« Better Eating Through Science »

My bag of Poore Brothers® brand Salt & Vinegar potato chips has the following ingredients:

  • Potatoes
  • Vegetable oil (may contain one or more of the following: sunflower and/or cottonseed)
  • Maltodextrin
  • Sodium diacetate
  • Dextrose
  • Salt
  • Malic acid
  • Sodium citrate

Looks like they forgot the vinegar. Well, they had me fooled. Ah, the wonders of modern chemical based food production!

I wonder how they arrived at deciding to leave out vinegar from a recipe that really sounds to me like its no more complex than taters, salt, and vinegar. Ah, the R&D department must have a great time figuring this one out!
