Does "Baked" Mean Better?

Does "Baked" Mean Better?

You've seen this before on a chip bag. "Baked not Fried." But does baked actually mean "healthier?"

The original Lays are made with good old potatoes, sunflower oil and salt.

The Baked Version contains a whole lot more non-food ingredients, which is kind of creepy if you ask me. They had to add leavening to make them look like chips. They took out the fat but to make them taste good, they had to add sugar. Who needs more of that in their diet?

Fit's Tip: Either way you slice it, (or name it in this case) chips just aren't healthy. If salty crunchy snacks are what you crave, why not try a handful of dry roasted nuts or edamame.
