What chips have 0 salt and 0 potassium? Utz has salt and potassium so I don't know why they advertise it as no salt potato chips.

Potatoes have potassium. It's impossible to have potato chips with 0 potassium. And 5 mg of salt in a serving of the "no salt added" Utz chips? That's negligible. It's probably naturally occurring sodium.

Do you really eat no salt chips? Tasteless IMHO.

we need sodium in our diet, so you will probably have to settle for the low salt varieties & use that saltin the chips, as part of your daily allowance of salt.

Actually I find unsalted chips delicious. The natural flavor of the starch is enjoyable. There's too much salt in foods which causes your taste buds to get desensitized. Once you eat less salt and sugar, you'll realize your taste buds can expand on more flavor profile and taste the difference easier than being accustomed to highly salted and sugary foods.

Corn also has naturally occurring potassium and sodium.

Blue corn chips are blue because they use blue corn.

And make sure to read the packaging closely. They typically say "no salt added," not "no salt"

Some sodium, like potassium, is found naturally in potatoes. The chips you're looking at have no added salt during the processing phase.

Dreamer, have you been put on a very very low salt diet? I wonder if you need to ask your doctor for help with food choices. It's very hard to find things with little salt and little potassium.
