Is eating lay’s harmful?

As always before going to the lay’s chips recipes, let’s look at the reasons why one should always go for the homemade lay’s chips.

Even though they’ve removed the trans fats from the lay’s in 2003, they are processed food hence definitely they are bad for you.

 

Although Lay’s has a “low sodium” version of their chips, most contain an overabundance of salt.  A diet consisting of too much salt can lead to high blood pressure and kidney disease. Even just one serving of Lay’s chips is recognized as high in calories and high in fat by the FDA. Loading ourselves with calories and fat causes weight gain and puts us at risk for other diseases. Unhealthy deep-fried chips cause digestive problems and stress on the body’s metabolism making it harder to produce insulin, which in turn leads to (or significantly increases the risk of) type 2 diabetes.

When we examine the label we read that the baked version contains additional ingredients such as corn starch, corn oil, and soy lecithin. Since it is not specified that they are organic, there is a high chance that they are genetically modified (GMO) ingredients.  Also added is sugar and corn sugar (high fructose corn syrup) which have been shown in studies to increase the risk of obesity, liver damage, and metabolic syndrome. Scientists also discovered that about half of commercial high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) was contaminated with mercury. (source)

Package of the Lay’s chips:

Also, we are not sure about the packaging. So why take the risk to our health and the environment? Let’s switch to homemade lay’s chips. One more interesting thing is that when we are buying them, we only get a minimum quantity but while doing at home we have enough amount of healthy lay’s chips for all in our home!
