What Are Coconut Chips And Are They Better Than Potato Chips?
Coconut chips are an excellent combination of salty and sweet taste. They are made from creamy coconut flesh with removed moisture, baked with coconut blossom nectar until they transform into crunchy heaven. So, how do they differ from the favourite potato chips and are they better for your health?
Potato chips are a giant in the snacking department. They are a tasty and familiar option to satisfy the tongue. Despite their popularity, chips are an energy-dense food with little nutritional value. Too much salt be the culprit for various health issues, like increased blood pressure and heart disease. Of course, there is nothing wrong with indulging in a bag of potato chips once in a while, however, there are healthier alternatives to consider.
Coconut chips, for example, are the ultimate guilt-free snack to satisfy the salty, sweet, crunchy craving of potato chips without the starchy carb overload.

Health Benefits Of Coconut Chips
They are rich in fat, vitamin B, minerals and other nutrients. A few key nutrients in coconut chips include lauric acid, chloride and iron, as well as important electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium. A healthy balance of electrolytes is important as they improve general well-being.
Many studies show that the antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity of coconut may ward off several health conditions. Apart from being insanely delicious, coconut chips are perfect for blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels regulation. This addictive snack helps boost energy levels and increase metabolism in the body.
Keep in mind, because they are so high in fat (be it the good kind), they are also high in calories. Depending on your calorie needs and intake, their overuse may lead to weight gain. Once more, we’ve got to say – moderation is key!
Additionally, some people may be allergic to coconuts, though rare. If you see signs of an allergy (skin irritation, tight throat, sneezing, wheezing, stomach problems, etc.), you must eliminate all coconut-derived from your regimen!
