Production production[edit]

  • Potato chips
    The washed potatoes are transferred to a steam peeler or a mechanical peeler for peeling. Then enter the second washing machine and wash the potato skin remaining on the surface of the potato. The washed potatoes are transported to a test bench for manual sorting and finishing of the peeled potatoes.
  • The belt conveyor feeds the peeled potatoes into the slicer. The potatoes are cut into the desired slices. The free starch is washed with water.
  • The washed potato chips are sent to a blanching machine for blanching, and the potato chips from the washing and blanching carry a large amount of attached water. Using a vibrating screen with a strong wind, the individual chips are separated and the attached water is blown dry. It is then transferred to a fryer to reduce the moisture content of the chips from 80% to 2% to give a crispy product. The oil content of the fried chips is between 30% and 40%. After frying, the chips are transferred to a drain conveyor to drain the oil remaining on the surface of the product. The fried potato chips are conveyed to a drum seasoning machine to season the potato chips, and different seasonings are added according to different products. The seasoned chips are then transferred to the packaging shop to package the product in the desired size and shape.

  • The health effects of potato chips
  • The oil content of potato chips is usually around 30%, which is a high oil and high salt food. Like other fried foods, long-term consumption is not good for health. At the same time, starch-rich foods may produce acrylamides of varying contents after high-temperature processing. Some people worry that this substance is carcinogenic. Fan Zhihong, a nutrition expert at the Agricultural University, believes that because the metabolism of the elderly is relatively slow, the body of the child is still developing and the detoxification ability is poor. These two people eat fried foods containing acrylamide for a long time, and the toxins are not easily discharged, which is the biggest health hazard. People with high blood lipids, high blood pressure, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, and chronic diseases such as diabetes must reject crispy food such as potato chips.
  • Controversy over the oil content of potato chips

  • In 2012, a set of experimental pictures was distributed online, and 10 ml of oil could be extracted from 5 pieces of potato chips. The experimenter and other nutrition experts later clarified that the data was false. According to the experimenter's description, the experiment used 7 grams of potato chips (about 5 pieces of potato chips based on the mass of the single piece), the theoretical extraction amount of oil was about 2.5 grams, and the actual extraction amount was close to the theoretical value, but there was no net transmission. 10 ml" as much. Later, some people also used different types of potato chips and French fries (sliced potato chips, potato flour shaped fried potato chips, non-fried potato chips, fried puffed hollow French fries and chain fast food restaurant fries) Repeat the experiment and found that the oil content of the two fried potato chips is about 30%, and the non-fried potato chips are about 25%. This is close to the theoretical value. [1]
  • Controversy about acrylamide
  • Starch foods are prone to acrylamide when cooked at high temperatures (>120 ° C), which is a possible carcinogen. However, the mechanism of carcinogenicity in human body is still unclear and needs further study. Moreover, no research has been found to prove that acrylamide can cause cancer when people eat food normally. At present, the World Health Organization has not yet established a limited standard for acrylamide. [2]
  • The Ministry of Health's 2005 announcement recommended: 1. Avoid cooking starchy foods for a long time or at high temperatures. 2. Promote reasonable nutrition, balance diet, change the eating habits of fried and high-fat foods, and reduce the health hazards caused by acrylamide. [3]

Lexi Potato Chips is the first American brand to be successfully marketed. Since the 1960s, potato chips have begun to spread around the world.
  • Prior to the invention of the sealed package, the potato chips were kept in large buckets or cans, and the potato chips at the bottom were often not fresh or wet. Later, Laura Scudder invented the bag that burned the two wax papers together, creating a sealed package and preserving the freshness of the potato chips until opening. Today, potato chips are sealed in dry air and sealed in a plastic bag to prevent crushing.

In contrast, the potato chips in Europe are called “potato chips” to distinguish them from the traditional “crisps”.
  • Some companies also sell potato chips for alternative low-fat foods. In addition, some non-fat potato chips contain artificial, indigestible oil substitutes. These substances have been exposed by the media to a large amount of absorption of Olestra, which can cause stomach upset and more embarrassing incontinence.
