What’s causing dips in your health? It’s the chips!

American-style cream and onion chips are processed foods made from potatoes. Chips in general, hurt glucose levels. They are high in carbohydrates in the form of starch, which increases the glucose level in your blood. Not to mention the added sugar from the maida or wheat flour.

Keep your glucose levels steady
• Consider having chips made out of flour that is not wheat or maida. Low or no-carbohydrate flour would help, like almond flour or coconut flour.
• Try snacks with the same feel as chips to avoid the craving. Seed crackers make good snack alternatives as they are rich in healthy fats.
• Consider limiting the size of the packet of chips you consume. Go for the smallest size, which has the most negligible negative impact.
• Limiting the frequency of your chips consumption should also help keep your glucose levels in check.

Not only do potato chips contain high amounts of carbohydrates, but they also contain meager amounts of fibre. Chips are not beneficial for anyone who is monitoring their glucose. Moreover, the fats in these chips are unhealthy, unlike healthy fats found in coconut, avocado and the like. Hence, when the craving hits, you must consider your options carefully and consume the appropriate chips.
