Yes, WOW is made with Olean.

If you sit down and eat a bag of chips then your in trouble. If you do some reading on it with a little experimentation you can come down to an acceptable amount.

The long and short of it is this....your body absorbs alot of fats while it travels through the intenstines. More or less once your stomach has finished breaking things down the oils from the deep frying pass by themselves. The vegetable oil, Olean, has been chemically altered to NOT be absorbed by your intenstine.

Good points, its really vegetable oil, so they taste just like regular chips. The bad...well deppending on how much you eat determines how much undigestable oil, in a pure form, travels through you.

Don't need to draw a picture at this point, but if you eat these on an empty stomach were there are no other byproducts to absorb the extra undigested oil then you get some of the more unpleasant side effects.

Its not something we have everyday but for those times when you want something bad that tastes good they work well.

I see, thanks for a little education Eric, I was really discouraged from my own not so pretty incidents, and I haven't had any of them for 6,7 years (and they are not found here in Italy anyway...) but I think I have done those no no's as you described. It is a good thing to keep in mind if you do choose to use that product...

As always, I think moderation is the key. If you eat an entire bag of regular chips you probably won't feel too great either. Keep in mind what a serving really is.

We just came back from Chilies restruant. Last time I went there was two months ago. Today was my second day at work full time and I am so exhausted its beyond belief. So I thought I'd treat myself with my favorite hamburger at Chilies. It was great..... but..... now that I have been cutting way back on sodium it tasted way too salty. And greasy for that matter.
