Potato chips/crisps are made from fresh potatoes, vegetable oil and flavourings. It takes about 4 tonnes of potatoes to make 1 tonne of chips/crisps. The potatoes must have a high dry matter content and must have a low level of reducing glucose in order to ensure the chips have a light golden yellow colour. Different vegetable oils are used for frying. Nowadays sunflower oil is the preferred oil type used.
Over the last ten years the industry has changed towards high oleic varieties of sunflower oil in order to reduce the level of saturated fat in its products by up to 80%.
