Are Pringles chips made from real potatoes
Food: Foodwatch warns of Pringles chips
According to consumer advocates, Pringles chips are said to be heavily contaminated with acrylamide. According to Foodwatch, anyone who eats five chips a day is exceeding critical limits. In a comparison test, several cheap chips performed significantly better.
The consumer organization Foodwatch tested a total of 16 potato chip products. According to the report, the “Pringles Paprika” variety from the manufacturer Procter & Gamble contains 34 times more acrylamide than the comparable Lidl product “Rusti Chips Paprika”, which won the test. According to Foodwatch, an organic product from Molenaartje is also contaminated with 1,600 micrograms per kilogram as the conventional “Pringles” test loser.
The substance acrylamide, which can arise during baking and deep-frying, cannot be completely avoided, but it can be greatly reduced by changing the production method. Foodwatch expert Matthias Wolfschmidt stated: "The Federal Government's method of winning over manufacturers to improve production in minimization talks is useless and endangers the health of consumers in a completely unnecessary way."
The consumer rights organization suggested labeling products - from red for a lot to green for a little acrylamide. A labeling requirement would lead to competition for the lowest pollution and better, healthier products, it said.
Cheap chips did better
According to Foodwatch, the Lidl test winner was 47 micrograms of acrylamide per kilogram, followed by the Aldi counterpart “Feurich stackable chips paprika” with 220 micrograms. All other test results, including branded products such as “Funny frisch” and “Chio” or chips from Lorenz were above this.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the daily dose should not exceed one microgram of acrylamide per kilogram of body weight. Accordingly, a child weighing 20 kilograms should not eat more than five chips of the “Pringles” variety tested and should not consume any other roasted product such as toast or breakfast cereal, which may also contain acrylamide.
According to Foodwatch, the “Pringles” brand is the market leader for stack potato chips with a 70 percent share. "So that consumers can defend themselves against unnecessary contamination of the food with the risk substance acrylamide, foodwatch will start a protest action on the Internet," explained the organization.
