Everyone loves to have chips in their leisure time or while watching a film. Like lay’s and uncle chips, Pringles too is one of the most widely loved chips worldwide. Pringles is known for maintaining a uniform shape and size unlike other chip making companies where we can see chips of different shapes and sizes and some even in broken pieces. Witnessing this usual phenomenon, the question often comes to our mind if they are made from potatoes. Answer to which is a big no. The high amount of processing and low potato content make Pringles technically not potato chips. Instead of shaving bits off of a potato and deep frying them, the company starts with a slurry of rice, wheat, corn, and potato flakes and presses them into shape. So these potato chips aren’t really potatoes at all. 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 are 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 are blown dry, sprayed with powdered flavors, and at last, flipped onto a slower-moving conveyor belt in a way that allows them to stack. After this process, they are filled into the cans.
