Green Giant Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips

Green Giant is now in the snack aisle with their vegetable based chips. A few weeks ago, I tried the Green Giant Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips, but they also sent me a sample of Green Giant Roasted Veggie Zesty Cheddar Tortilla Chips, which I recently tried.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 10 chips (28 grams)
Calories: 140
Total Fat: 7 grams, 11%
Saturated Fat: 0.5 grams, 3%
Sodium: 190 mg, 8%
Carbohydrates: 18 grams, 6%
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugars: 2 grams
Protein: 2 grams

I must say I much prefer these tortilla chips to the sweet potato ones. They seem more flavorful, and had a healthy serving of "zesty cheddar." In fact they reminded me a lot of Doritos Nacho Cheese, but I actually prefer the Green Giant Roasted Veggie Zesty Cheddar Tortilla Chips.

Most people wouldn't consider Doritos healthy, but the nutrition facts for Green Giant Roasted Veggie Zesty Cheddar Tortilla Chips aren't much different. Each 28 gram serving (about 10 chips) provides 140 calories, 7 grams of total fat, 0.5 grams of which is saturated (11% and 3% of the daily value), 190 mg sodium (8% of the DV), 1 gram of fiber, 2 grams of proteins and sugars. Doritos has a little more saturated fat, but everything else is very similar.

The ingredients list is rather lengthy (way too much for me to try and type out), and it starts with whole grain corn, sunflower oil, dried red and green bell peppers. All the other components are present at less than 2%. With a brand like "Green Giant" I associate it with wholesome products, so even for chips - I don't expect to see artificial colors like Yellow 6 Lake and Yellow 5 Lake or partially hydrogenated soybean oil, which doesn't add enough trans fat to be shown on the label (i.e. less than 0.5 grams).

So, I doubt that I'll be on the lookout for these chips in my supermarket.
