If you find a green potato chip in the bag – should you eat it?

Every once in a while you might come across a potato chip with green edges...

Go ahead and eat it if you really want to. If you’ve heard that green potatoes have turned poisonous, that’s true. But you would have to eat about 2 pounds of WHOLE green potatoes in order to feel the effects. The toxic solanine in green potatoes is mostly near the surface of the skin. Once peeled and processed, the fraction that remains is not enough to do us any harm.

If the potato chip in question is really dark brown, you might want to skip it. The sugar levels and amino acids in that chip are off, and so is the taste.
