Frito-Lay Introduces Two More Snacks With Less Salt

June 28, 2010: 10:51 PM EST
In an effort to balance consumer demands for less sodium with their craving for traditional salty flavor, Frito-Lay North America has unveiled Lightly Salted corn chips and Ruffles Lightly Salted potato chips. The Lay’s Lightly Salted line, launched in 2000, contains only half the sodium per one-ounce serving of the original products. Interestingly, Frito-Lay says even its traditional snack chips are moderate in sodium. Lay's Classic potato chips contain 180 mg per one ounce serving (15 chips), compared to a slice of bread, the company says. A one-ounce serving of Classic Potato Chips compares well with ready-to-eat corn flakes cereal, which contains 202 mg per one-cup serving. Note, however, that a one-cup serving of potato chips would contain 1,616 mg of sodium.
