How are the chips made?The company starts with a slurry of rice, wheat, corn, and potato flakes and presses them into shape. The snack-dough is then rolled out like a sheet of ultra-thin cookie dough and cut into chip-cookies by a machine. The cut is complete enough that the chips are fully free of the extra dough, which is lifted away from the chips by a machine.
The chips move forward on a conveyor belt until they're pressed into molds, which give them the curve that makes them fit into one another. Those molds move through boiling oil and fry for a few seconds. Then they're blown dry, sprayed with powdered flavors and flipped onto a slower-moving conveyor belt in a way that allows them to stack. From then on, it's into the cans and off towards the consumers.
