  • Cons: on the pricey side

Jackson’s Honest sweet potato chips are a great choice when cravings for crunchy, salty snacks hit.

These chips are made with just three ingredients: sweet potatoes, coconut oil, and sea salt. Coconut oil is an excellent choice for frying chips because of its stability at high temperatures (3Trusted Source).

Many popular chips are fried in canola oil. Although it’s stable at high temperatures, canola oil is high in omega-6 fats, which can increase inflammation in your body when consumed in excess (4Trusted Source, 5Trusted Source).

Because modern diets tend to be high in omega-6 fats and low in anti-inflammatory omega-3s, it’s best to reduce your intake of refined omega-6-rich oils such as canola oil.

These chips are also slightly higher in fiber and lower in sodium than traditional potato chips (6, 7).
