Potato chips represent one of the most popular snack foods consumed across the globe. These are thin slices of potato which are seasoned after being fried until crisp. At the time of frying, the sugar present in potatoes combine with amino acids and turns brown which results in the yellowish-brown colour of potato chips. In addition to this, potato chips are processed and stored in such a way that they are inert towards any microbiological spoilage, chemical and enzymatic activities as well as moisture or other vapor migration. The taste, texture and colour of the chips remain unaltered for a long period of time. Apart from this, potato chips are generally packed and sold in air-tight plastic bags which significantly increases the longevity of the products.
