Blue Corn Bonanza

What’s the biggest nutrition bone to pick with tortilla chips?

They’re fried in fat, loaded with salt and have no fiber.

So what then, is the RW Garcia brand doing to turn this chip frown upside down?

Well, one taste of their 3 Seed Blue Corn Dipping Chips Dippers and you’ll know…

If you’ve gotta eat chips – then you’ve gotta try these. A 1 oz serving (10 chip strips) has 140 calories, 8 grams of mostly good fat, only 50 mg sodium, 3 g dietary fiber and 3 g protein.

Sure, they’re chips – which means they’re a sometimes food – but there’s nothing sneaky about the ingredient list:

  • Corn
  • Oil
  • Flaxseed
  • Sesame seeds
  • Chia seeds
  • Sea salt
  • Water
  • Lime

If you know a thing or two about snack foods, you might do a double-take when you see only 50 mg sodium per serving. That’s impressive, considering that in the US, a food with 140 mg sodium or less per serving can call itself “low-sodium”. This too, in a country where – according to the CDC – the average American eats 3,500 mg sodium per day.

On top of that, the product is proudly GMO-free. Another win, especially when 85% or more of the corn in the US is genetically modified.

I admire a company that puts out a wholesome, quality, GMO-free product with an impressive ingredient list, friendly fiber profile and just a hint of salt. Well done RW Garcia – keep up the good work!
