Full Answer

Low-fat or reduced-fat potato chips have a lower oil content, so they are not as greasy as regular potato chips. To achieve a less greasy potato chip product, companies employ different methods of cooking them. Some use a flash-baking process to remove excess oil and reduce fat, while others use an oil-free "popping" process that involves heating potato slices in a pressurized chamber and then quickly releasing them.
