So I’m about to sit and eat a snack that I normally wouldn’t eat but we had company over so I brought the bag out. Mmm crispy minis sweet chili rice chips. I take a look at the ingredients and wow so not healthy. Check these out… in order of appearance
~ corn ( with germ removed) which means the healthy fibrous part is gone.
~salt
~ sugar
~hydrolyzed soy protein–a binding agent for MSG
~monosodium glutamate~~ AKA MSG
~maltodextrin–starchy sugars AKA glucose
~ sodium acetate salt compound also used in temporary heating pads.
~fructose– AKA sugar
~Calcium Silicate- a derivative of limestone .
~Calcium stearate- provides glossiness used to gloss pencils, crayons,and waterproofing paving stones.
~ Disodium inosinate and Disodium guanylate – another form and binding agent for MSG
~ Silicone dioxide AKA component of sand, also found in glass, stoneware and porcelain.
~ sugar again………
Yummy!!! So my whole grain stamped Quaker crispy minis are now in the garbage….
