What to Eat with Diabetes: Best ChipsDiabetic living logo

By Jessie Shafer & Jane Burnett, RD, LD
Looking for a better snack chip? Try one of our 18 winners or finalists that are dietitian-approved and taste-tested. We conducted blind taste panels with more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, and awarded the top-rated pretzels, flavored chips, cheesy chips, plain potato chips, BBQ chips, and corn chips our Diabetic Living What to Eat seal of approval.

Taste-Tested and Diabetes-Friendly
It’s not easy to find diabetes-friendly snack options — especially foods that are notoriously unhealthful, such as greasy chips and salty pretzels. But we knew there had to be some delicious products out there. So we went on a mission to track down all the options that met our nutrition guidelines. Then we sent those products through a series of taste tests.

Some were too crunchy; others weren’t crunchy enough. But after being tasted by more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, the best-tasting chips and pretzels rose to the top. The winner in each category received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ award. Pop open a bag and taste how yummy healthful snacks can be!
