Frozen finger chips or French fries are thin strips of pre-cut potatoes that can be stored in freezing temperatures. They are widely packaged in air-tight bags to prevent the product from moisture or microbiological spoilage. Consequently, they can be preserved for an extended period of time when placed inside refrigerators. These frozen products require lesser amounts of oil for their preparation, unlike their fresh counterparts, which has contributed to their widespread popularity among consumers. They can be baked or fried to achieve a crunchy exterior as well as a light and fluffy interior. Characterized by a light-yellow color, they are generally seasoned with salt and spices and widely consumed as a side dish with burgers and sandwiches.
