Heart-Healthy Frying:

When prepared using high-quality oil and proper frying techniques, these chips can be a source of heart-healthy fats. Opting for oils high in monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats, such as olive oil or avocado oil, can promote heart health and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
