FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WITH WHAT INGREDIENTS TSAKIRIS CHIPS ARE MADE OF?

Tsakiris Chips are made exclusively from carefully selected, 100% natural potatoes which are fried in vegetable oil. They are produced and packaged in state of the art installations in Atalanti, Fthiotida which are certified under ISO 9001 and ISO 22000 and operate in accordance with the strictest health provisions and requirements.

DO YOU USE GREEK POTATOES?

We aim to use mainly Greek raw materials as their flavour and quality is excellent. If we cannot source sufficient raw materials to cover production then, and only then, we use raw materials from other European countries.

WHAT PART DO SNACKS PLAY IN OUR EVERYDAY DIET?

Like all foods, snacks can be part of a balanced diet. Snacks are delicious and readily available, and often combined with everyday entertainment and fun moments. They should be consumed in moderation and as part of a balanced daily routine that includes exercise.

DO POTATO CHIPS MAKE YOU FAT?

The UK guidelines for healthy eating show that snacks can be part of an overall balanced diet when consumed in moderation. It is generally accepted that 8-10% of our calories can come from snacks. As the acceptable daily calorie intake for an adult is 2000 calories, this 8-10% corresponds to 160-200 calories. For example, a pack (25g) of Tsakiris Classic Salt potato chips contains 130 calories.
