The package says "Made With REAL VEGETABLES", which I love, but how many real vegetables? I'm sure I could have just had a V8, but when I crave chips, I like the idea of a "healthy" option.

  • Well, there almost certainly is no meat. – SAJ14SAJ May 2 '14 at 21:29
  • If it has a bar-code, count it as zero. Vegetables come off a tree or out of the ground etc. Usually from your garden, or a specialist store like a Greengrocer. Supermarkets sometimes sell things that look like vegetables, but don't be fooled – TFD May 2 '14 at 21:47

All anyone but Nabisco can really say is "not much."

Ingredients are listed by weight in decreasing order. The ingredients for those chips say:

ENRICHED FLOUR (WHITE FLOUR, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE {VITAMIN B1}, RIBOFLAVIN {VITAMIN B2}, FOLIC ACID), SOYBEAN OIL, SUGAR, CORNSTARCH, DEFATTED WHEAT GERM, DEHYDRATED VEGETABLE BLEND (CONTAINS CARROTS, ONIONS, CABBAGE, TOMATO, RED AND GREEN BELL PEPPERS) ...(not vegetables)...

There's 6g of sugar per 49g of chips, so at most, there's 6g of dried vegetables, probably less. And given the vitamin content (2% daily value of vitamin A) I doubt there's enough to really matter. They're there to provide a little bit of flavor and to make the chips look a little healthier.
