Have any of you eaten those Chili Cheese Flavored Fritos? My mind might be playing tricks on me, but that is what these corn nibblers remind me of. I went in search to see just what those Fritos are made of and all I can say is, “Thank God that I don’t eat those anymore!”
How do I, a raw food chef know what Fritos taste like? Well, I wasn’t a health conscience eater for the first 35 years of life and Fristos landed in my grocery cart many of times.
I remember my mom would make her famous Chili and then put a layer of those chips on top… it was a favorite of mine. But thank goodness, I don’t eat that way anymore. Look at the list of ingredients that I was putting into my body!
Here is the ingredient list of flavored Fritos:Whole corn, corn oil, salt, whey, spices, cheddar cheese (cultured milk, salt, enzymes), whey protein concentrate, wheat flour, tomato powder, monosodium glutamate (MSG), sodium caseinate, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, Romano cheese from cow’s milk (cultured pasteurized part skim milk, salt, enzymes), dextrose, onion powder, sugar, natural flavor, butter (cream, salt), disodium phosphate, buttermilk solids, citric acid, garlic powder, artificial colors, lactic acid, disodium inosinate, and disodium guanylate.
And to think I did it with four ingredients. :) Ok, so they aren’t an exact replica, but hey, for me they take the place of ever needing to eat Fritos again. These nibblers are great for snacking or even for sprinkling on a salad for a splash of flavor and crunch.
