Most people may go to a Ruffles or Frito-Lay chip product to satisfy a craving, but alternative brands taste just as great and offer added health benefits.
The Department of Health and Human Services (HSS)Trusted Source defines healthy snacks as having no added sugar, low salt, low-fat content, whole grains, and potentially whole wheat. Products that meet these requirements add nutrients to the average diet and avoid adding empty calories with no nutritional benefits.
Healthy chips tend to have easily recognizable, real food ingredients rather than chemical ingredients that many consider unhealthy or harmful. Part of any CPG marketing strategy recognizes that healthy chip options are a convenient way to focus on nutrition when people are away from home and unable to eat fresh, whole foods.
Here are some examples of healthy chips consumers can consider:
Quest Nutrition Nacho Cheese Tortilla Style Protein Chips offer 18 grams of protein and only 5 grams of carbohydrates. They have moderate fat and sodium, making them ideal for low carb or keto eaters who enjoy chips.

Quevos Egg White Chips have all-natural ingredients like protein powder and boast lower carbs with more protein. Prebiotic fiber and flax seeds add to the nutritional value of the product.
