The composition and harm of potato chips
The potato itself belongs to useful and necessary products, and after turning into chips, it acquires the ability to harm the body.

By consuming such a product in large quantities, you can get cancer.
If you look for benefits in chips, then you can only note one thing - they have an excellent taste, which attracts amateurs, especially in combination with beer (calorizer). This applies to chips made from natural potatoes, which have many necessary and useful elements, for example, vitamins C, PP, B1, B6, B2, B9, are found in large quantities, and the benefits of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and sodium, in general, it is impossible to overestimate. Unfortunately, natural chips are hard to find on store shelves.

Soak in the oven for the prescribed time until tender, then sprinkle with salt and special seasonings with different tastes.
