’t shake sketchy ingredients like canola oil and malodextrin, the big problems like trans fat and artificial colors and flavors are eliminated.
As always, check your labels and choose your battles. Or stick to trail mix 😉
