    Not much difference; additives such as high salt content can be unhealthy.

    Neither are healthy.... They are full with unhealthy processed vegetable oils and Omega 6 fatty acids.....An imbalanced Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio causes inflammation and most people have far too many Omega 6s in their diet and far too little Omega 3s.....Omega 3s are anti-inflammatory and can lower Triglycerides.... The correct Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio is 4:1 but most Americans have a ratio of about 1:15.

    Omega 6 Foods (Eat less of these)

    Corn Chips, Fast Food, Safflower Oil, Cured Meats.

    (The exception to this rule is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is a very healthy Omega 6 fat).

    Omega 3 Foods (Eat more of these)

    Mackerel (North Atlantic), Sardines (Pacific), Salmon (Wild Alaskan), Anchovies, Black Cod, Walnuts, Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds. (If you're vegan or vegetarian you can consume Algae Oil supplements).

    And just REAL vegetables, not vegetable chips that have been processed....Vegetables have dietary fiber that helps reduce bad cholesterol and lower the risk of heat disease....the NUMBER ONE KILLER in the United States.

    crisps aren't unhealthy if you eat them in moderation. Potato, salt and a bit of sunflower oil is not unhealthy

    no there is still salt sugar fat and other additives which you cant avoid because no one cares for he welfare of their consumers they just want their stuff to have a longer shelf life although they are a bit better
