Frito-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.
