They are multi-grain chips with no trans fat and no sat fat. Are they complex or simple carbs?

Complex, with a boat-load of fat as I recall.

remember anything less than .5g trans fat perserving is rounded to 0... so if you have a couple servings, that number can get as high as 1-2g .... Those chips are worthless anyhow, if you "MUST"!!!! have chips, try these,

You can find them in almost all grocery stores nowadays, and they are made from sweet potatoes and other nutritious vegetables/potatoes.... plus they are cooked in olive oil, not hydrogenated oils. And they taste good :D

random fact from Wickipedia: Sun Chips are called 'Grain Waves' in Australia/New Zealand.

Also, here is the nutrition info:

Go to one of those As Seen On TV stores. They usually have something that will slice things thin.

Isn't it dangerous to use oliove oil to fry potatoes? I heard there are some health issues surrounding that. I think the composition of olive oil changes when its heated to high temperatures.

I don't think he was frying them...baking them. I make roasted potatoes all the time. Not to hijack the thread, but here's a very easy recipe:

Red Bliss potatoes cubed (leave skin on)
3 tblsp olive oil
1/4 cup rosemary
salt to taste

Put all that in a bowl and combine (I just put a piece of plastic wrap over the bowl and shake it like crazy)

Put potatoes in shallow baking pan
Bake @ 375 for about 45 min, turning once or twice, or until deisred crispness.

These taste frickin' awesome!
