We consume, in Britain, around 6 billion packets of crisps annually – that’s more than everyone else in Europe put together. Crisps are just part of our diet. There is nothing wrong with eating crisps but you must read the back of the pack to know what they put in your favourite crisps. Most of the well-known crisps include a huge percentage of oil and salt.
Eating one pack of potato crisps every day for a year, is like drinking 5L of cooking oil a year, scary,no? Don’t worry Giving Tree snacks are the best combination of crisps and fruit & veggies without nasties.
Our veggie crisps are not fried as the other crips in a market with a lot of oil. We use a new technology to fry them to allow the vegetables to absorb less oil. Vacuum-frying techniques retained more nutrients than their conventionally fried counterparts. The vacuum-fried food keeps 95 % of their vitamins; fried potato crisps typically only retain about 50 % of their vitamins.
‘Most of the benefits of vacuum frying from the low temperatures used and the minimal exposure to oxygen, which reduces the adverse effects on the oil quality, preserves the natural colour and flavour , decreases the acrylamide content and preserves nutritional compounds, such as vitamins and minerals. Vacuum frying is a good option to achieve high quality dried products with better colours and flavours due to the reduced oxidation, lower frying temperatures and much shorter processing times compared with other techniques’ Source : International Food Research Journal (2015)
