We have all experienced opening a big puffy bag of chips and swoosh. All the air is let out and you’re left with a few pieces at the bottom of your packet. What a disappointment! Is the company really trying to rip you off or is there a real reason why they do so?
The air-filled in our bag of chips is nitrogen. Yes, you heard it right. Nitrogen keeps your chips crisp and preserved. Who would love soggy chips? So the next time you blame the company for ripping you off trying asking this question, why do manufacturers calculate the net weight by including the air in our of chips?
