Lay's Switches to NuSun Oil

Lay's Potato ChipsFrito-Lay announced earlier this month that it modified its popular Lay's and Ruffle's brand of potato chips by switching to NuSun sunflower oil from cottonseed oil.

The company claims the potato chips will have 50% less saturated fat without having changed the taste. As a result, the chips will also have increased mono- and polyunsaturated fats, commonly known as "good fats". The chips will still have 0 grams of trans fats.

The new formulation potato chips are selling right now in the northeast USA, and will be nationally available by the end of the year.

I wonder if this has some connections to the fact that Wesson(r) sunflower oil is no longer available? (The makers of Wesson(r) told me that there was no demand for sunflower oil -- maybe there is too much?)

Hmm... I wonder if this new buyer of sunflower oil is connected to the decision by the makers of Wesson(R) to stop marketing sunflower oil in retail packages. (When I asked the makers of Wesson(R) oil, I was told there was no longer a demand for sunflower oil.)

But if the final product, our beloved Lays classic potato chips still tastes good. Then let them change. :)
