If you’re going to have a cheat meal on the keto diet, which one is better to have—potato chips or french fries?

Heat breaks down starch, and it releases the sugar. A raw potato has zero effect on your blood sugar. But, when you start heating it, that’s when things start to go downhill. 

On the glycemic index, below 55 is low, and above 70 is high.

• Fried potatoes or french fries are at 75 on the glycemic index.
• Potato chips are at 54 on the glycemic index. 

Potato chips are better than french fries when you look at the glycemic index, but what about other factors. 

Potato chips:
• Oil Trans fat/GMO
• Sugar 
• Chemicals 

French fries are often consumed with ketchup or meat, which can cause the glycemic index to be higher than 75, which can cause additional problems. 

French fries are usually consumed with a meal. Potato chips are usually consumed as a snack, which adds a spike in insulin. 

Having a potato chip at the end of a meal instead of a snack would be a better choice, especially if it was cooked in olive oil or avocado oil.

Potato chips versus french fries, which one is better: Overall, potato chips are better to have than french fries. 

However, when starches like potato chips and french fries are cooked above 250 degrees Fahrenheit, it creates a chemical called acrylamide. Acrylamide may cause cancer.
