Boulder Canyon Expands Potato Chips Cooked In Rice Bran Oil Range
Potato snacks manufacturer Boulder Canyon Authentic Foods expands its innovative line of Rice Bran Oil Kettle Cooked Potato Chips with the introduction of two new savory flavors — Buffalo Ranch and Sweet Chipotle.
The new varieties will be unveiled at this year’s Natural Products Expo West show in Anaheim, California, March 7-11 in booth 961. Boulder’s Rice Bran Kettle Cooked Potato Chips are sold in grocery, natural food, club and mass merchandise retailers with a suggested retail price of USD3.49 per 5.25 oz. package.
Buffalo Ranch and Sweet Chipotle flavors join Boulder’s existing rice bran line that includes Roasted Jalapeno and Himalayan Pink Salt varieties.
Cooked in 100% pure rice bran oil, these chips feature a balance of heart-friendly polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats. The unique oil is extracted from the hard-outer brown layer of rice after the tuff and provides a smooth mild taste with a crispy finish.
Steve Sklar, senior vice president for Boulder Canyon Authentic Foods, says: “In the past three years we’ve pushed the traditional snack boundaries with avocado, coconut, olive and now rice bran oil.”
The chips are cooked in small batch kettles to provide a more uniform heft and a heartier crunch, and the kettle-cooked approach provides as much as a 30% reduction in fat from traditional continuous-cooking methods.
Like all Boulder snacks, Buffalo Ranch and Sweet Chipotle feature only clean ingredients and contain no trans fats and no cholesterol. In addition, they are gluten free and Kosher certified.
