We all have been there. Mindlessly munching on those potato chip and suddenly, wait who finished all my chips?! It was you. How did you finish that whole bag of chips all by yourself? At the back of your head you hear yourself say "FAAAAATTTT". Well, there is a science on why potato chips are so addictive.
Potato chips are best known for two things: salt and fat. Time Magazine writes about how the fats alone isn’t actually very appetizing. The taste you can’t resist is due to the sugar or salt that’s often present in fatty foods. Lately, researchers have taken a closer look at salt. Eating lots of it has been linked to obesity, even independent of calorie consumption. Some research even shows that liking salty, fatty foods is linked to overeating and overweight even more than having a taste for sweet fatty foods. Now, a new study published in the Journal of Nutrition suggests that salt is playing an even more powerful role than we thought in making us eat more.
Science aside, we also know it this subconscious habit we have when any snacks are around. If we are going to be munching away, anyway, how about we suggest some healthier alternatives?
