Good Fats + Oils
Healthier oils, such as sunflower, canola and corn oil are used in making all Frito-Lay snack chips. These oils are higher in polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats that have been proven to reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol and maintain HDL (good) cholesterol levels, contain less than 20% saturated fat, and 0 grams of tras fat, which have been associated with a reduction in the risk of heart disease.

Trans Fats
Since 2003, Frito-Lay discontinued the use of hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils in making our snack chips. All of our chips contain 0 grams of trans fat per serving. In some of our seasonings, there are trace amounts of partially hydrogenated oils, but in all cases, the amount of trans fat is so small that it is considered insignificant by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or equal to 0 grams of trans fat for FDA labeling regulations. We understand consumers would prefer products without these oils and we're working hard to remove them from these seasonings and hope to achieve this milestone soon.

Frito-Lay snacks have less sodium than you think. Despite their salty taste, chips are no higher in sodium than many foods such as some breads and cereals. Chips taste saltier because salt is on the chips’ surfaces. In other foods, salt is mixed and baked in which can hide the salty taste. Frito-Lay does not use iodized salt.
