Every now and then, I just have to try something new. I have no idea why, but I was drawn to the little bag of beet chips at an online store recently. I do love beets. I wondered if the chips would taste the same.
The chips are pictured below. The ingredients include corn masa flour, beets, sunflower, safflower, and/or canola oil, and sea salt.
The texture is just a little softer than potato chips. Maybe more like a tortilla chips.
The color is bright red just as you would expect from something made from beets. The smell is pleasant.
I’m still trying to figure out the flavor. I wouldn’t say that they taste like beets. They taste like a mild corn chip, if you want to know the truth. It make sense since corn masa flour is the main ingredient. It’s a nice flavor and lightly salted.
Overall, they aren’t bad. I like the taste and texture. But, I think it’s more corn than beet.
The are two servings per bag, 10 chips per serving. I think there were more than 20 chips in my bag.
Per serving there are 70 mg of sodium, 2 g of fiber, and 2 grams of protein. The rest of nutrients are minimal. They are gluten free and vegan friendly (that’s what the packaging says!)
