You Ask, I Answer: Pringles

Are Pringles better for you than regular potato chips? They feel a lot less greasier.

– Brandon Freimner

When it comes to items like potato chips, it’s rather misleading to think of one particular type of brand as “better for you”. “A slightly healthier alternative” is a more accurate way of thinking.

Some foods don’t offer much in terms of nutrition, and should be accepted as such.  That is why they are occasional treats.

When I enjoy a bowl of ice cream, I choose the brand that provides the best flavor and truly satisfies me. I prefer to have one scoop of decadent ice cream once in a while than half a box of fat-free, sugar-free, Splenda-laden fudge pops every week.

If you ever find yourself in the supermarket aisles looking for the “healthiest potato chip,” you are doing yourself a disservice.

Onto your question (which I really like, since Pringles are usually considered “less fattening” because, as the commercials used to proudly point out, they leave less greasy residue on your hands than a bunch of Ruffles or Lay’s).

I will let the facts speak for themselves.

Here is how one serving of Pringles (14 crisps) compares to a serving of Ruffle’s (12 chips):

  • Calories: Both offer 160 calories
  • Fat: 10 grams (Ruffles) vs. 11 grams (Pringles)
  • Saturated Fat: 1 gram (Ruffles) vs. 3 grams (Pringles)
  • Sodium: 160 milligrams (Ruffles) vs. 170 milligrams (Pringles)
  • Potassium: 340 milligrams (Ruffles) vs. 0 milligrams (Pringles)

In essence, Pringles are potato chips in a tube, by no means a “healthy alternative”.

And, at least with conventional potato chips (Pringles are dehydrated potato flakes), you get a decent amount of potassium.

    I would like to know if there is any significant difference between hard and soft tofu?
