The Superior Chip

Those made from
blue corn have 20 percent
more protein than their
white corn counterparts,
finds a study in the
Journal of the Science of
Food and Agriculture. The
tinted snack gets its blue
hue from anthocyanins,
disease-fighting
compounds also found
in blueberries and red
wine. Still, they have
140 calories and 7 grams
of fat per 15-chip serving,
so stop at a handful
and scoop up salsa rather
than creamy dips.
