Potato chips

Any fried snack food, such as potato chips, is a source of saturated fat. It is the shortening that gives the product its crispy texture. Chips contain high amounts of salt, which acts as a preservative as well as adding taste to the snack. Plus, chips are loaded with calories. An eight ounce bag of potato chips contains 1,217 calories, 12 grams of saturate fat and 18 mg of sodium.
