Chips, if them correctly to use, carry no more harm than some fruits. About safe way told in an interview to radio Sputnik specialist in nutrition and weight loss, nutritionist Ivan Alimenko.

Chips, along with soda and candy, are considered to be one of the most harmful products for the human body. Problem of salt and high calorie content. But fruits are not always useful, if you do not know the measures, said the nutritionist Ivan Alimenko.

"Who is harmful chips? They are harmful for people with hypertension because they are salt. They are harmful to people with atherosclerosis because they contain cholesterol. They are harmful to people with obesity, because they contain a lot of calories. But you need to understand that many of the products of conditionally useful harmful to people with these diseases. Here’s a fine line that it never expose. People will not buy a small bag of chips, and to go out and pick fruits and even more fat, because the fructose is all in the stomach and forms the visceral fat", — told radio Sputnik nutritionist.

The main problem of chips not in the composition, and the amount of use. If people learn to eat in small portions, so the talk about the dangers of chips can disappear.

"I think we need to promote small packages "harmful" products. It would be an interesting story. If a small package would be worth less large, then small great packaging would remove these risks and threats. People buy large packages, because per kilogram it turns profitable price, and then it all eat. I am for the promotion of small packages of conditionally harmful products", — said the nutritionist Ivan Alimenko in an interview with radio Sputnik.
