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.
This is how they stack up nutrition wise…
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!)

I have tried so many different vegetable chips and it seems they rarely taste like the veggie they call themselves. Yes, like you say here about the beet chips, flavor is generally a strange-tasting tortilla type.
Ruth, I know what you mean! Maybe some produce shouldn’t be into chips. I usually find the flavors aren’t distinct enough or resembling what the original fruit or vegetable tastes like.
